Zayo and PEAK collaborate to provide redundant, affordable and reliable service to under-served rural communities in Oregon
The pandemic served as a perfect acid test for connectivity around the world: bottlenecks and points of weakness in infrastructure were quickly exacerbated as everyone moved almost overnight to remote work and learning. In the Mid- Willamette Valley area in Oregon, the decades-old, substandard home Internet infrastructure stood out in stark relief very quickly. Local K-12 students were particularly affected.
Zayo’s ever-expanding, carrier-grade network helped provide redundant, affordable and reliable service to under-served rural communities in Oregon. As a result of this collaboration, PEAK was able to pull off a pretty incredible feat with Zayo’s help, servicing 350 homes in 100 days, working tirelessly to extend broadband to K-12 student families.
