Detailed Middle-Mile Broadband Network Map

(from MMBI Website)

September 15, 2023 – The more than 10,000-mile Middle Mile Broadband network has been developed in partnership with communities across the state. The network map has been updated to depict how the middle-mile network will unfold to reach all corners of the state.

It creates faster access to the Internet by building a statewide network that includes loops that will bring the internet closer to communities so that homes and businesses can connect with last mile projects. These looped routes are in areas where the internet exists today, not to serve the affluent but to reach those historically disadvantaged.

Map layers reflect the use of cost-effective development approaches to deliver broadband service in less time and maximize the network’s reach throughout California through Indefeasible Rights of Use (IRUs), more commonly known as leasing, as well as joint builds and purchases. This approach will maximize resources to reach unserved and underserved communities as quickly as possible.

The Administration remains committed to funding the entire 10,000 Middle-Mile Network and intends to propose additional funding in the Governor’s proposed budget, which will be released in January. More information will be available at the Middle-Mile Advisory Committee Meeting on October 20, 2023.
