Background and Historical Data
Cass County intends to construct a last mile, Fiber-To-The-Home (FTTH) 1,286 mile network to enable 100 Mbps broadband service to over 11,000 residents, businesses, and critical community anchor institutions in “unserved” and “underserved” areas of rural Cass County. Sponsored by Cass County Commissioners, Gary Mallory, Bill Cook, Brian Baker and overseen by Universal Asset Management of Harrisonville, our design partner is Pulse Broadband. Our construction partner is Atlantic Engineering Group. This is the same fiber architecture team that successfully secured Ralls County Electric Cooperative’s round one BIP award. The development of communications infrastructure in Cass County’s rural areas has not kept pace with the swift advancement of technology and the public need.
