Many rural and tribal communities were bypassed during the fiber builds of the late 1990s and early 2000s. Connecting these communities was too costly, took too long to build, or represented too small of a market to serve. Arcadian is fixing this problem. The Arcadian fiber backbone purposely routes the internet backbone from major US cities through these smaller markets, affording low-cost market access for providers that could not serve these markets before. We’ve created partnerships with many rural and tribal communities that will directly benefit from broadband access from these providers.
