Public ownership of broadband networks is prohibited in Nebraska. But more and more communities in the Cornhusker State are getting fiber networks through private and public-private investments
ALLO Communications (a CBAN provider member) has been a real leader in bringing better broadband to Nebraskans. Since their founding in Nebraska in 2003, the company has brought fiber networks to 25 towns and cities in the state. Several of their projects in Nebraska (Lincoln) and Colorado (Fort Morgan) have been a result of public-private projects between ALLO and communities.
Recently, Pinpoint Communications has entered into a public-private partnership agreement with the City of Beatrice to construct a network in the southeast Nebraska city of 12,000. Pinpoint is also based in Nebraska, founded originally as Cambridge Telephone Company in the early 20th century.
