The Limits of Fixed Wireless Technology for Rural Communities

CTC Technology & Energy

Wednesday, June 22, 2022 - 2:00pm
Time Zone: 
Virtual Event

As state governments examine how to best invest federal funds to deploy broadband in unserved and underserved areas, a new study — commissioned by the Communications Workers of America (CWA) and independently developed by CTC Technology & Energy —analyzes fixed wireless technologies and their suitability for delivering broadband service in various environments.

The goals of this evaluation included: 

  • Providing an accessible guide to current and anticipated future fixed wireless technologies; 
  • Demonstrating whether fixed wireless can be a viable approach to delivering broadband to currently unserved residents in various deployment scenarios, such as in urban and rural communities; and
  • Illustrating whether (and in what circumstances) states should consider spending public dollars to subsidize fixed wireless technologies as a permanent solution to meeting residents’ broadband needs.

This webinar will cover the critical technology and cost considerations outlined in the study—including a total cost of ownership analysis of candidate fixed wireless and fiber networks in a range of unserved rural settings.

Moderated by President Joanne Hovis, CTC will host a one-hour webinar open to all.  Webinar presenters include:

  • Linda Hinton, District 4 Vice President, Communications Workers of America

  • Andrew Afflerbach, Ph.D., P.E., Chief Technology Officer and CEO, CTC Technology & Energy
