Local New Mexico Providers Form Fiber Network with Plans to Span the State

Coverage Type: 

Eleven New Mexico telecom and broadband providers are planning a statewide fiber network to be known as NM Fiber Network LLC. The network is a “multi-year, multi-million dollar” undertaking, NM Fiber Network said. Between them, the 11 providers already have thousands of miles of fiber across the state. The project is expected to augment those assets by increasing capacity and improving reliability. The genesis of the NM Fiber Network was in the New Mexico Broadband Initiative Consortium formed by the governor’s office to develop a state broadband roadmap. The formation of NM Fiber Network “comes at a crucial time for the State of New Mexico as federal and state agencies are gearing up to distribute billions of dollars in broadband grant monies under the Broadband Equity, Access and Deployment (BEAD) program established in the infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act,” the network stated.
