Description:

The project will construct a multi-conduit, underground Fiber to the Premises (FTTP) system, more than two hundred thirty-five (235) total miles, which will connect every household and business within the Winnebago Reservation. Eight hundred eighty-six (886) households and 46 businesses and organizations will have access to fiber bringing high-quality internet capability, including medical facilities and schools.  The fiber-optic installation alignment is generally located on the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska Reservation, which spans approximately 120,000 acres and is situated primarily in a rural area in the northern half of Thurston County in northeast Nebraska, 20 miles south of Sioux City, Iowa, and 80 miles north of Omaha, Nebraska. U.S. highways 75 and 77 join in the east-central area of the reservation, near the community of Winnebago. A small portion of the reservation is located directly east of the Missouri River west of Interstate 29 in Woodbury County, Iowa.
