Two Colorado Broadband Stimulus Winners Select EXA Powered Calix Access Platforms For Regional Projects

Stocks in this article: CALX

Calix, Inc. (NYSE:CALX) today announced that Broadband Stimulus award winners Nunn Telephone Company (Nunn) and Wiggins Telephone Association (WTA) have each selected Ethernet Extensible Architecture (EXA) Powered Calix Unified Access platforms and the 700GE family of optical network terminals (ONTs) to address their respective Fiber Forward initiatives in northern Colorado. Both companies plan to use these awards to bring advanced broadband services to “unserved” and “underserved” communities throughout the region. These projects, which were awarded through the Broadband Initiatives Program (BIP), in aggregate amount to over $9.5 million in overall funds and consist of $6 million in grants and $3.5 million in loans, which include plant engineering, materials, labor, and other costs, including access equipment.

“By bringing fiber-to-the-premises to our communities, we are enabling the network capacity to not only meet the service requirements of our subscribers today, but also be prepared for more advanced services in the years to come,” said Greg Grablander, general manager at Nunn. “We see this initiative as laying the foundation for future economic development and improved quality of life in our communities, and positioning our north central Colorado serving area as an alternative to big city living with superior broadband resources. This project is critically important to our region, and Calix’s deep experience in fiber access and rural broadband gives us the peace of mind that we have chosen the right partner to make this ambitious plan a reality.”

“Two years ago, subscribers in the communities targeted by our Stimulus project were begging us for advanced broadband services, but we didn’t have the resources to connect them,” said Terry Hendrickson, CEO of WTA. “Our Stimulus award will allow us to bring vital broadband connectivity to these communities, enabling access to a range of new services and fostering economic development. Calix has been a long-time partner to WTA, and we are looking forward to working with them to bring twenty-first century services to these rural communities.”
