    • 1. OPEN ACCESS COMMUNITY BROADBAND NETWORK—NORTHERN NEW MEXICO NADO ATC August 25-27, 2013
    • 2. BACKGROUND A regional economic development plan was developed for Northern New Mexico which identified high-speed broadband as a priority. Federal funding for broadband became available through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Local and tribal governments in Northern New Mexico worked together to submit applications for broadband funding. The North Central New Mexico Economic Development District (NCNMEDD) was awarded a $10.6 million grant to construct REDI Net--a broadband network for Northern New Mexico. Project cost = $13.5 million. Federal grant leveraged with matching funds, rights-of-way, and other local resources. Construction began on the REDI Net project and construction completed July 2013. 140 miles of 144-strand fiber optics connecting approximately 120 community institutions. 2 2007 2008 2009-10 Aug 2010 June 2011 In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless but planning is indispensable.

    • 7. BOTTOM LINE “According to Regional Transit District Executive Director Anthony Mortillaro, REDI Net has been a vast improvement over their previous internet connections since the District began using REDI Net a few months ago. Mortillaro said that before REDI Net the District had cycled through Tewa and Windstream with low bandwidths, unreliable connections, and expensive monthly bills. The District even flirted with a T-1 line before determining it was too expensive after learning that it would cost $600 per month plus a $700 installation fee. For Mortillaro and the Transit District, REDI Net came at the right place at the right time. Mortillaro said since switching to REDI Net, they’ve had virtually no connectivity and bandwidth issues. If the network is ever in need of maintenance, REDI Net contacts the District and gives them fair warning. And at $300 per month with no installation fee, Mortillaro said he couldn’t be happier with the service he’s getting for the cost. You can’t get that type of speed with the other Internet service providers in the area,” said Mortillaro.
