Render Networks is set to deploy US$500 million of telecommunications infrastructure across the United States over the next three years and anticipates this number will grow substantially with planned US Federal government funding and capital expenditure in the coming year.
Newly contracted telecom infrastructure projects across California, Tennessee and Mississippi, will effectively double the size of Render’s US rollout footprint. These projects join a growing portfolio of major network and construction partners, including Craighead Electric Cooperative, Ervin Cable, The Broadband Group, Irby Utilities, Centurylink, and City Utilities of Springfield.
Render Networks CEO, Sam Pratt said:
“The digital divide is acute in the US. Both state and federal governments are committed to underwriting the rollout, including US $20B in near-term funding and recently-announced stimulus packages. Secondly, US telecommunication and utility operators want to deliver these deployments as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.
“Everything is lining up for Render to be part of the solution to this industry challenge. Render’s construction management technology is first-in-market to deliver end-to-end digital construction projects, synchronising geospatial data in real-time across all stakeholders to easily monitor progress and streamline Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) and wireless network rollouts.”
