According the program description on the Broadband Communities web site:

Capital is once again flowing into next-generation network infrastructure, ending a long dry spell. This time around, network operators have gotten more creative about financing: They’re finding money in new places, developing new mechanisms for funding, and combining funding sources in novel ways.

There’s private money for public networks … public money for private networks … debt, equity and lease financing … and grants from sources you may not have thought of.

At the Financing Fiber Networks workshop, you’ll learn which types of funding are most suitable for your organization – and how to successfully pursue them.
