Fiber-to-the-premises in rural New Hampshire

We advised the New Hampshire Electric Cooperative on the development of a $150M+ fiber-to-the-premises network under a partnership model in rural parts of New Hampshire.


A rural electric cooperative sought ways to leverage its existing infrastructure to bring high-quality future-proofed broadband internet service to residents in its service area, while minimizing its financial exposure and transferring substantial commercial risk to a private partner.

The Approach

We advised a rural electric cooperative in the Northeast region of the United States on the potential construction and operation of a $150M+ fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) network in their service territory. We, along with our partner, CTC Technology & Energy, helped the cooperative develop, evaluate, and compare marketable partnership options.

We were responsible for developing and executing a competitive procurement process, guiding the cooperative through key decisions on the funding and financing of the network, and structuring the transaction to achieve optimal risk transfer.


A replicable model for rural fiber partnerships.

Exciting project with a huge impact

“NHEC understands that current investments in broadband are the equivalent of the Eisenhower highway investments in the 1950s. We helped NHEC think through the different business and ownership models that allow them to be at the center of this transition..”
