One of the unique aspects about Race Communications is that we strive to serve communities that larger carriers have long ignored. The projects in the Mono County and Five Mining Communities are great examples of what makes Race stand out from the rest. The quaint town of Johannesburg has traits of the old west as it inhabits families, scholars as well as business owners. Lee Vining is a friendly High Sierra community which is a popular tourist destination only minutes away from Tioga Pass, Yosemite National Park, Mono Lake, Bodie (the official state ghost town) and Mammoth Lakes. Lee Vining is a non-CASF project fully funded by Race Communications.
During the application process to the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) for these projects, Race contended that available broadband was insufficient and the communities voiced dissatisfaction with mobile broadband as a substitute for wired broadband. Main issues for the need of reliable broadband included data caps, lack of bandwidth and reliability for functional use for education, healthcare, economic competitiveness and public safety. Race’s Fiber Internet solves many of these issues.
The great news is that installations are just around the corner!
