We are happy to report over a 60% adoption rate for the Dayton project. The Touchet Valley project is complete except for extending a fiber connection across Rose Gulch bridge which is under construction. The Port has notified residents in this project area that they are now able to contact ISP's to connect to service! The Port is currently exploring whether or not to pursue BEAD funding.

The Washington State Broadband office has launched a new digital equity dashboard. The dashboard uses data from different sources to help illustrate the impact of the digital divide in Washington. Access, affordability, and digital literacy are crucial elements everyone needs to participate in the economy and daily life today. Without them, vital access to necessary services over the internet, such as healthcare, education, employment opportunities and government services, are limited.The Washington State Broadband Office will use the dashboard to display and guide their broadband infrastructure and digital equity work.
