Broadband Expands in Benton County

South Benton County now has 50 more miles of fiber optic line for high-speed Internet service through an expanded Benton Public Utility District broadband network.  The expanded network in mostly rural areas was made possible through a $1.8 million federal grant and with the support of the Northwest Open Access Network. The addition provides high-speed Internet service to the Paterson School District, a new fiber optic line to the Mid-Columbia Library in West Richland, and provides the infrastructure for other fiber-optic services.
