The $4.4 million project is estimated to provide the state-of-the-art fiber network to more than 4,000 customer locations throughout the city.

"It's important that the residents of Boonville have the connectivity they deserve," said Mayor Charlie Wyatt, City of Boonville. “Building a super-fast, reliable fiber network will give them instant access to online educational, healthcare and business resources.”
