NoaNet was founded in 2000 by Washington Public Utility Districts to realize the economic benefits of broadband to unserved and underserved areas of Washington State. Quality and affordable broadband access for all Washington State communities is necessary to thrive in today’s digital age. A lack of sufficient bandwidth or broadband limits educational opportunities and information exchange, and it discourages businesses to relocate or expand.
The NoaNet Mission: Leverage relationships and resources to develop and operate a world-class, open-access information technology platform and network that enhances people’s lives and business opportunities in the state of Washington and facilitates member utility operations.
