Frequently Asked Questions

Public Utility Districts (PUDs) were created to provide utilities to unserved and underserved communities. 100 years ago, the major utility needed was electricity. PUDs helped build this critical infrastructure out to rural areas where private electric providers were not investing. NoaNet continues this mission today, bringing high-speed telecommunications services to those communities lacking access.
