What is a feasibility study?
When Finley performs a feasibility study, we propose multiple design, cost and funding options that can help you achieve your most challenging broadband needs. Each study is custom designed with the goal of uncovering new product and service opportunities to optimize costs and drive revenue growth for our customers. View our infographic HERE >>>

Let’s work together to end the digital divide.
Whether you’re a rural electric cooperative, a municipality, telecommunications or another organization exploring broadband opportunities, your goal is the same: find the optimal way to bring high-speed broadband to your community, constituents or customers. When you partner with Finley, you’ll experience an approach to network design and deployment that is as unique as your business. We don’t prescribe “one size fits all” solutions because every customer, territory, network and business case is unique, layered and nuanced. And no matter what type of organization you are, our goal is the same: study the right options that will give you the best opportunity to fund and build a quality broadband network.
