Parsons Connecting Communities With New Broadband Internet Effort
Centreville, Va. (February 7, 2023) – Parsons Corporation (NYSE: PSN) is leveraging its full spectrum of communications design, program and project management, radio frequency planning, and engineering expertise to help deliver broadband access across the United States. As part of this effort, the company was recently awarded a multi-million-dollar contract to design hundreds of miles of fiber optic installations along freeways for underserved communities.
“Internet access has become as critical for learning, business, and health as electricity and gas are for heating and cooking,” said Peter Torrellas, president, Connected Communities business unit for Parsons. “For the 44 million Americans without standard broadband access, we are eager to get to work and apply our expertise to get these communities online and unlock the myriad social and economic benefits that come with improved digital equity.”
The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) and American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) together appropriated more than $70 billion in new federal funding to help extend broadband to those without access. Parsons has been delivering on smart infrastructure projects across the country for decades, including wireless, wireline, and mission-critical facility broadband projects in Nevada, Ohio, California, Illinois, and Georgia. These access projects are a natural extension of Parsons’ digital transformation of roads, highways, and intersections, which include deployments of the iNET™ Smart Mobility Platform, a cloud-based system that leverages real-time traffic monitoring and predictive analytics to improve traffic management.
