Businesses are seeking faster, more efficient ways of serving their customers. You might expect that in big cities high-speed services like those available via the Mason County PUD No. 3 backbone would be inexpensive and readily available. They are neither.
At the heart of the PUD 3 network is a high-speed, scalable fiber optic system. The PUD has built a system of fiber optic distribution with high reliability, fast response time and tremendous capacity for transmission of data-heavy information, including voice, video and computer communications.
HOWEVER, in Mason County high-speed services are inexpensive compared to services in metropolitan areas, and are becoming more accessible. PUD 3 has placed its fiber optic system, the expertise of its staff, access to publicly owned region-wide communications systems and commitment to the community in the forefront of the effort to bring the very latest communications services to Mason County.
Working with its retail service providers, the Mason County PUD No. 3 telecommunications department is committed to providing the best service possible, on an open access, nondiscriminatory, at cost basis.
The advanced services offered over the PUD network allow businesses to connect remote office via a local VPN. It also offers the capability of remote access to other locations via our connections to the carrier network.
