Tahoe Network Infrastructure extends the reach of its Marion, Wis E-Rate fiber network

June 4, 2024
The new fiber network build will bring fiber to other entities in the area, including local businesses and government agencies.

Tahoe Network Infrastructure, the parent company of E-Vergent, has expanded its recent E-Rate network win in Marion, Wisconsin, where the service provider will build fiber network facilities for a local school. 

By establishing anchor tenants like local schools via E-Rate, E-Vergent can not only provide more compelling educational opportunities with access to digital resources; they can also have a starting point to attract other parts of a community to leverage their fiber network platform.

Known for its expertise in building open access fiber networks, E-Vergent will now extend its reach to serve more communities, businesses, and institutions in the region.

Tahoe Network Infrastructure has grown rapidly. Since acquiring E-Vergent, the management team has doubled E-Vergent’s fiber miles over the last year.

Greg Green, the original co-founder and CEO of Fatbeam, “said he took a page out of Fatbeam’s E Rate playbook, which he created during his tenure there. Which had great success and plans on further E-Rate expansion over the upcoming years with E-Vergent.” Green and his partner later sold Fatbeam to Basalt Infrastructure Partners LLC for a quarter billion dollars in the spring of 2023.

This expansion marks a significant milestone for Tahoe Network Infrastructure, part of a broader plan to extend services into more parts of the Midwest that lacked options for competitively priced fiber network services.
