A man who built his own broadband to avoid paying high prices receives $2.6 million from the government

After receiving a hefty bill, a man built his own broadband, and the US government has awarded him $2.6 million. After being faced with a $50,000 (Rs 40 lakh) charge to expand web connectivity to his home, Jared Mauch built his own fiber broadband.

Mauch had become weary of paying such high charges for such modest internet speeds of 1.5 Mbps. So, about five years ago, he started construction on the ISP (Internet Service Provider) on his property. He claimed that the major American broadband providers did not expand their quick networks to his neighbourhood, so he “had to build a telephone company to access [high-speed] Internet]” at his home.

Mauch requested that Comcast extend its network to him, but they gave him a hefty quotation of $50,000. (Rs 40 lakh).

“I questioned whether it was worthwhile because the price, at $50,000, was so exorbitant. If I get nothing in return for paying them to grow their network, why would I do it? “The Daily Star cited him as having said. It was a difficult procedure that was only made possible by Mauch’s day job as a network engineer, which allowed him to start Washtenaw Fiber Properties. Mauch initially started the business solely for himself, but soon his furious neighbors joined as well.

Today, the broadband network at Mauch is used by about 70 of his neighbors. Additionally, the government has just granted him funding to serve 600 more homes. For $55 (Rs 4,300) each month, customers can join up for 100 Mbps and unlimited data.
