VETRO Cares

Community Broadband Package

VETRO wants to accelerate community initiatives to bring high speed broadband to residents and businesses with our industry-leading combination of software, services and data, tailor-made for public sector project planning.

To embrace this challenge, we have established our Digital Divide Solutions Practice, led by Vice President of Broadband Strategy Brian Mefford. This arm of VETRO is focused on empowering local governments, non-profits, and network planners, owners and operators that are seeking or have received public funding by equipping them with the technology solutions needed to deploy critically important fiber optic network infrastructure successfully.

VETRO Cares Program

The VETRO Cares Community Broadband Solution

The VETRO Team created the VETRO Cares program to provide planning and design tools that can help accelerate broadband expansion in local communities throughout the US.

VETRO Cares extends the value of the core VETRO FiberMap platform, the same platform used nationwide by ISPs, Engineering Firms, professional broadband planners and others, to local broadband initiatives.  At a basic level, anything that a local committee was doing in Google Earth for mapping and asset inventory or in spreadsheets for cost estimation can be done in the VETRO Fiber Management platform.  And moving this data and work into a cloud-based platform provides a virtual table and map for all stakeholders to collaborate around.

Let's Connect
VETRO Cares: State Agencies

For state broadband agencies, VETRO Cares is a platform of record, intelligently mapping and inventorying the state’s existing broadband infrastructure and coverage gaps.   along with data layers the agency needs to get a clear picture of their state’s progress in bridging the digital divide. Beyond simple mapping, VETRO offers state broadband offices a publishing engine for maps of served and unserved areas, as well as a collaboration and reporting platform that unlocks  transparency and pathways to accountability around grantmaking programs.

VETRO Cares: Community Planners

This program is being rolled out in managed groups, with the first rollout being in VETRO’s home state of Maine and launched in November, 2021.  VETRO will be bringing the program to other states over the course of 2021 and running calls for participation.
