The Public Utilities Commission of Nevada has approved the company’s application to become a Competitive Local Exchange Carrier (CLEC). Blockchains will have the ability to provide high-speed internet connectivity to homeowners, schools and businesses in Storey County.
The proposed multi-million-dollar infrastructure plan, according to a release, is a first step to laying the foundation for all Blockchains, LLC’s digital transactions. As stated within the application, “Upon completion of the fiber ring construction, Blockchains Communications will have the ability to offer fully managed lit services at the 1G, 10G and possibly 40G level, transforming the entire data communications landscape for the companies that operate at TRIC (Tahoe Reno Industrial Center).”
“Blockchains’ plans for Innovation Park require top speed, net neutrality and a commitment to privacy,” says President David Berns. “We are pleased that we were approved for this first step.”
