How is the fiber to the home funded?

Since 2000, KPUD has used a small portion of property taxes and federal funds to construct its fiber optic (broadband) network. This network is made of over 500 miles of world-class, high-speed fiber optic cable, and is used by and connected to many public agencies in Kitsap County. The KPUD network is also used as the trunk system for some of the area's telecommunications companies, who in turn, sell retail services to customers. No water utility funds are used in the KPUD's telecommunications operations.
