Conexon Founding Partner Randy Klindt, considered an electric cooperative broadband pioneer with over 25 years of experience, is widely credited for architecting the most efficient, affordable and sustainable fiber-to-the-home design in use by electric co-ops today.
Conexon Partner Jonathan Chambers has over 30 years of telecommunications regulatory and federal funding experience and spearheaded the largest, most successful bidding consortium in the FCC’s history.
Together the two industry leaders have established Conexon as the leading end-to-end solutions provider in rural fiber broadband design and construction management for electric cooperatives and communities deploying fiber internet.
To date, Conexon has assisted more than 300 electric cooperatives — 80 of which are deploying fiber networks — helped connect more than 1.1 million fiber-to-the-home subscribers across the U.S., and secured over $2 billion in federal, state and local grants and subsidies for its clients.
In 2021, Conexon launched its internet service provider subsidiary, Conexon Connect, an entity formed to operate and manage cooperative and investor-owned fiber-to-the-home networks. Today, Conexon Connect operates networks in Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi and Missouri.
Rural Electric Cooperatives have been demonstrating their commitment to bettering rural America for 80 years: the impetus for the rural electrification movement to bring electricity to their unserved, unlit, communities starting in the 1930s. Since then, co-ops have continued to strive to improve the lives of the members they serve, today working to bring high-speed internet access to all members. At Conexon, we believe in rural America. We believe rural Americans deserve the same opportunities as the rest of the country. And we believe the perseverance, hard work and grit of the electric cooperatives we partner with make them ideal to deliver world-class fiber-optic internet to the communities left behind until now. Join Conexon and the rural fiber broadband movement to close the Digital Divide with fiber to the home.
