What is Turnkey ACP™?

The middle mile NOFO defines “middle mile infrastructure” as “any broadband infrastructure that does not connect directly to an end-user location, including an anchor institution; and includes— (i) leased dark fiber, interoffice transport, backhaul, carrier-neutral internet exchange facilities, carrier-neutral submarine cable landing stations, undersea cables, transport connectivity to data centers, special access transport, and other similar services; and (ii) wired or private wireless broadband infrastructure, including microwave capacity, radio tower access, and other services or infrastructure for a private wireless broadband network, such as towers, fiber, and microwave links.”

This section can be completed directly, or via your consultant (you’ll be able to invite them to your application model).

The NTIA requires middle mile grant applicants to submit their information via its online portal. But it encourages applicants to maintain a copy of all this information safely in separate documentation.
