Conexon: Partner

Jonathan has worked for over thirty years at start-up telecommunications companies and in the U.S. Government. Prior to joining Conexon, Jonathan served as Chief of the Office of Strategic Planning for the Federal Communications Commission. Jonathan was part of the senior leadership at the FCC that reformed $12 billion in annual federal spending, including the rural and high cost fund, e-rate, telecommunications relay services and the lifeline programs.

the only FTTH networks built completely without government assistance;
the only FTTH electric coop networks that are operating profitably without subsidies;
the largest ongoing rural FTTH construction projects in the country.
