Municipal Fiber Services Roadmap
Reliable, high speed internet connectivity is not a luxury of tomorrow but a utility of today. Now more than ever the necessity of broadband internet services is evident in most every function of our life…from online education, working from home, remote doctors’ visits and more. Our future relies on connectivity.
The challenge facing municipalities is not if they need high speed internet, but how do they acquire it and position it as an economic development tool for both the Town and citizens effectively to provide progressive municipal and community advancement.
