Building City Fiber Optic Network

o No portion of city is omitted
o All residence will have option of subscription to service
o Most services have 1 terabyte limit
o Ped-a-bit is 1000 terabytes
o The network is engineered for 10 gigs but can work beyond that for decades to
come

Will build out to new developments at no cost to property
No Data Caps No overage charges
Fiber is the Future
Started in SW corner of city now to City Hall fanning out to cover all of city
144 strands of fiber flow through micro duct which is being laid in street.
Lots of great info and technical talk. Exciting development for the community.
Fiber lines can be used in future by any company and hopefully we will not have to dig up streets again.
