The news from FremontConnect, the Local Broadband Planning Team for Fremont County, CO
FremontConnect held their regular meeting this past week in Canon City.
1. Secom will be offering middle mile services via fiber in Fremont
County in the next few months (middle mile provider #2)
2. Optimum (Cablevision) will be offering middle mile services via
fiber in the next few months (middle mile provider #3
3. EagleNet will be offering middle mile services via microwave some
time in the next year (middle mile provider #4)
4. Last mile providers, vendors from the local telecom value network
and community anchor institutions are eagerly awaiting middle mile
services that are: "redundant, abundant and affordable"
FremontConnect has been meeting for less than one year (first meeting FEB 2012) and it appears they are well on their way to solving their middle mile problems. Rather than wait for someone in Washington, Wall Street ofr Denver to solve the issue (good luck with that!), the citizens of Fremont County formed a Local Broadband Planning Team, applied the "5 A's", and are now well on their way to fixing the broadband deficit.
