City officials plan to ensure the local economy will have robust Internet access and strong connections to all information highways. The City is building a municipal dark fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) network, and seeks a Network Operator (Operator) who will lease the dark fiber, light the network, and make available capacity to Internet Service Providers (Service Providers) in an open, non-discriminatory fashion.
This RFP is only for the Operator role. The Operator will be expected to manage the business and operational relationships with multiple Service Providers. The City’s goal is to engage a provider who will use the fiber to provide ultra-high-speed network access. The City defines ultra-high-speed as being in the multiple-hundred megabit to gigabit-persecond range.
