Twelve potential parties are interested in partnering up with Bloomington’s Gigabit-class broadband initiative.
Mayor John Hamilton says he’s encouraged by the response of interested partners that range from local to international.
“I want to be very pragmatic on how we most efficiently and with the highest quality try to overcome the digital divide and make sure Bloomington is a cutting edge city in terms of infrastructure,” Hamilton says.
He says he’ll now take the next few weeks to look over the proposals along with other city officials and the consulting company, CTC Technology and Energy.
Allo Communications, AT&T, Axia Connect Ltd, Centric, Comcast, Fujitsu Network Communications, Macquarie Infrastructure Developments, Metronet, SiFi Networks, Smithville Fiber, Ting Fiber, and Wide Open Networks are the entities that responded.
