Fort Dodge Municipal Broadband Network

Fort Dodge Municipal Broadband Network

United States

A community that wants to participate in the 21st century economy needs access to a 21st century telecommunications infrastructure. That means fiber optics, providing virtually unlimited bandwidth and unmatched reliability.

Fiber networks are expensive. If they weren’t, incumbent operators would have upgraded already to utilize the capacity and reliability that fiber brings. Therefore, it appears unlikely that either of the incumbent providers will build fiber-to-the-home anytime in the foreseeable future. The economics are simply not favorable for these companies to invest the millions of dollars needed in a single community.

So, what can Fort Dodge do to address this challenge? The most likely paths appear to be investment in a publicly owned municipal fiber network, the attraction of a new provider, or some combination of public and private investment. Any of these paths require information on the current state of broadband in Fort Dodge, the potential market for a new provider (public or private), and the potential costs for such a network.
