Things are Happening

Well, a lot has been happening with the Broadband Committee and the Board of Selectman.

  • BBC (Broadband Committee) developed "Executive Summary" for Board
  • Last week there was a public workshop, including Mark Ouellette of Axiom for a roundtable discussion of Public/Private partnerships, hardware, future uses of Internet, copper vs. fiber.
    • This week, Mark returned for additional discussions.
    • The selectman authorized up to $5,000 for Axiom to commence a "Pole" audit. 
    • Poles are the typical (but not the only) method of running fiber. The first step is to count poles and determine condition.
    • BBC is developing plan for Axiom of other "next steps".
    • BBC formulating Public Outreach program (yes we'll be looking for a few volunteers to donate a few hours of time) to make sure Chebeaguers know more about this process.
