The feasibility survey which is being funded by SiFi Networks was approved by the city earlier this month. The survey is a welcomed step forward towards bringing superfast broadband to the city of Nixa. Every residential and business address in the city will receive a postcard promoting the survey to encourage them to go to SiFi Networks’ website and fill out the short form.
Design Nine, who has collaborated with SiFi Networks to carry out the survey, provide technology advice and services to community, business, and public clients. Led by Andrew Cohill, they have a wealth of experience advising municipalities to create sustainable fiber networks.
Scott Bradshaw, President SiFi Networks America commented “SiFi Networks recognize that such a network has many benefits throughout the city and are therefore funding and conducting an online survey.”
SiFi Networks propose to fund and build a next generation infrastructure which will allow the City of Nixa to create an Open Access Fiber network, enabling any Internet Service Provider (ISP) to serve the community. The network has been specifically designed for the City of Nixa and utilizes SiFi Networks’ mix of proprietary and non-proprietary techniques offering the most efficient solution.
It is expected that the study will be completed in six weeks, the city will then have a very clear picture of how to create a sustainable network and economic platform that serves residents and businesses of Nixa not just today but for decades to come.
SiFi Networks has been successful with its proposal to deploy a FTTP (Fiber to the Premise) network throughout Louisville.
The vote of approval by the city permits SiFi Networks to deploy its FOCUS™ technology, building a FiberCity™ allowing for internet connection speeds of upto 1GB (gigabit), up to 50 times faster than the average internet connection.
The network would reach over 100,000 residential properties and over 15,000 business premises in the city.
SiFi Networks is now encouraging residents and businesses in Louisville to register their interest and give feedback on receiving superfast broadband by filling out a short online form on SiFi Networks’ website www.sifinetworks.com/cities/louisville-kentucky
Ben Bawtree‐Jobson, CEO of SiFi Networks commented “We reacted to the Louisville Metro Government’s call for a superfast broadband solution.” Ben added “Recognizing the need for a fiber‐optic network demonstrates the city’s plans to foster innovation, drive job creation and stimulate economic growth, not just today but for decades to come.”
SiFi Networks is an infrastructure enabler and not an ISP (Internet Service Provider), therefore do not provide retail services, but instead work with ISPs that have an interest in serving the residents and businesses of Louisville with the best service at a competitive rate. Locals can register their interest to receive superfast broadband by visiting www.sifinetworks.com/cities/louisville-Kentucky
Scott Bradshaw, President SiFi Networks America commented “Implementing such a network will place Louisville ahead of neighboring cities in terms of technological capabilities, enhancing their attractiveness to potential new residents and businesses.” Scott added “We are now looking forward to building long term relationships in Louisville; we welcome comments and feedback on our online registration portal.”
SiFi Networks’ next steps will be to finalize the design of the network and continue discussions with ISP’s who wish to take advantage of the opportunity to serve the residents and businesses of Louisville.
