Sign the petition to have Tallahassee explore creating a municipal broadband network to increase speeds and connectivity in Tallahassee.
Over 750 communities own and operate their own internet network. As our city grows, it's important to make sure we have the infrastructure in place to meet the demands of the 21st century.
Municipal Fiber Optic Networks are being used around the country to improve their city's business climate and quality of life, lower costs and reduce taxpayer expenditures.
As we look to the future and examine our city's own expenses and planned investment, we are asking the question: Are we prepared for future demands and does the city have a roll to play in connectivity?
The City Commission voted to bring back a feasibility study that would show the current and future needs of government facilities, the availability of fiber optic service city-wide, private sector plans for growth and demonstrate if there is a need that can be filled by a municipal network.
More competition and more information is always good in a free market.
