Blandin Foundation is hosting a free webinar May 8 from 3-4 pm with Ron Corriveau of COS Systems on “DIY Tools and Strategies for Communities Google Fiber is NOT calling.” (Register here.)
When community broadband advocates gather around the table to launch broadband initiatives with the ultimate goal of FTTH network deployment, many questions quickly emerge. Important considerations of cost, consumer demand, network design rise to the top of the discussion. Unfortunately, in most community initiatives, there is a shortage of engineers, marketing analysts and utility construction expertise serving on local task forces. How can a community get an initial understanding of the deployment and business opportunities without hiring a full slate of consultants? How can a community deal on more equal footing with prospective network provider partners? COS Systems has technology that can help communities through these initial stages and provide ongoing value through the stages of project development.
