Fiber in Lake County

Lake County Minnesota has engaged Tim Nulty and Gary Fields for a fiber to the Home project in Lake County. The project would include fiber for each home and business throughout Lake County.

Tim Nulty and Gary Fields will provide the study, design, build, and operation of the network. Lake County will own the asset but will not operate the network.

You can learn more about the project from a recent article in the Lake County News Chronicle; they covered a recent Lake County Board meeting. (Or you can learn a little bit about Tim and Gary’s history with the Iron Range’s former FiberNet project.)

  1. We have created a new non-profit corporation called National Public Broadband, Inc. to design, build and operate community-owned open-access fiber networks as well as provide competitive voice, video and data services over the networks. NPB includes Tim Nulty, CEO; John Schultz, CTO; Brian Estrem, COO; and Gary Fields, CFO. We are currently exploring a range of national opportunities. Lake County, MN is our first engagement.
