Griff Wigley was kind enough to post an update on Northfield’s plan for their fiber future (in the post comments). They decided that the ARRA stimulus funding did not make sense. Here’s the update he quoted:
It was reported that Northfield had greater opportunities to fund a FTTP network by pursuing a low interest loan rather than applying for federal stimulus dollars. Staff was asked to research alternative financing options and report back to Council. This discussion item will update the Council on the financing options that were researched.
