For broadband consultants out there, here’s a potential opportunity. For other communities, here’s a model in case you need to look for a similar service. Thanks for Dakota County for sharing the Request for Broadband Consulting Proposals from Dakota County..
The Dakota Broadband Board is seeking responses/quotes from vendors to update the existing Systems Plan for its broadband fiber network, and to conduct a business analysis of the current broadband environment in Dakota County. Dakota County (MN) is a part of the seven county Twin Cities Metropolitan Area, and its communities range from urban and suburban in the northern portion of the county to its rural towns and townships in the southern half. The outcome of the project is expected to inform future operational and policy decisions of the Dakota Broadband Board regarding the use of its broadband fiber network.
