Duluth hires EntryPoint to look at fiber open access models

Duluth News Tribune reports…

City officials have retained the services of the same firm its neighbor used to explore its options as Superior contemplates a massive investment in broadband technology .

The Duluth Economic Development Authority voted Wednesday to spend up to $65,000 to have EntryPoint LLC, based in Salt Lake City, Utah, advise it on the prospects for a publicly owned fiber-optic system.

Chris Fleege, director of Duluth’s planning and economic development department, explained that the city is considering the possibility of building an open-access broadband system.
