North Florida Broadband Alliance Update

NFBA logoThe $30 million NFBA Broadband Grant Project continues to move ahead to enable high-speed connectivity for our 14-county region, which includes Lake City.

The NFBA will have a core broadband network consisting of 93 towers throughout the 14-county region and is expected to be fully operational by February 2012.

The NFBA Operations Committee met early this week to discuss the Business Plan with emphasis on “Beta” Customers, Revenue Projections, and Pricing Models.

During the next NFBA meeting in early June, the recommendations of the OPS Committee will be presented to the Board.
