Description:

Explore sustainable models of fiber deployments using a public-private partnership. Using the backdrop of the city of Salisbury, North Carolina’s failing system, and the system take-over by Hotwire, we will discuss the options presented to the city; the sustainable deal made between Hotwire and the city; and how this arrangement can inform sustainable P3 models for greenfield fiber deployments. Hear the story of Salisbury, North Carolina, the reasons it chose to fund a fiber deployment, its failure points, and how the Hotwire P3 model patched holes and created an environment for the community to truly benefit from a publicly funded fiber system.
