Utilities >

As utilities require increased investment in fiber networks to support internal operational and grid management requirements, a new model has emerged that allows utilities to transform a traditional cost into a revenue generating asset that also supports the overall wellbeing of the communities they serve. 

The “Utility Lease Model” lowers costs and accelerates the timeline for a qualified broadband service provider to deliver Gigabit broadband services. This structure, first introduced in Huntsville, AL where Google Fiber is leasing access to Huntsville Utilities fiber network, reduces the financial risk of building and maintaining fiber networks – to the benefit of a city, community, and region.
