Ammon’s Fiber to the Home Program
Another fascinating podcast from Community Broadband Networks:
Ammon, Idaho, continues to quietly build a future-looking open access fiber network. Though the City won’t be providing services directly to subscribers, the network it is building and the model it has created could revolutionize public safety.
There are two podcasts and more in the Ammon story. The first podcast, Episode 86, is from Feb. 2014. More recently, in Episode 173 (Oct. 2015) Chris talks with Ammon City Technology Director Bruce Patterson and Systems Network Administrator Ty Ashcraft about how this unique network provides gigabit to home, access to a wide range of ISPs and services, and facilitates the needs of first responders and City services. Here’s that latest version.
