Muni Fiber Palo Alto – How and Why
July 9, 2019 at 7PM
Mitchell Park Community Center, 3700 Middlefield Road, Palo Alto, CA
El Palo Alto Room West
All are welcome to join a discussion on July 9th about municipal broadband and the implications for Palo Alto. Palo Alto has long considered the potential of a publicly owned fiber-optic network, which would offer better connectivity to residents at competitive rates, and local support is growing. Christopher Mitchell, Director of the Community Broadband Networks program at the Institute for Local Self-Reliance, will give a short presentation about municipal broadband projects around the nation and what lessons are relevant for Palo Alto. A screening of the short documentary Do Not Pass Go, which explores the potential of community owned networks to improve connectivity, will follow. There will be ample time reserved for Q&A at the end of the session.
