Gig.U issues RFI details
Gig.U, which describes itself as a university community next-generation innovation project, says it has released an open letter that outlines its upcoming Request for Information (RFI) process. The RFI will be the first step in Gig.U’s efforts to accelerate the deployment of high-speed network services and applications in university communities. Gig.U says the letter, which was separately mailed to Internet service providers and other entities, describes its goals, principles, and underlying assumptions that will direct the project’s efforts.Gig.U expects its RFI process will generate proposals from private sector partners that will trigger a new generation of high-speed networking offerings for 32 of the nation's research universities and their surrounding communities. New additions from the previously named 29 universities are:California Institute of Technology.Florida State University.University of Arizona.Gig.U believes its members will lower their costs if they work together, as well as improve the business economics for the private sector entities interested in working with them. Gig.U asserts the goals of the RFI process are to:Promote the deployment of next-generation networks and services across member communities to stimulate economic development.Identify creative approaches to design, operate, and finance self-sustaining next-generation networks for member communities while evaluating the trade-offs between these different approaches.Gain an understanding of how differences between member communities influence the level of private sector interest in working with any individual community.Consider ways in which multiple project communities can work together beyond the RFI process to improve the private sector business case for next-generation networks.Following the release of the RFI, Gig.U will host a workshop on September 26 at the University of Chicago for interested private sector entities and other stakeholders. As previously reported, Gig.U is a group of 32 universities and communities across the country working to accelerate the deployment of high-speed networks to universities and their surrounding communities. The project, launched on July 27, is led by Blair Levin, Aspen Institute communications and society program fellow and former executive director of the National Broadband Plan; Elise Kohn, formerly a policy advisor at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC); and Sherry Gelfand, who served as special assistant to Levin within the Omnibus Broadband Taskforce at the FCC.
MCNC begins second phase rollout of Golden LEAF Rural Broadband Initiative in North Carolina
Round 2 of construction for the Golden LEAF Rural Broadband Initiative (GLRBI) in North Carolina began today with a virtual groundbreaking ceremony held in four locations. MCNC, the private, not-for-profit operator of the North Carolina Research and Education Network (NCREN) that oversees the projected, hosted the ceremonies the marked the latest phase of the broadband stimulus project.The GLRBI aims to improve the reach and capacity of the NCREN in northeastern, north central, western and south central North Carolina. The project received two rounds of funding from U.S. Department of Commerce's Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP), matched with funds from private donations and investments.MCNC received federal approval to begin GLRBI phase 2 construction in late June. The Round 2 project is 3X the size of MCNC's BTOP Round 1 project. Round 2 includes 1,200 miles of broadband infrastructure through 79 counties in North Carolina. Sixty-nine of these counties include areas that meet the federal definition of "underserved" for access to affordable broadband services. The total second phase project cost of $104 million was funded by two sources. The first was a federal BTOP grant of $75.75 million awarded in August 2010 through the NTIA. The BTOP investment was matched by $28.25 million in private donations, including a $24 million investment from the Golden LEAF Foundation. MCNC has awarded contracts for the Round 2 project to CommScope for fiber-optic cable and materials; Edwards Telecommunications, Fiber Technologies, and Globe Communications for construction and fiber installation; and Kimley-Horn & Associates for engineering design, project planning, and related services. All construction is to be complete by 2013.The high-definition virtual groundbreaking simulcast was hosted at Asheville-Buncombe Tech Community College, Elizabeth City State University, the North Carolina Research Campus in Kannapolis, and UNC Pembroke. The event leveraged the existing video capabilities of NCREN. Among the benefits of the GLRBI will be an improvement of such video capabilities and capacity for HD video use among NCREN users. "MCNC is excited to begin the second phase of building North Carolina's highway to the future," said Joe Freddoso, president and CEO of MCNC. "Today, we can link several sites via HD video for a one-time event. The GLRBI expansion, when complete, will allow us to host hundreds of these sessions simultaneously across the state. It will impact all facilities and institutions connected to NCREN. It will broaden the way teachers teach, students learn, doctors provide care, and for citizens at a local library searching to find a job."The total investment for both Round 1 and Round 2 of the broadband infrastructure build is $144 million and includes an investment of $8 million in funds from the MCNC endowment that was used as matching funds for the Round 1 project. MCNC estimates the expansion of NCREN will create or save 2,500 engineering, construction, and manufacturing jobs in the state.
CenturyLink to invest $20 million to improve, expand broadband in New Mexico
CenturyLink Inc. (NYSE:CTL), following its merger with Qwest Communications, has announced plans to invest at least $20 million to improve and expand broadband communications availability and increase connectivity speeds to consumers in New Mexico."This investment by CenturyLink to expand broadband services in New Mexico is an effective way for the company to introduce itself to the state," New Mexico Public Regulation Commission chairman Pat Lyons says. "CenturyLink is New Mexico's leading communications provider now that its merger with Qwest is complete. We look forward to the additional resources and opportunities that this increased Internet connectivity made possible by CenturyLink will provide the people of New Mexico.""As a result of CenturyLink's merger with Qwest, the combined company now has the financial strength, national breadth, and local depth to provide a compelling array of broadband products and high-bandwidth services in New Mexico," explains Valerie Dodd, vice president and general manager for CenturyLink in New Mexico.Dodd and her Albuquerque-based local operations team are studying the communities CenturyLink serves in the state to determine where to deploy the expanded broadband infrastructure that the new initiative will fund. CenturyLink will implement the expanded broadband program over the next several years.
