Carefully move forward on broadband

[Commentary] Thankfully, due to a push-start from the Economic Development Subcommittee, the Missoula (MT) City Council is prepared to take the first steps toward getting a broadband system in place here.

Council members are looking at establishing a task force whose aim will be to help guide the city through the process. The proposed network would be brought online in phases, ultimately linking to 50 different entities in Missoula. According to the feasibility study, it would cost $10.5 million over five years, although the total price of the overall plan is pegged at closer to $17 million.

As we move forward, let’s take pains to ensure that each step is also taken carefully, with due consideration given to all concerns.
