Collaboration among multiple entities is the hallmark of new fiber-to-the-premises initiatives across the country, particularly because federal and state grant programs encourage such collaboration. This webinar will offer insight into the most common of these partnership models: one in which an entity with infrastructure expertise (such as a city or electric utility) builds and maintains the fiber infrastructure, while another entity (this one with operations and service expertise) lights and operates the network. Join this webinar to learn the features of this model and how it is replicating itself across the country, among both public and private entities.

The webinar will be presented by Joanne Hovis, president of CTC Technology & Energy, and author of multiple publications on broadband public-private partnerships.
