At our recent Informational Internet meeting we discussed the results of the feasibility study. At this meeting, Ben Fineman, President of the Michigan Broadband Cooperative, gave a powerpoint presentation and answered many questions of residents. (Ben can be reached at: http://firstname.lastname@example.org. To learn more about the co-op please click here: http://www.mbcoop.org)
Residents requested the powerpoint presentation and Home Value Study be posted to the website. SEE BELOW:
There is an existing study that compares 25Mb connected homes to those with fiber, and this shows a 7.1% increase. While this is not that same as going from NO broadband to fiber, it is a more defensible study.
If you have any further questions please contact Supervisor Peter Psarouthakis at email@example.com.
