In Indiana, Auburn Built Fiber Network Incrementally - Community Broadband Bits Episode 77 | community broadband networks | The Gazette Citizen Journalism | Scoop.it

When a major employer in Auburn, a town of 13,000 in northeast Indiana, told the local government that it would have to move jobs to a different location unless it had improved Internet access, the local government first encouraged it to work with the telephone company. But when that telephone company, headquartered far from Auburn, refused to meet local needs, the town formed Auburn Essential Utilities and extended city fiber to the business.

 

Chris Schweitzer, Director of Auburn Essential Services, joins us for episode 77 of the Community Broadband Bits podcast. We discuss how Auburn was prepared for that moment and how it expanded the network in future years to now offer services on a citywide basis.

 

Listen to the show to learn more about Auburn, including how they have structured the project financially. See all of our coverage of AES here.
