City officials have been developing a “Request for Qualifications” from companies to build the network — at speeds of at least 10-100 gigabits per second — for the last nine months, at the direction of Mayor Ashley Swearengin.
“The City of Fresno recognizes the importance of ‘future proofing’ our community with affordable, ultrahigh speed tech infrastructure to support our entrepreneurs and residents,” said Mayor Swearengin in a statement. “The ability to partner with major providers and ensure the delivery of next generation broadband access will not only make communication more convenient for everyone, it will make our city stronger.”
The deadline for businesses to submit a letter of interest to respond to the City’s RFQ is Nov. 14, and all RFQ responses are due by Nov. 30.
