Fall of 2019, the Town, on behalf of the Fox Islands Broadband Task Force (FIBTF), issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) to obtain information about various business models to deploy a fiber-to-the-premise (FTTP) broadband solution that would serve the entire island community. The company chosen to work with the Town is Axiom Technologies of Machias. Read their winning proposal here.
Axiom will work with the FIBTF to explore and develop ideas for a viable business model to deploy affordable, reliable, broadband for the entire island. This exploratory process is funded in part through a grant and will help further the Town’s goal to pursue independent, affordable broadband to better serve our community’s business, education, telehealth, and entertainment needs.
