Broadband Feasibility Study

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.
