Michigan: Battle Creek municipal fiber system to be on-line this winter

"Fiber-optic technology could be available in Battle Creek by the end of the year as the city's plan for "wiring" the community moves forward."

"The city started laying the 16 miles of underground pipes last year in downtown and the industrial park and airport area. The $1.47 million conduit was built as an incentive to technology companies to lay fiber optic cable in Battle Creek, Tsuchiyama said."

"Ultimately, he said, the goal is to draw business to the Cereal City. "

[The article is a little fuzzy on exactly who owns the fiber that's going into the city's new conduit system and who's installing it.]
