California: Truckee Donner PUD changes FTTH financing strategies

"The Truckee Donner Public Utility District has switched gears a bit in its financing for the broadband business. After terminating its contract with underwriter Friedman, Luzzatto and Company in mid-August, the utility signed a contract last week with Austin, Texas-based Barton Creek. Barton Creek - a smaller company with experience in stadium bonds, private and start-up businesses - has agreed to locate potential bond buyers for the estimated $15 million project."

The article discusses the financing issues then mentions that the 3 bidders on the FTTH (fiber to the home) transport electronics for the project were Optical Solutions, Wave7 Optics, and Alcatel.
