Illinois: City of Olney to provide broadband access to businesses

"Olney City Council voted to begin the process of possibly delivering high-speed Internet service to industrial-park businesses during its meeting on Monday."

"Olney City Manager Dave Berry said he and Richland County Development Corporation Executive Director Mary Heitzig have worked with a number of businesses in the industrial parks south along Ill. 130 that have a desire for high-speed Internet service. He said they met with Suscom [the local cable TV operator] and with prospective clients who would subscribe to the service and it is something that can be accomplished with grant funding."

"Berry said that Heitzig found a new grant program through Rural Development through which the city is eligible for up to $50,000 to go toward installing the cable for the connections. Berry said the city would then enter into a lease agreement with Suscom, which would manage the service."
