Viriginia: Bristol's municipal FTTH system is meeting or beating it original goals

"Bristol Virginia Utilities' OptiNet business plan is meeting or exceeding expectations despite delays in starting up its cable and telephone services, according to the utility's telecommunications consultant."

"Doug Dawson of CCG Consulting, which has helped BVU with its telecommunications business plan since last year, said OptiNet has managed to exceed the number of customers in the plan that BVU's board approved for the period from June 30 to June 30, 2004."

"Operational expenses were also about $600,000 more than the $2.12 million BVU planned, and Dawson said that came from a combination of legal fees from the Charter federal court battle; lobbying for the revised state law this year that allowed BVU to offer cable television; and the cost of a State Corporation Commission rate study responding to Sprint's opposition to BVU's plan for telephone service."
