Florida: Homestead starts work on its' municipal fiber network

"Homestead took two giant strides this week, beginning a fiber optic communications network and signing an operator for its foreign trade zone -both which could boost its economy via technology."

"The 11-mile fiber optic ring will wire the city for broadband and lure businesses, said City Councilman Jeff Porter, chair of the Economic Development Committee. 'As always, our goal is for more businesses to relocate to Homestead,' he said. 'This is a big step toward achieving that goal.'"

"Officials on Tuesday celebrated launching work on the ring that will link residents and the city's industrial park, Homestead Park of Commerce. Completion is expected in three months."

"Homestead-based Latam Smartpark, under principal Roman Martinez, is partnering with the city to market and manage the fiber-optic ring and offer high-speed telecommunications products. Already the company expects to wire 700 homes in the KeysGate community."
