Oregon: City of Roseburg ties into the NoaNet regional fiber system
"A corridor targeted for economic growth in Roseburg will soon get a key technological link -- fiberoptic cable -- running its length. The city earlier this month approved a $60,000 grant toward the $386,000 cost of installing fiberoptics along Diamond Lake Boulevard. The extension, being paid for mostly by NoaNet Oregon, will run from Winchester Street to near Buckhorn Road, east of the city.
Dan Huff, interim city manager, said Roseburg extended a water and sewer system along Diamond Lake Boulevard in the early 1990s. The city's Economic Development Commission recognized that high-speed telecommunications would need to be added to the infrastructure mix, he said. 'It was obvious that corridor does not allow that kind of user to function out there,' he said. '... That corridor is a very big goal for the Economic Development Commission.'"
NoaNet (Northwest Open Access Network) is a collaborative effort of Bonneville Power and many of the municipal and cooperative utilities in the Pacific Northwest to provide fiber links between communities. posted by Al Bonnyman
