California: "McKibben Consulting to oversee $26.5 million wireless and FTTH project in Lompoc"

"The City of Lompoc, California, has appointed McKibben Consulting as the Project Management Team to build a city-owned utility providing a wide array of high-tech broadband services. Upon completion of the $26.5 million project, the city will provide high-speed Internet, traditional telephone and video and audio entertainment services to its residents, businesses and government. McKibben, under a separate contract with the City, completed a Broadband Services Feasibility Study in December 2003. The report defined the types of broadband services needed in Lompoc, the type of technology best suited to the community, a conceptual system design for potential services and the estimated cost, staffing requirements and possible partnerships. McKibben recommended a hybrid wireless and fiber-to-the-home system as a result of its study."

McKibben's report makes interesting reading and is worth the download.
