round 1 review goals of the state
Round #1 Review - Goals of the State
  • Goals of Broadband in Missouri:
    • 95% of Missourians should have affordable high speed broadband access within five years.
    • The network will be designed to connect every school district, university, courthouse, law enforcement center, correctional center, and state facility that does not currently have adequate bandwidth within five years.
    • The “last mile” will be carried by fiber wherever feasible, and a combination of suitable technologies including wireless and cable, everywhere else that it is needed statewide within five years.
    • The network will be open-access, meaning that it will be available for use by all service providers on an equal basis.
    • The state will not operate the network as a going concern except insofar as it provides services to state and government facilities, universities, schools and libraries, but will instead partner with others to operate and maintain the network and provide services to Missourians.
    • The network will bring choice to consumers and make it cost-effective to reach isolated or disadvantaged customers.
