Published

BROADBAND BREAKFAST INSIGHT: We reported this news back in August, but it’s worth highlighting again with this new new piece on SiFi Networks’ project in Saratoga Springs, a city of 28,027 in upstate New York. Most notably, the article includes a link to the agreement between SiFi Networks and the city.

Saratoga Springs to lay fiber networks, from the Times Union, a newspaper coming a four-county area of upstate New York, including the cities of Troy, Schenectady and Saratoga Springs:

Over the summer city officials signed a long-term contract with SiFi Networks to design, install and maintain a fiber optic network, making it the first municipality in the state and one of only a handful in the nation to embrace the technology to provide residents and businesses with lightning-fast internet.

The 30-year agreement, explained Commissioner of Finance Michele Madigan will come at no cost to the city while also lowering the cost of being connected because multiple providers can hop on the network, giving consumers a choice.

“SiFi will interface with the providers,” Madigan said. “The more providers they have, the more competition it opens up.”
