Small town 25500 inhabitant is building open FTTH network

Apparently the city of Magog in Quebec as mandated a new nonprofit entity "Magog Technopole" to build an open FTTH network in the city. Giving 1Gbps to residents and 10Gbps to Businesses. The hope is that it will help to revitalise the city that in the past, lost about 4000 jobs in the Textile and Printing industries. The city, being close to Montreal and to the United States border is hoping to attract new companies in its new industrial center. Located close to an Hydroelectric Dam, its the perfect spot for companies that want to cool down their servers with fresh water from the Memphremagog Lake.

Interesting.
The solicitation of interest seems to be open now. Then the second quarter will be for bids.

I can see only very few companies being able to bid (who have the experience to partner with them).

It's a few years away. It's only on paper now.

I can already see the lawsuits.

After 2-billion dollars invested in R&D, Deployment, and salaries, CNOC members will fight to resell it for 15$

If Bell wants to resell my GPON service, I'm willing to talk.

Maybe so but profit is profit, after a set number of years it should open up i can see locking it for like 5 years after construction to give the building company time to earn back build out then allowing tpia access on it for a fair cost+15% markup P:)

Recovering the build costs takes closer to 10-15 years since most income during the early years simply goes toward paying capital and operating costs... particularly when you have early-adopter promos for $50/month 50/50 service for as long as you stay.

Chances of that really happening are close to 0.

It is cheap and easy to dream but hard and costly to actually design, build and operate a world-class network infrastructure.
