Broadband Master Planning: A Holistic Approach to Meeting Broadband Goals
By defining goals, gathering data and asking the right questions, communities can develop broadband master plans that lay the groundwork for high-speed networks.
Solutions to having good, ubiquitous broadband are very different for each community. Some communities do not have enough broadband providers; others have plenty of providers but pockets of areas that are underserved; still others have so many providers that they are concerned about running out of rights of way, particularly as fiber for 5G and small cells densifies.
This article discusses a process that can help address all these circumstances: broadband master planning. Some ideas might not seem new, but pulling them together into one process might be a solution to the fiber and broadband challenges communities face.
