Communities around the country are looking for ways to unlock the value of their fiber currency. In some communities, the destination may be a community-owned broadband utility. However, for many, the goals revolve around creating smart communication systems to drive broader community goals in education and economic development, or enhancing citizen services and experience.
Whatever their path, combining physical assets (utilities, fiber optic cables and conduits) with future-proofed public policy can enhance operations, expand services, create new revenue streams, and save money. Whatever the vision and course of action you select, the benefits can be significant and life-changing for your constituents.

HR Green is your ideal partner to optimize your approach and navigate through all facets of a project life-cycle or daily operations of a department.
