The Town of Frisco has released a Request for Proposals (RFP) for a broadband strategic plan that would address how to best serve the internet needs of Frisco residents and businesses and how public and private entities could work together towards a common goal of improving broadband capability in Frisco through the installation of a fiber network throughout Town.
The project scope would include a public process; inventory and mapping of current conditions in Frisco; an outline of the community impacts of broadband availability on commerce, quality of life, emergency services; suggested yearly budget to include phasing and potential future funding opportunities for broadband; various scenarios with associated costs that include all feasible public and/or private options for broadband implementation and ongoing service and sales; and opportunities and costs around providing more widely available free public Wi-Fi.
A virtual meeting for interested parties is scheduled for Tuesday, September 13, 2022 at 1:00 pm; attendance at the virtual meeting is not required in order to submit a proposal. Questions regarding the RFP are due on Friday, September 16, 2022 by 4:00pm, and responses to questions will be provided by 4:00 pm on Wednesday, September 21, 2022 by 4:00pm at FriscoRFP.com.
