Eagle Fiber Internet Goals

Reliable internet connectivity is essential in the 21st century.  Just as electricity enabled the first industrial revolution, fiber optic infrastructure is the foundation for the digital revolution.  Residents in our city have been paying too much for mediocre access to the internet.  As Eagle’s Mayor, I have made it a key priority of the City to build and establish local control of this essential infrastructure.  The goals of the City for this project include the following:

  1. Increase access to affordable high-speed internet.
  2. Significantly increase the speed and reliability of internet access.
  3. Increase competition and give residents multiple options for ISPs on-demand in real-time.
  4. Build a state-of-the-art network that will improve economic development and foster innovation.
  5. Leverage the network to improve the services provided in the city including public safety, transportation, healthcare, education, emergency communications, and new services that will become possible with advanced network infrastructure.
