David Olson on Community Fiber

David Olson, Director of the Cable Franchise Management Office, discusses open-access community fiber, and the City’s response to Google.

You’ll note the similarities between what we face now, with no fiber in Portland while Verizon customers in Washington County have it, and the situation with slow broadband rollouts a decade ago.
