BANGOR- City officials announced that Bangor is another step closer to citywide broadband.
Last month, city officials presented a draft plan to make broadband readily available to the public.
However, in that time Mission Broadband, the city’s hired consultant, realized the data collected for the plan through a survey from earlier in the year, needs to be updated because of the pandemic.
With that, Mission Broadband created an additional social distancing broadband impact survey for the public.
“Really the next piece of work for us is to do a high level desktop engineering. Which is to say, if this is something the city wishes to continue to purse, then we are now going to start the early stages of developing what can become a RFP,” Economic Development Director Tanya Emery said.
She added that the RFP, also known as a request for proposal, will be issued during the winter.
