Public partnership to use the fiber optic capabilities of the individual member for the benefit of the partners and the Alpena community.
Alpena County, City of Alpena, Alpena Public Schools, Alpena Community College and Alpena Regional Medical Center are founding members. Since the inception fo the cosortium thirteen members representing Federal and State entities and nonprofit organizations have joined.
By combining individual resources it provides the community with a broader fiber optic coverage and capability, provides redundancy capabilities for member and significatly reduces any one member's cost to procure expanded fiber optic capabilities.
Cost Savings: No direct savings to the County. Consortium provides important links for partners which allow them to reduce ISP fees.
Due to delay in signing of agreements with State and Federal agencies the project moved slower than anticipated.
