We've had fiber to all facilities for 8-10 years, greatly reduced costs by getting away from leased phone lines, ability to put security cams in place, and other enhancements to city operations. We were very successful reaching our second goal as well. Over 300 businesses have fiber. DOE labs are located here and medical facilities are among those.
