Strategy is More Important than Feasibility

Municipalities considering a municipal broadband project should start with Strategy and not Feasibility.

 

Today’s feasibility studies tend to be lopsidedly tactical.  They tend to do hand-waving toward strategic issues and then dive heavily into tactical matters like:

     1) Assessment of the local market

     2) Network requirements

     3) Network design

     4) Cost estimates

     5) Financial projections

 

It is possible to do an excellent job doing things right (Tactics) like building a network that is functional and still do the wrong thing (Strategy) like building a network that never gets broad adoption.  A feasibility study which leads a city to do things right but not to do the right things will lead to a network that is not evolvable in the rapidly changing future.

Municipalities thinking about municipal broadband should focus on the unique value municipal broadband can provide that traditional broadband incumbents won’t or can’t provide.  EntryPoint's answer to the question of value from municipal broadband has been to focus on the customer and give them the solutions they seek by giving residents robust infrastructure and an open marketplace for services.
