Tuesday, June 5, was a big night for the broadband project. City Council authorized a contract award for network design and engineering services to Nokia.
What does this mean for the project? This means that over the next several months, Nokia, with guidance from city staff, will be developing a network design to run fiber past every home and business in the City of Loveland.
