City of Madison, WI Selects CTC To Complete Cost–Benefit Analysis

The City of Madison, WI has selected CTC to develop a detailed business and strategic analysis to inform the City’s consideration of a potential citywide fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) network. The cost–benefit analysis will evaluate three primary approaches: an open network model, a City partnership with a private entity, and a City utility model. CTC’s engineers and analysts will review existing City infrastructure, including the Metropolitan Unified Fiber Network (MUFN), to to inform a system-level network design, FTTP cost estimates, business modeling, and financial analysis. This effort represents one step in the City’s compliance with Wisconsin state law, which requires any municipality that seeks to offer broadband services to conduct a cost–benefit analysis.
