US Gigabit fibre deployment specialist Calix announced that ten new municipal broadband providers have partnered with the company to support their rollouts. The company said that municipalities and municipality-owned utilities are recognising the importance of fibre-based Giogabit services for economic viability. One such example is Kentucky’s Owensboro Municipal Utilities (OMU), which, after over 20 years offering broadband, is starting an FttH pilot with more than 500 homes, including a Gigabit broadband option powered by the Calix E7-2 Ethernet Services Access Platform (ESAP) and 844G GigaCenters. 

The other nine municipalities are Masschusetts-based Concord Municipal Light Plant (CMLP), Holyoke Gas & Electric (HG&E), Shrewsbury Electric and Cable Operations (Selco) and Taunton Municipal Lighting Plant (TMLP Online), Tennesee’s Erwin Utilities, North Carolina’s Fibrant, Wisconsin’s Sun Prairie Utilities, Iowa’s Waverly Utilities, and the city of Hudson, Ohio. Including the new locations, Calix is partnering 40 community-owned networks across the US.
