High Speed Fiber Network
Utility Service Contractors, a private contractor working on behalf of the Town of Wake Forest, recently began installing a high-speed fiber network to support the Town’s public safety efforts and critical administrative activities. CTC Technology & Energy is managing the $2.5 million installation which will initially interconnect 14 Town facilities before expanding to serve businesses and residential neighborhoods.
In 2016 Wake Forest selected CTC to develop a broadband feasibility study to include high-level design and cost estimates to connect Town facilities and other points of interest. As part of the study, CTC conducted a comprehensive needs assessment, examined the Town’s broadband market and services, and evaluated the potential role of existing Town assets in enabling broadband before delivering its findings in early 2017.
Extending from town hall, the current fiber network installation is the next step in implementing the CTC report.
