Mike Marcellin, senior vice president of NetApp, talks about the work that US Ignite is doing in 31 communities across the country to encourage development of next-generation broadband networks and applications that run on them. The nonprofit is working in the areas of manufacturing, education, energy, healthcare and others and collaborating with developers who are creating innovative applications that need high-speed broadband networks to run effectively and efficiently.
Developing relationships with elected officials and city government staff is critical to any muni network marketing plan, both locally and at the state level. For many communities, public networks are bipartisan efforts. At the state level, however, getting both sides of the aisle to come together behind these networks produces mixed results.
The city of Sandy Oregon has a very stellar relationship between City staff, elected officials and constituents. City IT Director Joe Knapp and Sandy Council President Jeremy Peitzold tell us what works for them while offering other communities some perspectives to consider.
how do city staff and city council form consensus defining the goals, getting funding and planning marketing;
everybody wants the network built in their area first, and but political tensions can build because somebody has to be last;
what do you do when one or two opponents of the network are one city council;
is public networks’ role in economic development the key to legislative good will.

Sometimes the obvious solution to a broadband challenge is right there in front of a community. Like money. Waverly, IA realized that not just one but THREE local banks held the key to the city's fundraising success. While some communities are stressing out over funding sources, financial institutions could be the linchpin that get many public networks off the ground.
Who better than local banks and credit unions are served by the economic impact of broadband? New employers moving in, existing companies hiring, increasing property values, people staying in town - when economies thrive, banks prosper. Darrel Wenzel, General Manager of Waverly Utilities, explains how their financial institutions came to be partners in the city's broadband development. He also gives tips to communities that see this strategy potentially playing out well for their constituents.
Iowa is a hub of excitement these days, with Waverly being the third gigabit city in the state to move forward. The city is hot on the trail of high-speed Internet, cable and phone services for both residents and businesses. Waverly Utilities and city officials are pleased that general taxpayers and ratepayers are not at risk as revenue bonds have been secured and will be paid back by broadband subscribers.
