Sure, everyone knows Chattanooga's public utility-owned rocks. But 11 years before EPB launched Chattanooga to fame, Springfield, MO was way ahead of the curve with its Springnet fiber network. Their Manager of Network Architecture/Support shares a lot of valuable knowledge and insights for communities that want their public utilities to get into the act.
Todd Christell gives an overview of Springnet's successes, including the introduction of a 1-gig service, and details on how they continue to capture new opportunities while fending off various challenges. He also discusses progress public utilities in general are making in broadband, and possible reasons private utilities continue to shun offering this service.
Christell reveals a novel way Springnet maintains its marketing edge - teenagers. He brought teens into the earlier planning process and took their input very seriously because, "they are the future. They understand this stuff better than we old folks do." Springnet widend its youth lens by teaming with 1Million Cups, Mid-America Technology Alliance and its City2City Connecting Gigabit Cities Hackathon to reach young entrepreneurs. Communities need to listen carefully to this because it's hard to argue with success.
Across the U.S. an increasing number of public-owned electric and other utilities are building or planning to build highspeed Internet access networks. In many ways these entities are well suited for the task. Is yours?
Curtis Dean, Broadband Services Coordinator for the Iowa Association of Municipal Utilities joins us to discuss why public utilities are making a difference in the drive for faster, better networks. Dean, who was part of a team that built a successful public utility network in 2001, offers listeners a lot of valuable advice.
We explore critical issues that help ensure a public utility leads an effective broadband initiative, including:
* determining what your public utility must do to effectively launch a broadband network; * addressing challenges and tapping the benefits utilities can deliver with broadband services; * managing time and monetary costs of operating a network infrastructure; and * effectively marketing the services after launching a network.
Don't miss Craig Settles' workshop in Ottumwa, IA that will tackle these and other issues.

Bobby Baker's practice focus is on providing strategic and regulatory advice to private companies and local governments, with an emphasis on energy, transportation and technology issues. In addition, Mr. Baker handles appellate and mediation matters.
Mr. Baker was first elected to the Public Service Commission in 1992 and was the first Republican to win a statewide election for a Georgia constitutional office since Reconstruction. As Commissioner, Mr. Baker worked aggressively to develop competitive markets for utility and technology services, and to reduce the regulatory burden on businesses. He was elected to a third six-year term in November 2004, but did not seek re-election in 2010, deciding instead to return to private practice.
Mr. Baker grew up in DeKalb County and attended DeKalb County public schools. He graduated from Oglethorpe University with honors and received his law degree from the University of Georgia. After law school, Mr. Baker joined the Southeastern Legal Foundation, a regional conservative public interest law firm and then practiced with a private law firm in Gwinnett County. Mr. Baker has been recognized on numerous occasions by both Georgia Trend Magazine and the Atlanta Business Chronicle as one of the city and state's most influential leaders. He has served on the board of directors for the Georgia Center for Advanced Telecommunications Technology (GCATT) and as Vice-Chairman of the Gwinnett County Planning Commission (1990-1994). He also is the recipient of the Talmage Award from Oglethorpe University in honor of his distinguished professional career in public service.
