The Redding City Council will again consider an idea for a superfast fiber internet utility in Redding. Council member Adam McElvain floated the proposal during his campaign, and the Council heard some preliminary details on it during a meeting in May. McElvain says a public internet utility could bring speeds of up to 10 gigabytes to the downtown core of Redding, where he says Google already has a high speed fiber conduit running along the railroad tracks. He explains that this is something that only the public sector, like the Redding Electric Utility, can feasibly do. McElvain envisions high tech companies, hospitals, and government being among those who would benefit, but other members of the Council raised concerns about what it would cost the city to build the system. They requested that McElvain do more research and come back with a more detailed report, which he’ll present Tuesday night.
