MFE building fiber for Ramsey County

Minnesota Fiber Exchange (MFE) was featured in the Pioneer Press this weekend for their work with Ramsey County building two fiber optic networks throughout the county. One will be reserved exclusively for county traffic; the second will be owned by MFE, who plans to lease fiber to intermediaries who will provide broadband service to end customers.

It’s an innovative and practical approach to building fiber that support public and private growth, in part because it incorporates public and private partners in the planning, deployment and management of the network.

CTAC founder Bill Coleman is excited to be on the executive team at MFE. They have been working with Ramsey County to finalize the project and hope to begin construction in spring of 2013.
