Presque Isle, MI, August 30, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- The Presque Isle Township Broadband Internet Committee (PITBIC) held an open meeting for all Township residents last Wednesday to allow Frontier Communications to make a presentation regarding a possible expansion of their Internet services to our area. There is now a very high chance that true high-speed Internet will finally come to our area. The meeting was a standing room only event.
Chuck Austin, Chairman of PITBIC, said, "This we believe is the first public/private partnership in Michigan that appears to be on the cusp of satisfying the need for true Internet services to our rural residents. We are close to achieving our goal and just need our residents to show their full support to reach our goal of realworld Internet." The committee has been working for two and half years now and has had the full support of the Township in this effort. Support for residential and commercial customers in the Township is now achievable.
The last phase of the project is to get the names and addresses of all those residents, both full-time and part-time so that services can be coordinated as well as possible to everyone in the Township and adjacent areas. PITBIC needs to be sure that any build out of services reaches as many interested residents as possible. The input of residents is critical as Frontier plans the system.
They ask that the residents who have not already signed up to express their interest in high-speed Internet go the website so you can be added to the list PITBIC is submitting to Frontier. Please go to www.PresqueIsleInternet.com and click on the contact page to submit your information. This is not a commitment to buy, but an expression of interest only.
If there is sufficient support for the project from both residential and commercial customers then PITBIC is very certain that by this time next year a build-out can be complete. Please support this effort by signing up today.
