Community Broadband RFP

The window to submit a proposal to Los Alamos County's RFP to Design, Build, and Operate a Community Broadband Network closed on September 21, 2023. The county team is now reviewing the submitted proposals. Once one is selected and an agreement finalized, the county will request the council award a contract. This may occur in early 2024.

Broadband 101:

Vocabulary we often use to talk about broadband includes "last mile" and "middle mile." Last mile simply refers to the internet cables (copper, coax cable, or fiber optic) coming from the street into your home. Middle mile, for Los Alamos, refers to the internet feed coming into the County from the outside. Progress is slow, but daily work on these two items is resulting in steady movement forward. Funding opportunities don't always pan out and take a while to move through their own due process. At some point in the future, the county will have made some decisions related to options on how to proceed with broadband related projects. Once those decisions have been made, project plans will be communicated here, so everyone can follow the timeline progress.
