Craig Settles has just published a new book entitled “Fighting the Next Good Fight: Bringing true broadband to your community” for cities that are planning to deploy broadband networks. The book lays out the options for cities and identifies the mistakes they have made in the past. The goal of the book is to assist cities in creating effective, financially sustainable broadband networks including sections on how to overcome financial, organizational and political challenges. Private organizations that work with cities on their broadband plans should also read this book.
Craig has been a frequent contributor to MuniWireless and has worked with many cities to help them bring high-speed Internet access to residents and businesses.
