Where is BPW Fiber today?

Holland BPW has spent tens of millions of dollars into their fiber network in the last couple decades. It goes well beyond the city limit into the surrounding townshps.

This is a key reason we want the Holland BPW to become a broadband utility.

In their 2015 Annual Report they have a great graphic showing how much fiber is already in place.

This is great public infrastructure, and will make rolling fiber out to everyone much easier than in other cities.


  1. Been looking forward to this for a long time! I hope it will be in my area soon!

  2. What was the reason for the roll out to the residential areas? Was residential broadband always the plan, or is it for business?

  3. Zach: the current network was built to support the power and water utilities, and has been expanded to provide connections to schools and large businesses. Because this network already exists, it should make rolling out residential service a lot quicker and easier.

  4. Is there a plan or a time frame for rolling out this for residential users. I am paying Comcast $75/month for High speed. I would think that revenue from 1000 homes @ $50/month [$600,000/year] would cover most of the cost of expanding this to homes.
