Invitation to Submit Expression of Interest toward Development of Broadband Fibre Optic Network

The Town of Sundre is seeking private investors interested in deploying a fibre optic network within Town limits to service residents and businesses. Since 2015, the Town of Sundre has undertaken extensive research into the viability of such a project. Based on third party demand projections, up to 60% of residents would be interested in registering with a broadband communications provider within two years of deployment. For information on the research that has been conducted to date, please visit: www.sundrebroadband.com

Including the cost of the dark fibre and the electronics required to operate the network, the cost to deploy a primarily aerial network (vs. buried) has been estimated at between $2.75 million and $3.3 million. 

Parties interested in deploying a network within Sundre should submit an Expression of Interest no later than May 1, 2018. We ask that the Expression of Interest include a realistic anticipated timeline for deployment, and that any mitigating caveats or requirements be clearly identified. 

With increasing industry and residential development, the opportunity to invest in Sundre is sound. 

Please submit all Expressions of Interest to jon.a@sundre.com
