   In April 2021 , the City Board of Directors established a Broadband Advisory Committee to research various options as it relates to a possible city - sponsored , city - wide , fiber optic internet service .  The Committee’s role was to review various business models that other cities have used to provide such service; review service offering options; and ultimately make a recommendation to the City Board regarding the Committee’s findings .  The Committee interviewed the executive director from Clarksville Connected Utilities regarding their broadband utility; representatives from Hope , AR regarding their broadband initiative; and Mark Latham , previous city manager for Highland , Illinois , regarding his experience establishing a fiber - to - the - home service . The Committee also reviewed various business models for municipal operated internet services and a variety of service offerings .  The Committee decided that a feasibility study needed to be conducted by an outside third party .  In early August 2021 , the Board approved the Committee’s request to publish a Request for Proposals for the purposes of hiring a consultant to conduct a municipal broadband feasibility study .  After reviewing all 10 responses to the RFP , and interviewing the top 5 entities , the Committee recommended the City hire CCG Consulting to complete the feasibility study .  The contract with CCG Consulting was approved by the City Board in January 2022 .  The feasibility study was completed in June and was presented to the City Board on August 2 , 2022 .
