Salem city wide fiber optic broadband deal worth $35 million

SiFi Networks

To allow its citizens to reap the benefits of a 100% fiber optic internet, the city of Salem, MA, signed a contract attracting over $35 million of private investment to create a citywide, fully fiber-based broadband network. The network will be built by fiber infrastructure developer, SiFi Networks and its construction partners. The project will be privately funded by SiFi Networks, with no taxpayer subsidy. With projects like this, the company will transform the US broadband model by operating citywide networks that can be used by multiple service providers, mobile carriers and even the municipality itself. SiFi Networks currently has agreements with cities in six different states to fund, build and operate fiber optic networks. The company has an initial $450 million of capital committed for the coming months with access to an unlimited pool of infrastructure capital to roll out the strategy to hundreds of cities in the coming years. A recent study by the University of Tennessee suggests that competitive fiber networks stimulate financial growth and deliver substantial choice for consumers, with 40% of all jobs created in Hamilton County during the study period attributed to fiber infrastructure. Better connectivity facilitates access to remote learning platforms, e-health applications and home-working, something that has proven crucial during the global pandemic. Faster broadband will also incentivize business, stimulate the city’s economy and support the creation of new jobs — leading to new revenue streams and increased average income levels. Internet Service Providers (ISPs) will also benefit from a shared network because they can run their services on state-of-the-art fiber without the expense of having to build and maintain their own infrastructure. “We’re excited that SiFi and their team will be starting construction on their high-speed fiber network this spring,” said Salem Mayor, Kim Driscoll. “Having a high-speed fiber internet alternative can improve the quality of life for residents, spur greater economic growth and facilitate the installation of smart city technologies. Enhancing access and options for high-speed internet is especially essential during our response and recovery from COVID-19, as we strive to close the digital divide, help more residents access vital online services for work, education and family connections, and simply provide greater choices for our residents and businesses.” Unlike in most European and Asian countries, open access broadband is not common in the US, where the exclusive ownership of broadband networks led to the creation of monopolies that dominate the telecommunications market, inflating prices and depriving consumers of choice. To overcome these issues, the City of Salem selected SiFi Networks to build a privately-funded, independently-operated fiber network. This will guarantee unprecedented broadband quality for all — regardless of average income levels or demographics — and realize what SiFi Networks calls a FiberCity®. In 2019, SiFi Networks began constructing the citywide network in Fullerton, CA, enabling citizens with fast fiber broadband speeds, a greater choice of internet service providers, and the possibility to implement smart city applications such as AI-based traffic control, environmental monitoring, smart lighting and more. Ben Bawtree-Jobson, CEO of SiFi Networks, explained that these benefits will extend to the whole community: “Traditionally, service providers who are also infrastructure providers look for a quick return on investment, so they tend to limit the construction of fiber networks to areas with a higher density of wealthy consumers. “This has exacerbated the country’s staggering digital divide. SiFi Networks has a different business model. We are interested in long-term investments, so we build citywide. We believe that excellent connectivity helps level the playing field.” “SiFi Networks has already identified more than 200 cities that could become FiberCities® in the future and bring fiber to over ten million households across the US,” said Bawtree-Jobson. “We are excited about changing America’s telecommunications landscape and eliminating the digital divide wherever we build our FiberCities®.” For more information on the benefits offered by FiberCities®, visit https://sifinetworks.com.

New research: What do the UK's employees really want?

Futureheads

New research reveals what employees really want as UK job market rebounds - only 6% want to be fully based at home, 66% want flexible working and NOT unlimited holiday (12%) whilst only 16% believe their present work has purpose, despite valuing this as a priority According to official data from The Office of National Statistics (ONS), UK employers began hiring again in March with data showing the strongest rebound in permanent hiring for six years. As employers ramp up their searches, insightful new data from digital recruitment agency Futureheads suggests the criteria employees are looking for from new job roles - particularly in the tech sector - may look different to expectations in the post-pandemic world. Contrary to expectation, only 6% of workers want to be fully based at home, with the majority (68%) seeking a combination of work and home. Four out of five (81%) want to return to the office at least half the time, suggesting that workers are missing the benefits of being in a shared space. It seems that the unprecedented increase in home-working caused by the pandemic, rather than leading to a permanent shift, has instead driven a reflex to seek greater flexibility in work location. By far the biggest priority identified was flexible working, with 66% choosing this as appealing, whereas perks like unlimited holiday were listed as important by just 12% of respondents. Only 16% of those surveyed by Futureheads believed their work made a difference and had purpose, however more than a quarter (27%) saw the company’s mission being positive to society as a high priority, suggesting employers need to shape up to appeal to prospective and current employees. Said Be Kaler Pilgrim of Futureheads: “We wanted to run this research to find out more about the people behind the jobs in the UK tech sector, what makes them tick and whether their expectations have changed post-pandemic. We often see headlines about the tech sector and how it’s growing in the UK - but what motivates the people that move it forwards? The results of this survey are interesting to see and should help employers shape what they need to do to attract the best candidates when they’re looking to hire.” As lockdown restrictions ease, the Futureheads research suggests a potential boom in job-hopping, as more than half stated the pandemic had stopped them looking, but 30% have started looking since, with the potential for this number to grow as job security increases. Within this increasingly competitive market, employers will need to up their game to retain existing staff and appeal to desirable candidates.

To demystify menopause Gennev created the first-of-its kind Menopause NOW Report with 120,000 women who shared information about their lives and health over the past year. The report offers unparalleled insight into how women are experiencing menopause, with findings that show: 70% of women reported putting off preventative health appointments in the past year because of the pandemic 49% reported using telehealth for menopause care 92% reported more stress on top of menopause-related anxiety in the past year Founded and led by women, Gennev is a Seattle-based digital health platform that offers holistic and comprehensive support for women in all stages of menopause. They offer women a virtual clinic with OBGYNs and health coaches on staff, in addition to educational services, community, and wellness products. The results of this year's Menopause NOW report demonstrate women’s need for more comprehensive support from specialized doctors, health coaches, and their fellow women – services all provided by Gennev.
