On November 5th, citizens of Longmont will vote on a referendum determining whether to expedite building a Fiber to the Home (FTTH) network by issuing revenue bonds, a process that would speed up the build by several decades.  The network is being built by Longmont Power and Communications, a city-owned utility north of Denver, Colorado. The service provides symmetrical gigabit access at a $50/month rate and according to the local newspaper has already attracted customers and businesses to the city.
