Community Broadband Bits 4 – Kevin Kryzda, CIO of Martin County, Florida

| Written by Christopher | No Comments | Updated on Jul 17, 2012 The content that follows was originally published on the Institute for Local Self-Reliance website at https://ilsr.org/community-broadband-bits-4-kevin-kryzda-cio-of-martin-county-florida/

The fourth episode of Community Broadband Bits features Kevin Kryzda from Martin County, Florida. We discuss their county-owned network that is saving millions of dollars for the community — as detailed in our case study published last month.

Activists that want to encourage publicly owned broadband in their communities should familiarize themselves with the cost savings and advantages from Martin County’s approach. Though Martin County is serving schools, libraries, and public safety, it does not serve residents and businesses with services directly. However, this could be the first step for other communities before they do offer such services to everyone.
