We would like to thank everyone who participated in our focus groups and online survey. We collected 637 completed surveys and held three focus group meetings. The results will be aggregated in a report and presented to the City Council in the near future. The report will also be posted on the City website. Thanks again for your support and participation.
CABLE FRANCHISE RENEWAL SUMMARY
The City has a 15 year non-exclusive Cable Franchise Agreement with Wave Broadband, which expires in 2017.
The renewal process requires a review of past performance, an assessment of community wants and needs, and a review of the operator's technical system. Once these are completed, the City will negotiate a renewal of the franchise agreement. The entire process may take up to 36 months.
The desired outcome is a new franchise that can contribute positively to the changing economic, technological, and cultural conditions of Port Angeles.
