Seattle, UW offering up 500 miles of fiber

An effort to offer private companies access to 500 miles of publicly owned fiber-optic lines in Seattle is almost done, according to Bill Schrier, the city’s chief technology officer.

The Gig U effort – involving the city and the University of Washington – should announce the availability of the public infrastucture in about two weeks, Schrier said during a Technology Alliance luncheon in Seattle.
