Microsoft Pri0

Welcome to Microsoft Pri0: That's Microspeak for top priority, and that's the news and observations you'll find here from Seattle Times technology reporter Matt Day.

Help wanted: broadband builder

The city of Seattle is looking for private partners to help build a broadband network to deliver high-speed Internet access to every home, and it should find out which players, if any, are interested by July 7, the deadline for responding to today’s Request for Interest.

Seattle is aiming for a network that uses fiber optic to the premises, or FTTP, rather than Wi-Fi wireless technology chosen by cities like San Francisco and Philadelphia. A volunteer task force concluded that fiber optic is a better long-term solution, though it’s also more expensive.

Check out this report for a comparison of various approaches to citywide Internet access.
