Jon Humphrey

Description

Meeting Includes:
"Hands-on Help Time" from 6:30pm til 7pm, BLUG/LFNW & Linux News, Q&A, and a presentation by Jon Humphrey: "Bellingham Public Fiber Optic Network"

Jon's Presentation:
As other cities embrace high-speed fiber broadband, Bellingham is getting left far behind. Our city has underutilized public fiber resources and several local Internet Service Providers eager to deploy high speed broadband, like they have in Mount Vernon, yet this is held back by rules and regulations that have not kept pace with technology.
