    Ryan Johnston: Are communities listed on the Next Century Cities website supposed to make connectivity affordable? Ann Arbor is listed on the website. When I asked about the cost to connect to a backhaul, I was told: It is $105,000.00 one-time fee per pair. (one time entry fee) $10,500 annually per pair

    Ron, you can view the principles that our members agree to when they sign up for membership at https://nextcenturycities.org/join-our-movement/#advocating-for-good-connectivity-policy

    Communities who join us are working towards universal, high-speed, affordable broadband for their residents, but we do not prescribe how they are to achieve that. We also don’t have Industry funders or members, and so we don’t have the resources or connections to help our members negotiate prices for connections with providers.
