Utilities Seeks En'light'ened Response to Survey
about Community Interest in Fiber to the Home Service

Beginning next week, 5,000 randomly selected utility customers will have an easy way to give their opinion on whether the City of Palo Alto Utilities (CPAU) should expand its fiber optic "pipe" business. The special online survey, being handled by an independent research company, asks residents if they are satisfied with their current service providers, if they have a desire for "advanced" services, and what they think about CPAU entering into the residential telecommunications business. The information gathered from this Fiber to the Home survey, along with ongoing customer feedback and the results from the one-year Fiber to the Home Trial in the Community Center neighborhood, will help CPAU understand the citizens' service needs. This information will help CPAU develop a business case, and a recommendation to Council, regarding the best role for it to play in the future of telecommunications in Palo Alto.
