Archived from 2001. Describes a potential startup company that facilitates the construction of broadband last mile infrastructure (Fiber/Wireless/Wireline) by local entities such as municipalities, utilities and local entrepreneurs. The local entities capitalize and operate the local infrastructure. Newco helps them plan, construct, deploy and operate the infrastructure, creating an economy of scale for distributed infrastructure construction and deployment. Newco itself does not capitalize, own or operate the local infrastructure but does generate upfront and recurring revenue, thus making it suitable for traditional VC investment that supports a strong return on investment with an appropriate time horizon.
