2019 Strategy Update: Kelly Lewis, Lewis Strategic and Kevin Dellicker, Dellicker Strategies

Repeat what worked so strongly in 2017:

1. Start Broadband Cost-Survey by May 15, 2019, a confidential, voluntary cost-survey of participating broadband buyers. In 2017 44-broadband buyers participated in the confidential cost-survey. Aggregated, the cost-survey revealed an average price of $24.00/Mbps. The 2019 broadband cost-survey will start May 2019 and collect surveys for 30-days. Like 2017, the results for each organization remain confidential; only the aggregated results will be reported at the July 23, 2019 Monroe 5G Gigabit meeting.

2. Voluntary Broadband RFP - In 2017, 42-organizations participated. The 2017 RFP dropped broadband prices as much as 60%. The 2019 RFP broadband RFP will start in July 2019 and conclude in 90-days. Like 2017, the results for each organization remain confidential, only the aggregated results will be reported at the October 31, 2019 Monroe 5g Gigabit meeting. (finalizing funding for RFP)

We believe the 2019 Broadband RFP could reduce broadband prices another 60%. We believe a 2019 RFP will attract a 3rd or 4th broadband provider into Monroe County.

3. Monroe 5G Aggregation Project - In summer 2019, the Monroe 5G Aggregation Project will launch a campaign seeking individual support from residents and businesses for 5G investment in Monroe County, with the goal of jump-starting 5G in Monroe County.

4. Monroe 5G Campaign - commencing May 2019, this group shall lead support-letter and advocacy campaign to make sure rural boroughs and townships are specifically included in any statewide 5G legislation.

5. Lewis Strategic will help Monroe identify and map all of the wireless dead-zones in the County, and work with wireless industry to eliminate and shrink dead-zones. We’ll use a good off-the-shelf technology to pinpoint dead-zones on a map of Monroe County, like Planning Commission GIS mapping.

9:30 a.m. Roundtable Discussion

10:00 a.m. Adjournment & Networking

RSVP no later than May 28, 2019
