Profile of Eugene, Oregon's broadband initiative:  "As is often the case the project got started by the municipally owned electric and water utility, EWEB. .... The benefits to the city from this venture are significant. With the dark fiber model, they expect the leases from the dark fiber to cover operating expenses. They had originally estimated that bringing fiber downtown would allow many tech companies to expand and they were hoping the fiber would bring 215 new jobs with average salaries of $74,000. The early successes show that they should easily surpass that goal, and the benefit to the city from more tech jobs is immense." :: POTs and PANs
