DANBURY, Conn. -- Danbury residents can expect to receive a robocall from the city beginning today (Wednesday, April 13) asking them to answer six questions about receiving $15 a month fiber-optic Internet service, according to WLAD.com.
Mayor Mark Boughton proposed the idea of the cheaper service, in part, so all residents could receive Internet service. Before moving forward with the plan, city officials want to make sure residents are interested in receiving the service, according to WLAD.com. They are hoping at least half of the city's residents will take the time to respond, said WLAD.com.
If approved, the city would then work with a company to build and maintain the network, according to WLAD.com. Boughton said residents eventually could get service for free by having the system taper down over the years with residents paying $15 a month for five years, $5 a month for the next five years and then the service would be free, reported WLAD.com. First, residents need to express an interest and answer the questions on the survey, added WLAD.com.
