Seattle has issued an Request for Information for a large municipal fiber to the home/business build out. Requirements are sparse other than a minimum speed of 25Mbs with easy scalability to 100Mbs, 100% citywide coverage, and a target completion date of 2015.
This is the first big US municipality with such an RFI. Seattle has a broadband penetration rate well above the national average.
