recommends approval of
an amendment to
the existing agreement with Atlantic.net to provide an additional 8 MB of
wholesale internet bandwidth for the city’s Internet
Service Provider division of the Information Technology Department.
City has an agreement in force with Atlantic.net to provide 8 MB of wholesale
internet bandwidth for use by the City’s internet customers. The agreement was signed
on 12/13/2004 as
Resolution # 7259. The number of broadband customers using the service has increased in the past 16 months, and additional bandwidth is required. Atlantic.net provided an optional price to increase the bandwidth at any time during the period the contract is in force [3 years from date of signing].
1. Approve the Resolution, or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
The cost of adding an additional 8 MB of bandwidth is $950.00 per month. Funds are available in the ISP professional services budget. Since the original contract was signed, an additional 10.5 MB of bandwidth has been purchased by customers using the ISP network. This additional bandwidth has resulted in an increase in the City’s ISP revenue of $4,700 per month.
