Staff recommends approving a resolution to amend the current Data Transport Service Agreement form used as the contract to provide Data Transport Services, Leased Fiber Service, and Internet T-1 Service.
The amended Data Transport Service Agreement will add Section 10D to provide for reimbursement to the City for installation costs if the customer cancels the agreement before the City has received revenue equaling the City’s investment in the installation of the fiber optic services. The customer will receive credit for the months the agreement has been in place, and will reimburse the City for the remainder of the installation cost. Additionally, Paragraph 3C will be changed to allow the City to provide ongoing service on a single strand of fiber instead of a pair of fiber. Due to technology improvements over the last several years, the City will be able to provide the same level of service on a single strand, and also be able to expand capacity of the network.
1. Adopt a resolution amending the Data Transport Service Agreement form; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
The change to the DTS agreement form will allow the City to take advantage of current technology which allows the same level of service that formerly required two strands, on single strands of fiber. This will increase the City’s capacity at a very low cost. The agreement will also allow the City to recover costs for installation of the customer’s fiber optic services in the event the contract is terminated before installation costs have been recovered.
