The article reports that New York municipal government has finally opened the door to municipal broadband. In June 2006, the city's Economic Development Corp. (EDC) said it would hire a consultant to study whether it makes sense for New York to embark on a high-speed Internet effort similar to those under way in more than a dozen U.S. cities. A number of firms, including Appleseed Consulting in Manhattan, New York, and DiamondCluster International in Chicago are expected to bid on the project. The deadline for proposals is July 21, 2006. The EDC says it has closely followed other municipal efforts.
