Request for Proposals For Regional Broadband Feasibility Study Proposals Accepted until October 19th, 2020 at 2:00 PM ET


The Eastgate Regional Council of Governments is issuing a Request for Proposals seeking the services of a consultant/firm to perform a Broadband Feasibility Study for the three-county region. A selection committee, comprised of stakeholders from each county, will then review the proposals and select from those bids the best proposal.

The selected consultant will be commissioned to put together the Study with a focus on providing enhanced and reliable Broadband Internet Service to rural areas lacking appropriate coverage, as well as urban centers that require increased speed and access. Eastgate, along with its partners from Ashtabula, Mahoning, and Trumbull County, will work in tandem with the consultant to ensure the completion of the Study to the satisfaction of the review committee, as well as provide any technical assistance that might be necessary. Upon completion, Eastgate will pursue the implementation goals outlined in the Study and seek further funding (from grants and other local sources) to do so.
