ICF To Help W. Va. Review State Broadband Project

ICF International will help the state of West Virginia review a federal stimulus grant for a statewide broadband project, the Charleston Gazette reports.

The project was intended to provide fiber optic cable to public schools, libraries, emergency dispatch centers and health-care facilities.

In July 2010, the state purchased Cisco’s 3945 series routers at a price of $22,600 per unit to provide wireless access.

However, the state quickly realized the devices were much more powerful than needed, according to the newspaper.

The company will provide recommendations on how the state can best spend the stimulus money on improving broadband internet access, the Gazette reports.
