Research Valley Technology Council

The Research Valley Technology Council serves as a community-wide advisory committee to the Research Valley Partnership (RVP), a non-profit economic development corporation, for encouraging and facilitating the introduction and deployment of next generation ultra high-speed networks within the Bryan-College Station metropolitan area.

RVP is issuing a Request for Information (“RFI”) to solicit interest and information from potential providers of a next-generation, ultra-high-speed fiber-optic broadband communications network that will meet the current and future needs of businesses, institutions, government entities, and residents throughout the Bryan-College Station metropolitan area.

This RFI is open to, and welcomes, responses from all legally qualified entities, including incumbent communications service providers.
