Awarding of contract to Peak Speed carries higher-than-average risks

My compliments to the Summit Daily News on an excellent set of articles and an outstanding opinion column about the situation with Netbeam, Peak Speed Communications and the Summit County Telecommunications Consortium (SCTC). 

It certainly appears that the SCTC, in awarding a contract to Peak Speed, has made a decision with associated risks much higher than the average person would consider reasonable.

It would be interesting to know from members of SCTC other than Bernie Zurbriggen why SCTC 1) selected Peak Speed instead of Qwest, 2) could not wait for to submit a proposal, when only two proposals had been received, and 3) felt that Peak Speed owners, after running Netbeam into bankruptcy in a relatively short time, were qualified to undertake the construction of high-speed Internet capability in Summit County.

Keep up the good work, and stay on top of this situation.
