City to consolidate Internet services, save tax dollars
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The city of Jacksonville is making a high-tech move to save taxpayers $200,000 a year.
The city and a number of other agencies, including JTA, JEA and City Council, are consolidating their Internet services while also moving to a 1 gigabyte network.
The new service, provided by Florida LambdaRail, more than doubles the city's network capacity.
The city says people will notice faster Web browsing at its libraries and other city buildings.
The new service is already up and running in government facilities across Jacksonville.
