We are committed to support a better, faster, more consistent and affordable way to deliver internet services to homes, businesses and institutions.
FSP3 helps State and local Government partners arrange private funding for a broadband network with substantially all the development and operational risks transferred to the private partner.
Focusing on all stages of the project lifecycle, performance requirements and project risks to ensure that the broadband network will be a reliable platform with the necessary flexibility to achieve the desired broadband objectives.
We are a managed infrastructure services company supporting a Public-Private Partnership (P3) business model for governments that are driven to improve their broadband infrastructure. As Macquarie Capital's North American partner, First Solutions provides clients with a wide array of expertise and resources in wireless and wireline networks, content distribution, and telecommunications infrastructure.
Our primary objective is to support government agencies with resources, expertise & funding solutions that deliver greater value, accountability & reduced risk at a lower overall cost to the public. FSP3 was founded on the principle of maintaining a quality of character throughout our management team while providing experience, integrity, innovation and a commitment to build local alliance partners. FSP3 leverages our public partner's existing personnel ensuring the right people are involved, serving in the right role, enabling government agencies to serve the public better, with greater efficiencies, at a lower overall cost.
Our fiber network design integrates alert and trap systems which facilitate immediate notification of network incidents, with support plans and redundancies in place to minimize network outages.
FSP3 has more than 144 years of executive leadership experience, our team members have built over 164,000 km of fiber across 49 states, served over 6 million end users, and managed over $3 billion in combined P&L.
FSP3 works with our public agency partners to establish customized Service Level Agreements (SLAs). The reliability and quality measurements are contained in a set of tools designed to assist both service providers and suppliers to monitor, measure, and better understand performance of the products in operation throughout the network.
FSP3 promotes a unique Public-Private Partnership (P3) that begins with the Public Partner's involvement to determine what should be delivered, then relies on both the Public Partner's resources, as well as local area contractor support and ends with the private partner carrying the risk of delivering
what was promised, including cost, time to build & performance.
