    SANTA ROSA, CA—The Sonoma County Economic Development Board (EDB) has engaged Magellan Advisors to assist the county in developing a Broadband Strategic Plan. Magellan’s senior team of consultants will work with the county, EDB and Access Sonoma Broadband (ASB) to successfully develop a plan for Sonoma County’s broadband future. Ben Stone, Sonoma County Economic Development Director says, 

    “Broadband is a necessity and no longer a luxury for residents, businesses, and anchor institutions, including health care facilities, public safety agencies, and schools. The strategic plan will analyze and make recommendations for improving access to internet services."

    Magellan Advisors and the ASB are planning an educational workshop along with community meetings, focus groups, and interviews in September 2017.

    To learn more, including upcoming meetings and focus group times, please see the press release.
