Feasibility Studies
Honest, unbiased and independent advice based on experience. Unlike other firms, Magellan has no ties to vendors or manufacturers that lock you into their solution.

Trust and client service is the foundation of our reputation. We’ve earned it over the years working for so many municipalities, utilities and coops. Our feasibility studies are fact-based, using real-world scenarios, costs and results so you can make informed decisions on the best fiber and broadband options for your community and your customers.
