The City of Mont Belvieu’s heritage is built on the oil and gas industry, processing nearly 85% of the natural gas liquids in the US. Major oil and gas companies employ a significant amount of Mont Belvieu’s workforce. For years, residents and businesses of Mont Belvieu, a suburb only 30 miles from Houston, have struggled with slow, unreliable internet and limited choices from existing providers. While Houston received large investments from providers to bring faster speeds and more options to the market, Mont Belvieu continued to struggle with limited options.
To implement the network, the City hired Magellan to engineer, construct and launch the fiber to the home network. Magellan provided a dedicated team of broadband experts that provided a turnkey solution to manage all facets of design, construction, operations and support for Mont Belvieu’s broadband business, including: Business & financial planning, Fiber to the home design engineering, Construction management, Sales and marketing integration, Internet and backhaul procurement.
Construction of the network was completed on time and under budget, allowing Mont Belvieu to launch services to the community based on its original commitments.
