Magellan Advisors Kicks Off Regional Broadband Plan for Northern Arizona Council of Governments
Denver, CO, April 4, 2021 – The Northern Arizona Council of Governments Economic and Workforce Development (NACOG EWD) has partnered with Magellan Advisors to develop a Broadband Strategic Plan that will lay out detailed, actionable steps for increasing broadband throughout the region promoting economic development and addressing the digital divide. The project will include strategies for enhancing connectivity throughout NACOG’s member counties, including Apache, Coconino, Navajo, and Yavapai Counties, as well as among the tribal organizations in northern Arizona.
Magellan Advisors’ team will consult with NACOG stakeholders to analyze the current state of broadband including asset assessment, gap analysis, and a detailed needs assessment including a broadband survey that identifies the issues faced throughout the region’s communities. Using this information, Magellan Advisors will identify strategies for expanding access to affordable, reliable broadband by using existing assets as well as deploying new infrastructure. The Magellan team will analyze opportunities for grant funding, regional partnerships, and a conceptual network design that will enable NACOG to move forward with both immediate and long term opportunities for expanding broadband to facilitate economic development, enhance quality of life, and support a growing, thriving region into the future.
