Regional Broadband Plan
CVRPC is developing a network of contacts in communities and various industry sectors to assess where opportunities are available to develop broadband adoption and/or access. With the help of local and regional stakeholders, including our regional technology team, broadband survey, and key stakeholder interviews, we are formulating an integrated technology plan.
Having recently completed our draft Sector Analysis Report, analyzing the current strengths and weaknesses for broadband implementation and usage, CVRPC is well on the way to developing a regional technology plan.
