    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."
