Yolo Broadband Strategic Plan – We want to hear from you!

As part of a countywide strategic planning initiative to formulate a long term sustainable broadband plan, the Yolo Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCo) is seeking feedback from Yolo County businesses and residents concerning their broadband needs and services via a survey posted on www.yolocounty.org.   

As more of our daily lives are carried out online, access to affordable and reliable broadband Internet service is important to the future of the Yolo County community.  The countywide region (including the cities of Davis, West Sacramento, Winters and Woodland, and all the unincorporated communities and rural areas within Yolo County) is embarking on a collaborative broadband Internet planning study to determine how to best ensure that Yolo County businesses, residents and community anchors have access to affordable, reliable broadband Internet service that will meet their long-term needs.
