Montgomery County, Virginia– Since launching an initiative to address the broadband needs throughout Montgomery County and the City of Radford, in March of 2019, the County and City have selected a proposal from Thompson and Litton who collaborated with a regional telecommunications and broadband company, Blue Ridge Advisory Services, Inc.  Together, the two companies will: 

• assess current broadband coverage gaps;

• assess existing resources;

• propose an overall broadband plan;

• provide cost analysis of proposed projects; 

• analyze cooperative projects; and 

• create a sample RFP (request for proposals) for a public-private partnership.

Blue Ridge Advisory Services has assisted with several other broadband initiatives in Virginia communities to include, Bristol, the Roanoke Valley Broadband Authority, and the Rockbridge Area Network Authority.
