  • Chicopee Electric Light

DENVER, CO — Chicopee Electric Light (CEL) has tabbed Magellan Advisors, a provider of broadband planning and IT consulting services, to develop a fiber feasibility study for the electric utility. Magellan’s staff of expert broadband planners and consultants have a combined 200-plus years of experience in telecommunications and broadband planning. Magellan Advisors will bring their deep knowledge and vast real world experience to the project as they collaborate with CEL officials to assess the opportunity in creating a broadband network and community asset to better serve the needs of business, economic development, community anchors and the improvement of the quality of life for all Chicopee residents.

The goal of the feasibility study is to enable Chicopee Electric Light to analyze viability of creating a fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) network for Chicopee’s residents, businesses, local government and community anchors, enabling increased opportunities for economic development throughout the community. CEL’s professional staff will work with Magellan’s team to create a plan that could enable CEL to future-proof its community by creating a community based broadband strategy that will support technological and economic goals both now and in the future. The plan will leverage CEL’s current fiber-optic infrastructure and possible new investments in their existing fiber optic network to serve local broadband needs for the Chicopee community.

Magellan Advisors has planned and developed fiber optic networks in over 100 communities across the U.S., and will bring this real world experience to develop a plan for Chicopee Electric Light. CEL’s Manager, Jeffrey Cady states, "CEL is eager to begin working with Magellan Advisors who will guide us in making the right decisions for our community around building a high-speed broadband network for all of Chicopee.”
