Mont Belvieu, Texas & Magellan Bring Citywide Gigabit Internet

  • Magellan Advisors
DENVER, CO — MBLink, the gigabit fiber network in the city of Mont Belvieu, Texas, now provides gigabit internet to homes and businesses throughout the City, touting some of the fastest Internet in Texas. MB Link provides everyone in the city with the opportunity to access gigabit internet service at a price that's cheaper than most national providers. And, there are no data caps.

To implement the network, the City hired Magellan Advisors, a broadband and smart city consulting firm, to provide its turnkey broadband deployment solutions to plan, design and manage construction of the network. Magellan was Mont Belvieu’s trusted partner through the entire implementation, from planning the deployment, to engineering the network, to designing the data center, to issuing procurements, to managing construction and supporting Mont Belvieu’s launch and operational needs.

Magellan provided its solutions team to cover each functional area of the deployment, ensuring that Mont Belvieu had expertise throughout the entire implementation. This enabled Mont Belvieu to deploy its network rapidly and with a team that had the experience from numerous fiber to the home deployments nationwide. Magellan’s turnkey solution also allowed Mont Belvieu to interface with a single company, instead of managing multiple vendors throughout the fiber deployment.

Construction of the network was completed on schedule and under budget, allowing Mont Belvieu to launch services to the community based on its original commitments. For $75 per month, residents get 1 Gbps internet and an in-home gigabit gateway router. Demand for service has been significant in the first six months of the network and MBLink is surpassing its original uptake forecasts.
