In 2012 and 2013, the Belomar Regional Council coordinated a broadband project in Ohio, Marshall, and Wetzel Counties. Belomar was one of eleven regional planning and development councils in the state that coordinated its efforts with the West Virginia Broadband Mapping Program, headed by the West Virginia State GIS Coordinator. The project’s two objectives were to conduct a broadband needs assessment and to develop a broadband strategic plan for the region based on the assessment. The project was funded by the Office of GIS Coordination, West Virginia Geologic and Economic Survey, in the West Virginia Department of Commerce, through a grant from the National Telecommunications and Information Administration. Below is the report for the study.
