In 2007 the City of Columbus held a two day retreat to develop a Broadband Strategic plan. The participants consisted of leadership from the private sector, the government sector; (State, local, and county), higher education, Public Safety and neighborhood leaders. The purpose of the retreat was to formulate a roadmap on how we as a city could continue to be a leader in the 21st Century through the deployment and use of a fiber optics network.
