PamunkeyNet Business Plan

This project assists with the design and implementation of a sustainable business model for high‐speed broadband delivery to underserved areas of Region 6. GO Virginia funds will be utilized for the development of a business plan and the creation of a new legal enterprise owned by the Pamunkey Tribe, which will serve as a conduit to currently untapped federal resources for broadband development. State broadband resources previously deployed in the region resulted in broadband infrastructure plans, but a business plan is still vital to the region’s ability to seek any available resources for broadband implementation.
