DENVER, CO – The Niagara Falls International Airport Stakeholders Group (NFIASG) has selected Magellan Advisors, a broadband planning and telecom consulting firm, to develop a fiber optic and broadband assessment. Magellan’ staff of broadband planners will help NFIASG bring new fiber-optic infrastructure to important economic development areas in Niagara County, New York.
Magellan Advisors will work with NFIASG to examine existing broadband infrastructure countywide with a focus on key economic development areas.

Fiber optic service will support development of the airport including the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station as it takes on new missions.
