DCAP members partner with local governments to use wireless broadband technologies such as Wi-Fi and WiMAX to promote economic development and community enhancement.

“Corban Networks is pleased to join Civitium as an early member of the Digital City Alliance Program. We recognize that no single company can deliver all of the products and services required to create a Digital City and we are eager to leverage Corban’s network assets and Bod’s last mile capabilities to benefit communities across America.” – Hill Branscomb, Senior Vice President of Corban Networks, Inc.

Civitium LLC, a consulting firm based in Alpharetta, Georgia, founded the Digital City Alliance Program in 2004, recognizing the need to streamline the way in which commercial organizations cooperate with local governments who are deploying wireless technology. In addition to making broadband services more available and affordable, local governments are also providing an infrastructure for Digital City applications in areas such as Public Safety, Transportation, Education, E-Government, Healthcare and Public Works.

“Civitium is excited to have a company with Corban’s assets, capabilities and passion for public-sector cooperation as part of the Digital City Alliance. While many commercial network service providers show indifference or work to disrupt municipal wireless projects, Corban clearly understands the profound economic and social drivers involved and has assets that are aligned with the needs in mid and rural-America. ” – Ray Powers, Chief Operating Officer of Corban Networks, Inc.
