Yuma County Economic Development is involved in a project to improve the broadband service in the county. At YCEDC, we are working to improve the business climate in Yuma County. Broadband has been identified at the state and federal level as the competitive advantage for communities. Those areas with no or poor quality Broadband Internet will be unable to attract modern businesses, or support existing businesses to succeed and grow.
