The City of Federal Way is conducting a Broadband Planning Study, in order to determine if the Federal Way community is adequately served with broadband Internet services for now and the future. Recognizing that Internet access is vital for our community to conduct many aspects of daily life including employment, education, and telehealth. In light of this, the City applied for and was awarded, a broadband planning grant by the Washington State Community Economic Revitalization Board (CERB).
