“Yuma is most assuredly changing,” states Eddie Chang, Partner at ABI, “Although everyone points to Bill Gates’ related entity purchase of property in Phoenix’s West Valley for the development of a ‘smart city,’ Yuma announced its own Smart City Plan in November 2017. Essentially, Yuma allowed technology company, anyComm and Siemens Industry, to begin the installation of nodes to be installed on the top of every streetlight in the city to create community wide high-speed broadband connectivity. The data received is then funneled and used for Internet of Things (IoT) type applications. This has the potential to be a major game-changer, not only for the city by way of added technology/development jobs but also nationally.”
