Broadband use high in Colorado; more capacity needed

Broadband use high in Colorado; more capacity needed


Just the same, many in Colorado still lack broadband access as this article notes:

“Cable and telephone companies that provide broadband services have been slow to bring broadband to households for reasons ranging from organizational problems to financial difficulties, according to telecommunications analysts.”

“Colorado is banking on its new state-built, Multi-Use Network to help speed up the ability to offer broadband. The network establishes a fiber-optic backbone to each of the state's 65 county seats.”

"The network doesn't provide fiber to everybody, but it moves the fiber-optic backbone closer to everybody," said Hansen. "When fiber comes it, it's like when the railroads came in; everybody starts to tap into it."
