Colorado: Electric utility given OK to offer telecom service in Durango

Colorado: Electric utility given OK to offer telecom service in Durango

"The telecommunications company owned by La Plata Electric Association has received permission to use Durango’s telephone lines to offer high-speed Internet as well as telephone service. Under a decision by the Colorado Public Utilities Commission made Aug. 1, FastTrack Communications can use Qwest’s copper phone lines in Durango to send and receive data and voice signals. Once the signals reach Qwest’s building on East Second Avenue, they will be sent down a fiber-optic cable that runs from Albuquerque to Grand Junction that serves Durango."

La Plata Electric Association, a rural electric cooperative, has been extremely progressive (although at great financial cost) in running fiber in New Mexico and western Colorado to link underserved areas.
