1 gig fiber internet available to at least parts of Rangely and Meeker? Apparently so, I learned today. fwiw. I'd think they would want to tout that more. May be more enticing in Meeker.

Longmont too, if you count that as small.

These are municipal networks. I dunno if there are really high speed small towns provided by private providers; presumably there are some. Which ones do you know of, outside of front range in particular? Let's say 100 meg plus available.

Longmont's network is one of the best in the country.

I'd be interested in following this news too. I know many Colorado cities and counties have passed resolutions allowing them to opt-out of the law prohibiting the use of taxpayer money to fund municipal broadband networks. However I haven't seen a lot of news regarding development of those networks.


It looks like Fort Collins approved a build-out earlier this year, projected to take 3-5 years to complete.


Also, I just remembered that DMEA (Delta-Montrose Electric Association) is building out fiber. They cover Paonia, Hotchkiss, Crawford, Delta and Montrose. A lot of areas are already in service.

No. Longmont is not small. This is where people who work in Boulder live.

Colorado City Colorado is small. If you combine Colorado City and Rye, you have around 5,000. They have fiber.

I don't consider Longmont small but some folks coming from big metros might.
