Community Broadband Background

The city’s vision is to provide a world-class community telecommunications infrastructure to Boulder for the 21 st Century and beyond. Broadband connectivity is a critical infrastructure service for quality of modern life, as is the case with roads, water, sewer and electricity. Based on current guiding principles, this service would provide an opportunity for every home, business, non-profit organization, government entity and place of education to access a fast affordable, and secure connection, and to provide the infrastructure necessary to support future technologies, such as advanced mobility and sensor-based (Smart City) analytic infrastructures.
