Nearly every aspect of our lives involves technology. When the pandemic required residents to work, learn and connect with people and services from home, it accelerated the need for fast, reliable and affordable broadband access. That’s why we set a goal to connect 99% of Colorado households to high-speed broadband by the end of 2027. Our new Advance Colorado Broadband state-managed grant program will deploy federal funding for projects that invest in capital assets, bridge the state's digital divide and help Coloradans thrive anywhere in the state.
