Broadband Advisory Board

About the Broadband Advisory Board

The Broadband Advisory Board (BAB) was created by Executive Order B 2020 009 (signed Oct. 30, 2020) to focus on collaboration and coordination of broadband efforts for Colorado. The BAB partnered with the Office of the Future of Work (OFOW) for updates on digital inclusion and literacy. 

The purpose of the Broadband Advisory Board (BAB) was to facilitate the collaboration between broadband stakeholders with the goal of improving access and adoption to broadband throughout the State of Colorado. 

Goals of the BAB were to provide a neutral public platform to share information, brainstorm, and provide feedback to state agencies, the Governor’s Office, and other partners on (a) how to efficiently and effectively deploy fast, reliable, and future-proof broadband, and (b)  how to make broadband infrastructure accessible and affordable for all.

On June 2, 2022 Governor Polis signed Executive Order (EO) D 2022 023 restating and amending Executive Order D 2022 009 (signed Feb. 17, 2022), creating a universal broadband Executive Order to accelerate broadband deployment in Colorado.

Polis’ original EO on broadband, EO B 2020 009 (signed Oct. 30, 2020), is no longer needed and is rescinded by EO D 2022 023. As a result of Governor Polis’ June 2 signing of the EO D 2022 023, the Broadband Advisory Board (BAB) has been dissolved.
