Broadband Deployment Board & Fund



The Colorado Office of Policy, Research and Regulatory Reform conducted a sunset review of the Colorado Broadband statute.  Analysis was performed to determine if statute regarding the Commission is necessary and should be continued, modified, or repealed. A copy of the Report can be reviewed on their website, under "High Cost Support  Mechanism", at https://coprrr.colorado.gov/archive-of-reviews. 

The Broadband Deployment Board, established by the Colorado General Assembly in 2014, provides grants through the Broadband Fund to deploy broadband service in unserved areas of the state.
