High-Speed Broadband Initiative

Spotlight_Small_Internet

The Town of Firestone Board of Trustees has undertaken a High-Speed Broadband Initiative to explore options and opportunities to better connect our community with affordable and reliable internet access. Through this introductory step it is our intent to explore a range of alternatives available for promoting advanced broadband services to Firestone citizens, businesses and Town agencies.

There is no single solution to achieving our broadband objectives. There are no pre-determined conclusions. Nothing has been ruled in or out. In fact, thanks to Firestone voter’s overwhelming support of Ballot Question 1 in 2018, the community is now permitted to consider (without interference) “…a variety of options to serve the broadband needs of residents, including pursuit of business partnerships with private companies to increase the community’s access to broadband services.” 

The Town of Firestone Board of Trustees wants citizens to continue to be part of the broadband conversation. Once the community has been more fully engaged, we will be better positioned to identify objectives and solutions most suitable for Firestone.

The Town of Firestone High-Speed Broadband Initiative is in its early stages. As community and stakeholder meetings are scheduled and updates become available, information will be shared with the public and posted online at www.firestoneco.gov.

If you have further questions about this project, please email broadband@firestoneco.gov.
