Broadband on the rise

An old boiler room in the school district’s administrative building is reshaping broadband access in Steamboat Springs.

In May 2014, members of the Northwest Colorado Broadband co-op dedicated the site as a new carrier-neutral location, allowing Northwest Colorado Broadband to connect to middle-mile broadband provider Mammoth Networks. The site allows the school district, city and county to aggregate their demand and pay less for more connectivity, while allowing Mammoth to compete to provide middle-mile services to local Internet service providers and institutional customers.

“Eventually, it’s going to help the entire community,” Steamboat Springs School District Superintendent Brad Meeks says.
