The Impact of Broadband
Access to broadband has a strong correlation with economic well-being. Nationwide, the impact it has on the communities it connects is real and measurable. The Broadband Fund exists to connect communities and fuel economic growth in unserved areas across Colorado. The Broadband Deployment Board provides grants through the Broadband Fund to deploy broadband service in unserved areas of the state.
The Broadband Deployment Board within the Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA) has awarded $10.9 million in grants since 2016 in an effort to close the broadband internet service gap between rural and urban Colorado communities. Sixteen infrastructure projects received Broadband Fund grants. As a result, over 13,000 rural homes and businesses across Colorado will benefit from Broadband Internet access.
