Regional Broadband Strategic Plan


Broadband flo chartSCCOG received a DOLA grant in 2015 to secure a consultant to develop a Broadband Strategic Plan to include Huerfano, Las Animas, ueblo Counties and Raton Basin Regional Economic Development District (REDD) including cities and towns within those counties.  A draft plan has been developed that addresses high-seed internet service for business and residents and public efforts to improve broadband availability within the region.  The results of this effort will position the region to develop a coordinated approach to build on statewide efforts to improve regional rural broadband service to serve needed economic development.  The plan reflects bi-state coordination between Colorado and New Mexico specifically Colfax County via Raton Basin REDD.
