At the February 11, 2020 City Council Meeting, City Council, City Staff and the public discussed improvements to Telecommunications Technology in Fountain.  The City will be discussing options for enhanced broadband service in the community.  City Council decided to move forward with a “partnership model” for improving Broadband in the Fountain area.  This means the City will start discussions with various commercial companies to build a new, privately owned broadband network.  In exchange for this new network, the City is willing to negotiate use of some of its infrastructure and resources.  The goal of this endeavor will be to make fast, affordable internet available to the Fountain community!

In the coming months, the City will continue to work through this guidance from City Council and develop a way ahead.  For additional information and updates, you can go to:  https://www.fountaincolorado.org/cms/one.aspx?pageId=15265664
