Estes Park Voters Reestablish Right to Use Fiber Network for Telecom Services

  • Estes Park Economic Development Corporation’s Competitive Broadband Committee
  • NEO Fiber
ESTES PARK, CO —Voters in Estes Park overwhelmingly approved an initiative to make its fiber optics network available for advanced telecommunications in the Estes Valley.

“The Town of Estes Park is happy with the results of this election. Broadband service is critical for any community moving into the future, and technological challenges are greater for a smaller community like Estes Park, of the voters’ choice to approve the initiative," said Town Administrator Frank Lancaster. “This will allow us to look at a number of alternatives that can improve the service to residents, guests and businesses as well as allow the town to partner with our local Internet providers to help them become more successful and to provide a higher level of service to their customers."

The Estes Park Economic Development Corporation’s Competitive Broadband Committee requested the ballot initiative and will conduct a series of meetings in the days following the election for local residents and businesses to provide feedback on current broadband service and how improvements will benefit both organizations and local residents. NEO Fiber, the Estes Area Broadband Strategy consultant will host the meetings. NEO Fiber’s work is being funded by a grant from the U.S. Economic Development Administration.
