Colorado Community Anchors Broadband Consortium-Connecting Colorado’s Middle Mile

Colorado’s Centennial Board of Cooperative Educational Services (CBOCES), a state agency, is proposing a public-private partnership to bring broadband service to school districts, libraries, and community anchor institutions across Colorado. The project would address the lack of affordable high-capacity broadband access at many rural and underserved school districts and educational institutions, many of which currently rely on outdated copper-based telecommunications facilities. The proposed Educational Access Gateway Learning Environment Network (EAGLE-Net) is a hybrid of more than 1,600 miles of terrestrial fiber and 3,000 miles of microwave wireless broadband expanding services across each of Colorado’s 64 counties.
