Connected Nation mapping state’s broadband access

Filed under: Daily News | Tags:, ,

Colorado and Connected Nation are mapping the state to determine which areas have access to broadband Internet connections.

Visitors to http://www.connectcolorado.org/ can test the speed of their connections, comment about how broadband has affected their lives and provide consumer feedback. Visitors without broadband access can add their name and address to a database of households that would subscribe if broadband were available.

The state will then try to determine how to deliver broadband access to all residents.

Colorado is one of several states working with Connected Nation to determine availability and support of expansion of broadband Internet access.

Investing in broadband infrastructure can stimulate the local economy and lead to job growth.

  1. Is this outfit for real? I think the concept is supert!
    The Al Gore Dream! Universal internet conductivity!
    However, I went to site and signed up: then routed me to a site “Connect North Carolina”. WT?
    I couldn’t access speed test for my area.

    Site doesn’t provide a mission statement or any real content other than a lame effort to create a date base with no reward for signing up…

  2. Site worked fine for me. Let’s all support getting the government out of the way and let broadband expand.
