Erie puts off pursuit of high-speed municipal broadband service

Trustees opt to gauge demand for such a system from residents first

Erie’s elected leaders decided Tuesday night not to move ahead with a detailed analysis of what a townwide high-speed broadband network might look like, instead opting to survey residents first to gauge their level of interest in such a venture.

The proposed broadband feasibility study, which would have cost the town close to $50,000, would have highlighted the challenges and opportunities of building a fiber-optic network throughout Erie to deliver lightning-fast Internet connections at competitive prices.

Longmont is the only municipality on the Front Range pursuing its own high-speed broadband network, which the city plans to light up for the first time on a limited basis in the next month or two.
