Colorado gets millions to expand high-speed Internet access

LOVELAND Expanding affordable high-speed Internet access across the country could be as transformative as electrification and the interstate highway system, federal, state and local officials said Thursday during a celebration of more than 826 million dollars in federal funds that will help expand broadband in Colorado over the next three years.

The funding is part of the total $42.45 billion provided in Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet’s BRIDGE Act-based federal Broadband, Equity, Access and Deployment (BEAD) program, which was incorporated into the bipartisan federal infrastructure law.

The money will go to government agencies, libraries, workforce centers, community colleges, nonprofits, and others to expand fiber-optic broadband, provide affordable access, and train the next generation of broadband workers.
