Anvil Mountain is an affordable housing project funded by a collaboration between the Colorado Department of Local Affairs, the Town of Silverton, and San Juan County, in Colorado. FORETHOUGHT.net partnered with Silverton and San Juan County to bring its fiber-optic Internet to the new project. “Today, affordability includes not just the housing, but the utilities too – and our high speed fiber internet will allow residents of Anvil Mountain to be connected with big-city services at low big-city prices, while enjoying the quality of life of Silverton”, said Sid Arnold, Western Slope Manager for FORETHOUGHT.net. Jawaid Bazyar, President, added “This reaffirms our commitment to modern broadband in San Juan County. We now provide internet from 150Mbps up to gigabit speeds throughout San Juan County, Colorado. Combining our Town of Silverton, Cascade Village, and Anvil deployments, we now offer affordable modern broadband to 99% of San Juan County residents and businesses.”… read more →

We are proud to have been chosen by the Eagle Valley Library District to provide fiber-optic Internet service to the Libraries in Eagle, Colorado and Gypsum, Colorado. By leveraging our existing fiber-optic backbone in western Eagle County, we were able to provide the Library District modern, gigabit-level fiber Internet service for an amazing price – in fact, we are providing a 50 times speed increase to the libraries for less than half the price they are paying today for service from the incumbent. And this is just the tip of the iceberg of our upcoming investments in fiber optic Internet and modern wireless broadband in Eagle County – more announcements coming in the next 1-2 months.

FORETHOUGHT.net announced today that is has deployed and lit a new, fiber-optic transport system with 8 Terabit/second capacity, between Grand Junction, CO, and Montrose, CO. “Our business and the bandwidth we need to carry is growing radically in Montrose and surrounding areas. We needed a solution that would be disruptive in the marketplace – let us keep up with bandwidth demand, while ensuring long-term profitability, and total control of our own network.”, said Jawaid Bazyar, President of FORETHOUGHT.net. “This capacity will allow us to dramatically drive down long-haul bandwidth prices, as part of our mission to bridge the digital divide in rural Colorado.” DWDM, or Dense-Wave Division Multiplexing, is the technology that enables placing many parallel channels of fiber-optic signal on one fiber-optic circuit. FORETHOUGHT.net said it expects high demand for these services. “There is tremendous growth from government, and cellular, fixed wireless, and fiber to the home, and all… read more →

Why Did Eagle-Net Fail? There are several reasons why EagleNet failed. This article series will explore my analysis of the reasons for it, and hopefully provide important context for decision-makers currently considering various PPP (Public-Private Partnerships) models. FORETHOUGHT.net strongly believes there is a role for government to play in expanding broadband availability. However, it will be critical to do PPP right – and to learn from our mistakes – to achieve beneficial results, and avoid wasting the taxpayer’s money. As the private part of public-private partnerships, we believe we have a moral obligation to be good stewards of the people’s money. First, some background, for those who may not be familiar with EagleNet. EagleNet was an Inter-Governmental Agreement among school districts in Colorado, to create an entity to foster broadband connectivity to schools. To achieve this goal, they sought and won a $100 Million grant from the federal NTIA, and… read more →
