FORETHOUGHT.net launches Glass Roots Fiber construction company

FORETHOUGHT.net, one of Colorado’s leading rural broadband providers, announced today that it has launched a new subsidiary called Glass Roots Fiber.

“Glass Roots Fiber is being staffed with experts in fiber splicing and underground construction, in order to accelerate FORETHOUGHT.net fiber to the home initiatives throughout rural Colorado”, said Jawaid Bazyar, President of FORETHOUGHT.net. “By having these capabilities in house, we will be able to do the work we need, when we need it, at the best possible cost. This will be a huge benefit to our rural Colorado markets.”

Underground construction is currently an especially expensive way to deploy fiber broadband, costing up to 10 times as much as deploying fiber on poles.

“Lower cost to build means lower cost of service and more customers reached for the same dollar, and is exactly what rural Colorado needs to increase the reach of fiber broadband.” added Eric Hager, Vice President of Business Development at FORETHOUGHT.net. “This opens up many opportunities previously too expensive to contemplate.”

FORETHOUGHT.net is one of Colorado’s top fiber to the home and fixed wireless broadband providers, with thousands of customers throughout Colorado and northern New Mexico.
