Forethought.net plans to provide fiber internet to every home and business in Railyard Leadville with Fiber-to-the-Home internet service.
FORETHOUGHT.net, Colorado’s leading independent internet service provider, announced today its partnership with High Country Developers, LLC to provide fiber internet. Forethought.net will deliver Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) internet to homes and businesses within the Railyard Leadville community .
“By building the Fiber-to-the-Home Internet network in partnership with the developers of Railyard Leadville, together we are taking an important step in providing the citizens of Leadville access to reliable fiber-optic Internet,” says Jawaid Bazyar, president of FORETHOUGHT.net. “This partnership is very important to us as we work towards our vision of removing the digital divide throughout rural Colorado. Today we are one step closer.”
According to Railyard Leadville’s website, https://www.railyardleadville.com High Country Developers is committed to developing walkable, diverse, and sustainable community. By connecting the community with FTTH it ensures reliable fast connectivity where people want to live. High Country Developer’s, Manager, John Lichtenegger stated:
“We wanted to find the best possible solution for internet, TV and telecommunication services for our new community. We interviewed a number of telecommunication companies and followed up with end users to ensure that our selection would be a reliable, forward thinking provider of broadband services. Our team found a great match with Forethought.net who will build a fiber to the home network with flexible service offerings, demonstrated reliability and competitive pricing. We are delighted to be able to offer our future residents this desirable amenity.”
Communities like Leadville can now expect better internet connectivity options than those in larger urban areas on the Front Range. With fiber-optic internet, Forethought.net can deliver symmetric speeds up to 1 gigabit.
The FORETHOUGHT.net FTTH network is set to provide Railyard residents with up to 1 gigabit of upload and download speeds and have the option to include data and telephone service on the FORETHOUGHT.net FTTH network.
Like many other rural communities, residents of Leadville have had to rely on DSL, cable TV or satellite internet where weather could affect the quality of the connection, and long outages are
common. This partnership will ensure world-class Internet access in this iconic Colorado town, enabling remote working, telemedicine, 4K video streaming, and other modern bandwidth- intensive Internet applications.
“This FTTH build-out in Leadville is part of the ambitious FORETHOUGHT.net plan to light up entire communities throughout rural Colorado,” Bazyar said. “High Country Developers has been great to work with, and we look forward to continued partnership moving forward.” FORETHOUGHT.net expects the network to be fully upgraded by early 2019.
