Loveland businesses invited to take Broadband Survey
Contact: Tom Hacker, public information officer, 962-2302
Voters have given a green light to begin active research on the feasibility of high-speed, fiber-optic broadband service throughout Loveland.
The City and its new consultant Magellan Advisors have begun that process by starting a community-wide conversation on the City of Loveland’s Open City Hall forum.
More than 700 Loveland households have already responded to a survey tailored to home-internet users. Now it’s time to survey Loveland-area businesses, to continue the conversation that will ultimately determine the path ahead for community broadband in Loveland.
This research process is guided by a set of rules requiring that any new service be:
• Fast, offering speeds greater than 1 gigabyte of digital information per second.
• Affordable, with rates lower than what most residents pay for their existing internet connections.
• Inclusive, providing access to every resident, business and institution within Loveland.
• Reliable, ensuring that the service is available on demand and without interruption.
The results of this and future surveys will provide the basis for a broadband needs assessment that will be a key piece of Magellan’s ultimate recommendation to the City.
