Our lifestyles are becoming more and more dependent on Broadband as the new 4th utility. We express our interest in getting this service to our homes. The current FCC broadband benchmark, calling for at least 25 Mbps download speed and 3 Mbps upload speed, will allow us to get video, voice, health, educational and business information at a much faster rate than is currently available.

Why this petition is needed: To show the level of interest in acquiring high-speed Internet service to relevant entities -- county government, Colorado’s Broadband Deployment Board, national government agencies, existing and potential service providers, funding sources, etc.

Broadband Benefits: Home-based businesses that are becoming prominent in our economy; home-based employment that is a major direction for our work force; growing economical and efficient shopping sources; emerging telemedicine providing healthcare in our homes; online educational opportunities; and convenient entertainment. Note also that high-speed Internet service can increase property values by tens of thousands of dollars and dramatically affect the salability of homes.
