Broadband 

The American Rescue Plan Act allows a variety of expenditures to support broadband access for Douglas County citizens, including but not limited to:

Allowable Investments

  • “Last mile” broadband projects in underserved areas, defined as areas not currently served with a “wireline” connection delivering speeds of at least 25 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload. Projects must provide symmetrical upload and download speeds of 100 Mbps upon completion in most circumstances.  
  • Internet access programs for disadvantaged households. 
  • ARPA funds claimed under the revenue loss provisions could be broadly used for governmental purposes.  

Proposals

Broadband Project Options

Broadband Project Options – The Broadband study initiated by the County in August of 2021 identified several options to facilitate broadband in the County. ARPA funds could be used to augment other State and Federal funding opportunities as described in greater detail here.

Contracted Expenditures

Broadband Study

Broadband Study – The study will improve our collective understanding of current connectivity and any connectivity issues our citizens and businesses may have and help determine the next steps to take to keep the County as a top destination to work, live and play. The initial phase of the study includes gathering input from county residents, businesses, and key stakeholders which will be compared against industry data. The study and analysis were completed in March 2022 by HR Green, a national broadband consulting firm that has worked extensively throughout Colorado.
