The twenty-first century version of the Colorado gold rush continues unabated. This time around, the gold is fiber optics.
On Tuesday, April 3rd, six more communities in the Mile High state voted to overturn a 2005 state law that prohibits municipal broadband, giving those cities the authority to pursue fiber projects. The towns of Severance, Lake City, Lyons, Frisco, Firestone, and Limon approved the referenda by overwhelming margins, joining over 70 other Colorado communities that have rejected the state law.
