About Connect4

High speed affordable internet to every rooftop in Montezuma County.
Internet the 4th Utility!

THE TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION: This project is a complete broadband build-out that touches every rooftop. It does not overbuild the Farmers Telephone service area. This open access network will be built using multiple phases to construct the middle mile and last mile county-wide. The middle mile will connect the city and town “HUBS” and provide a level of redundancy to the Tri-State fiber path. The last mile will utilize a passive optical network “PON” for citizen connectivity. This is the latest technology that Google is deploying. The network is a combination of centralized and distributed fiber split. Hubs will be placed in Dolores, Mancos and Towaoc, and these Hubs will be connected to the Cortez Hub and co-location facility for the service provider’s integration. A combination of aerial, underground and wireless construction will be required. Wireless will be utilized in difficult terrain areas to provide connectivity.
