Conceptual Design for Broadband Fiber Backbone

On June 12th, City Council unanimously passed a motion to proceed with development of a fiber backbone in support of the city’s broadband efforts. While the backbone will not immediately result in gigabit speed internet service for homes and businesses in Boulder, its construction is the needed first step for a future broadband service by the city and/or an arrangement with an internet service provider. Additionally, a backbone will provide the infrastructure necessary to support current, emerging and future technologies, such as advanced mobility and Smart City (sensor-based) analytic infrastructures.

This file represents the conceptual design of the fiber backbone approved by council.
