Only with your help can we bring fiber optic Internet to our beloved mountain homes. In addition to having fast, reliable, high quality internet, here are some additional advantages to participating now:
HERE'S WHAT WE NEED FROM YOU:
Commit to fiber-optic internet service from SPT once it becomes available.
The purpose of the Commitment and $500 payment is primarily to let our partner South Park Telephone (SPT) know that if they invest in the infrastructure, there are enough people who will sign up for their service. This is the fee to bring fiber from the main route to your home (referred to as the “last mile”). Considering that once the infrastructure is complete the last mile cost would be $2-3K, it is a great value.
Progress Goal: 350 commitments of 901 eligible lots

SPT will distribute a template and speed test website to use for the testing, we encourage all project area residents to participate in the exercise so we may present a good sample in the application.
