Broadband Service Bills for Rural Areas
KREX News Room
GRAND JUNCTION,Colo. On Monday, officials with Club 20 are set to meet with legislators to discuss new bills that will bring more broadband services to rural areas.
Club 20 officials say there are about 100,000 customers throughout rural Colorado who have no access to broadband services.
They also say this is important to communities because it's essential to keep businesses in operation and stay connected to urban areas.
Club 20 officials want legislators to make sure these bills have all the correct components.
"If we have the wrong policies and if we have the wrong stipulations in our regulations and our legislation we might miss out on accessing some of those funds that Colorado citizens are already paid to the FCC, we should be able to bring those funds back,” said Club 20 Executive Director Bonnie Petersen.
The meeting will be held at the Old Mesa County Courthouse in Training Room A. The discussion is set to start at 10:00 a.m. The Old Mesa County Courthouse is located at 544 Rood Avenue in downtown Grand Junction.
Officials say these bills will be reviewed and the necessary changes will be made.
