The State of Colorado Governor's Office of Information Technology (OIT) recently selected Comcast Business (NASDAQ:CMCSA) as one of the providers to deliver high-capacity fiber-optic services to state agencies, counties, cities and schools.
"OIT is always exploring opportunities to diversify our service offerings for agency customers to ensure that we meet their business needs," said Suma Nallapati, secretary of technology and state chief information officer. "Adding to our portfolio of data and telecommunications services provides us with more options for secure, fast, reliable and affordable solutions."
The Governor's Office of Information Technology facilitates services delivery through oversight, statewide policy, and a suite of statewide, competitively bid telecommunications contracts.
"We are extremely proud of the world class broadband network that we've built throughout the state of Colorado," said Rich Jennings, senior vice president, Comcast Mountain West Region. "Our network has been purposely built to power and support government, businesses and residential initiatives that empower the community, a responsibility we take very seriously. We look forward to a great partnership with the state in continuing strong economic development and growth throughout Colorado."
