The leased fiber runs from approximately Golden to Vail and is part of CDOT's existing network, which the agency uses for high-speed communications to the CDOT business network. Comcast is leasing dark fiber. As part of the agreement, Comcast will provide support for this portion of CDOT's fiber network with maintenance services.
With the added bandwidth, Comcast plans to launch advanced video, Internet and digital voice services in Colorado mountain communities including Avon, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Dillon, Frisco, Keystone and Silverthorne. The company anticipates completing the roll out of the new services by Spring 2011.
