ABOUT THE COLORADO FORUM

The Colorado Forum was established in 1978 to create an informed, objective voice on critical public policy issues facing the state.  Our 77 members are recognized leaders in the business, education, health care, media, legal, real estate, agriculture, financial, energy, consulting, tourism, construction, and non-profit communities and represent disparate parts of the state.  Forum membership is politically diverse; we are a nonpartisan organization that operates by 100% consensus.

STATEWIDE BROADBAND

 

Our Perspective

 

The Colorado Forum has advocated for strong public K-12 schools and universities, a quality health care system, and excellent transportation infrastructure for the entire forty years of our existence. These important priorities and Colorado’s economic prosperity all depend on cost-effective and reliable high-speed broadband throughout the State.

 

Our Work   

 

We applaud the work of the Colorado State Broadband office and the increased state funding for rural broadband resulting from Senate Bill 18-002. Colorado has made great strides in implementing broadband infrastructure in our rural areas, but more work and more funding is needed to reach all our households and businesses with reliable, affordable and high-speed internet connectivity. This is a priority for the Colorado Forum and needs to be elevated as a priority for the entire state.
