Community Broadband Bits 10 – Vince Jordan from Longmont, Colorado

| Written by Christopher | No Comments | Updated on Aug 28, 2012 The content that follows was originally published on the Institute for Local Self-Reliance website at https://ilsr.org/community-broadband-bits-10-vince-jordan-from-longmont-colorado/

The tenth episode of the Community Broadband Bits podcast features Vince Jordan, Telecom Manager for Longmont Power and Communication in Colorado. We have long followed the trials and tribulations of this community as they fought through two referenda against Comcast’s deep pockets. Now they are expanding their network to connect businesses and residents.

You can learn more about Longmont’s approach on its website for the project. Our interview discusses some of the history behind the network, reflections on referenda, and the interesting approach Longmont has taken to avoid getting involved in the cable television business while still making sure everyone can view the content they want.
