Highline brings true high-speed Internet service to Pueblo West Colorado!
PUEBLO WEST, Colorado–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Highline today announced the launch of super-fast Gigabit fiber Internet service for unserved, underserved, and previously underserved homes in the Pueblo West Metropolitan District (PWMD) and the City of Pueblo, in Colorado. The connection of the first customer, the Koller family, was marked by a celebration and ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by the community, local officials and Highline staff. The Kollers work and study from home and are the perfect example of the need for true high-speed internet.
This announcement is just the start of Highline’s plan to build a future-proof fiber network in Colorado to connect thousands of homes that have not had adequate Internet access.
“The speed and reliability that fiber provides our customers is essential in today’s world where streaming entertainment, online learning and working from home often happen at the same time. Highline is building an all-new fiber optic network, designed to deliver lightning-fast symmetrical download/upload speeds, and it’s a great opportunity to improve education, healthcare, and economic development for everyone in the PWMD and the City of Pueblo,” said Deb Rand, CEO of Highline South/West Region. “We’re thrilled to be the service provider that finally delivers real Internet access that improves the quality of life for families like the Kollers.”
The Kollers sent a note after their Highline installation “Thank you! Internet is operational and works very well. The installation guys were great! This is a huge improvement for us!
“Pueblo West applauds Highline’s commitment to this ongoing effort to bring true high-speed internet to our community. The positive effect on our residents, our education and health systems, and our economic development in Pueblo West is something we have been looking forward to. We are excited to bridge the digital divide that has affected many residents with Gigabit Internet! shared Brian Caserta, fire chief and chief administrator of PWMD.
During the groundbreaking ceremony, local resident Dave Eldridge was quick to share that “Highline’s Internet service will help residents and businesses in the Pueblo West Metropolitan District gain access to high-speed Internet speeds that we haven’t achieved before.
“Finding the first customer was made possible by the tremendous work of our own internal teams at Highline, as well as AEG and EnterSource, who are both extremely important business partners of Highline, so a special thanks to everyone involved,” shared David Shipley, COO Highline South/West Region.
