Lake County Connect (LCC) is a group of local residents and business people gathering data concerning Broadband in Lake County. What is available? Will there be enough Broadband to meet future needs? How do we tap into the “backbone” of fiber optic cable that’s buried down the center of Harrison Avenue? What are neighboring rural communities doing concerning Broadband?
Consider all of the technologies that we’ve come to depend on for day-to-day living, both personal and business-related . Cell Phones – check. Internet – check. Running credit cards for business purchases – check. Downloading movies – check. School work – check. Medical procedures and reports – check. The list seems endless. Slowly, small rural communities like Leadville have become increasing dependent on Broadband.
