GIDDY UP-DATE NEWSLETTER: High-speed internet for ALL

Dec 12, 2022

Hey folks,

When we said the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law would connect every house to fast, affordable internet, we meant every house. And earlier this month, we announced $44 million in funding for the Southern Ute Indian Ute Tribe to deploy high-speed internet to nearly 1,800 Native American households, 16 community institutions, and 14 businesses!

Tribes have waited too long for connectivity, and rural Colorado needs faster broadband to grow their economies and access critical services like telehealth. By connecting more schools, businesses, and households, we can ensure no community is left behind.

In the last century we connected every home to electricity. In this one we’re going to connect every home to reliable, high-speed internet. Giddy up!

Sincerely, 

Senator John Hickenlooper
