OIT Broadband’s newest effort, in coordination with the Department of Local Affairs, is the development of a Broadband Planning Map. This new database will build upon and enhance the current Colorado Broadband Map. The Colorado Broadband Map focuses on broadband service, while this new planning map will focus on broadband infrastructure.
What’s the difference? Infrastructure and asset mapping are essential parts of the broadband planning process. Understanding the services, as well as the infrastructure that delivers those services, can be critical to developing a strategy for broadband. Building a statewide infrastructure database will improve the capabilities of local, regional, and statewide efforts and increase their ability to identify opportunities and gaps.Data-Definition
