Broadband is high-speed internet and 10 to 100 times faster than dial-up. As defined by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), broadband must include a minimum of 25 Mbps download speed and 3 Mbps upload speed.
The Town of Windsor and the City of Greeley partnered to conduct a Broadband Feasibility Study to determine the need, feasibility, and recommendations regarding broadband Internet services for Windsor and Greeley residents. The study, conducted by NEO Connect, helped identify several recommendations for improving broadband availability and speeds — identifying potential levels of investment for consideration and options available for increased levels of service.
Residential and business feedback was conducted through surveys and during a public meeting that was held November 28, 2017. The purpose of the meetings were to gather the community’s feedback on existing broadband Internet services available to homes and businesses. During the meeting, the Town met with the following stakeholder groups: medical providers, schools and library, businesses, entrepreneurs, Chamber of Commerce, and the community at-large. Initial findings were discussed with Town Board at the December 4, 2017 Work Session.
