Our Origin Story


Like most ideas, ours started out with friends, a fire, and a few beers in the beautiful mountains of Colorado. With a passion for technology, broadband, and doing good work for the people that need it, an idea was born. An idea that bringing broadband to more people could be done better. The idea has gone from a spark to a flame, to a roaring bonfire over the years. Like most origin stories, there are surprises, twists, and turns, that keep you on your toes.

We moved from just having an idea to having a purpose. That purpose is We believe that every American deserves access to affordable broadband because it makes their lives better. In providing it, we drive the economic health and vitality of communities by increasing job opportunities, improving education and enhancing healthcare.

We execute on that purpose by gaining the right traction to stay on the right path. We are proud to use the Entrepreneural Operating System (EOS) so our vision, purpose, values, process, and people stay connected. Our customers know we have put the right people in the right seats that have the capacity and desire to serve them.

Our Core Values


From the smallest interaction to the biggest project, our goal is for everything we do to live up to the tenets of our Core Values. We know that what we do everyday determines our reputation, the level of success we achieve, and the positive impact we make towards our purpose. 
We are building something so much bigger than ourselves. We push through with tenacity, no matter the obstacle. Our persistence is our superpower. We each bring unique talents, styles, and skills. Together these things provide a conduit to make us stronger than we could ever be alone.
We are courteous, helpful, and always treat others the way we would want to be treated — at work and in our personal lives. Integrity is at the core of our behavior and relationship with each other. We stretch to be better as a company and individuals in every interaction we have.
We believe diversity in opinion creates better solutions. We think outside the box and encourage truth over harmony when trying to solve a problem. We seek out issues to solve and don’t wait to be told the answer. We use curiosity and ingenuity to bring people together.
If we say we will do it, we deliver. We constantly research and learn new skills so that we can deliver better products and services in fulfilling our purpose. We push ownership at all levels and are masters of our own experience within the business.
