A Little Background

Back in December of 2020, Clearnetworx and Montrose County School District worked together on a grant centered around reducing students and teachers ability to access reliable and affordable internet. The Connecting Colorado Students Grant was created by the Colorado Department of Education with the purpose of distributing funds to Schools for the purpose of expanding broadband within their community and helping to remove financial barriers that some households face in bringing online access into the home.

The program was based off Clearnetworx initial response to the COVID-19 pandemic. In the spring of 2020, Clearnetworx partnered with the Telluride Foundation to expand broadband access and provide free and reduced-cost internet to students and teachers as districts first shifted to remote learning. You can learn more about the Connect Students Program and the Telluride Foundation here.

ABOUT CLEARNETWORX

Founded in 2012, Clearnetworx was Montrose’s first locally owned and operated fiber internet provider. Our team started by bringing the first affordable fiber internet into the Montrose community for schools, hospitals, and businesses. Since then, we’ve constructed well over 200miles of fiber and brought fiber internet into both business and residential communities across the Western Slope. You can learn more about how we’re making an impact with the internet and the programs we’ve partnered with your community to build on our Why Fiber Matters page.
