The goal and purpose of this forum is to provide a resource for members of the community to become informed and to enable thoughtful discussion on all possible broadband (Internet & Phone) options, now and in the future. We have established this forum with only one bias -- and that is to see the successful deployment of a modern, cost effective broadband infrastructure to accommodate our community's current requirements and to be able to scale with future needs and we have no bias on who the ultimate provider is.
We strongly believe the collective health (individual & environmental) and prosperity of San Juan county will be greatly enhanced by the introduction of a reliable broadband service.
The site is divided into two majors sections- Broadband Information and Broadband Discussion Forums. Broadband Information
will contain a wide variety of information, data, articles, glossary, polls and explanation on this subject. This information mainly consist of two categories, Broadband Internet

The second main area is dedicated to community-wide discussion for a variety of topics that relate to the current plan on offer from OPALCO. This can be found under Broadband Discussion Forums
