The future of rural broadband in the Rockies is being discussed this week in Vail. The Mountain Connect Rural Broadband Conference seeks to bring together stakeholders to talk about ways of improving service. Christopher Mitchell is with the Institute for Local Self-Reliance based in Minnesota. He is attending the conference. Mitchell spoke recently to Aspen Public Radio’s Rob St. Mary about how co-ops could help improve broadband service in the rural West.
