VALLEY — Sustainable Internet connections are happening in the Valley.

EAGLE-Net Alliance (EAGLE-Net) is a Colorado intergovernmental entity that operates a cost-sharing cooperative intended to deliver a carrier quality broadband network to more than 170 communities across the state. Its goal is to construct a network to better connect education, libraries, government and health care facilities statewide while providing commodity Internet services with access to advanced research and education networks.

“There has been a lot of activity in this area,” said EAGLE-Net representative Dough Kissler on Monday during the San Luis Valley County Commissioners Association (SLC CCA) meeting on Monday. “We’ve been busy.”

The project was scheduled for completion this month, but due to some mishandled paperwork, he said it has been extended until the end of 2014.

Right now, he said, fiber connections on Highway 160 are being finished, and waiting for final inspections to light up the access lines, which all should happen in November.
