Jump-Start Company Grows Broadband Access in Mesa County

December 20, 2017 – Adaptive Communications, the most recent company to join the Rural Jump-Start Tax Credit program in Mesa County, is about to make it easier to gain Internet access across the Grand Valley. The company has been approved to raise three new towers. Here’s more from KJCT8:

“Three new broadband internet towers are coming to Mesa County.

Adaptive Communications will own and operate the towers. It’s a jump start business partnering with Mesa County. County commissioners are only granting the land for use.

The goal is to make it easier for businesses and people in the area to access the internet.

‘We need it for businesses, but we also need it for people, and as people are starting to come here and live here they want more access to broadband,’ said Commissioner Rose Pugliese.

Two towers will be built in Fruita and one in Clifton.

‘What we are trying to do is increase wireless communications throughout our community which allows us to have a better capacity for high-speed internet,’ said Pugliese.”
