At a recent Ignite Boulder, one of the speakers launched a rallying cry for Boulder, Colorado to build their own municipal fiber network and not wait for Google.  Now that Google has chosen Kansas City, Kansas, it is time for municipalities, like Boulder, that have recognized the benefits of a broadband network to do it themselves.  Some cities have the resources and expertise to do it themselves, and others need assistance.  We are here to help these communities develop plans and a business case to make the project a success.  The offer is out to Boulder and any other community that wants to start a successful initiative to introduce choice and competition into the communications market.
