Officials from Breckenridge, Colorado, on Monday announced the selection of Lincoln-based Allo Communications to run the town's fiber-optic network.
Breckenridge, a ski town about 80 miles southwest of Denver, has approved spending up to $25 million on a fiber-optic network to serve its roughly 4,500 full-time residents. It expects to have the first homes and businesses online sometime in the fall.
Rather than operate the network itself, the town has signed an exclusive deal with Allo to provide internet and other services.
The deal is similar to the one Allo signed with Fort Morgan, Colorado, in 2017.
