Park County Broadband Initiative

Bailey Broadband Survey

Does the Bailey area need faster and more reliable internet? To help answer this question, Park County government and its Broadband Advisory Board wants to hear from citizens in the Bailey area feel about existing internet services and estimate the level of support for the potential deployment of broadband expansion.

If you would like to improve broadband in your community, please take the Bailey Broadband Survey for Residents and Bailey Broadband Survey for Business Owners  and encourage other community members to participate. 

Why is this important? The broadband survey results will inform a request to the Board of County Commissioners for approval to seek the Colorado state and federal funding plan and construct the Park County Middle Mile Expansion project. Which means faster, more reliable internet service will be available to residents and businesses.

Need Help Paying for Internet? 

Check out the Affordable Connectivity Program, a federal benefit program that helps ensure more households can afford the broadband they need for work, school, healthcare and more. 

The benefit provides a discount of up to $30 per month toward internet service for eligible households and up to $75 per month for households on qualifying Tribal lands. Eligible households can also receive a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet from participating providers. 

The application is a simple two-step process:

  1. Go to ACPBenefit.org to apply or print out a mail-in application.
  2. Contact your preferred participating provider to select a plan and have the discount applied to your bill.
