Internet project for rural Colorado on hold

DURANGO — A three-year project funded with $100 million in federal stimulus money that promised to connect more than 170 communities throughout the state with a 1 gigabit, high-speed fiber-optic Internet connection is on hold in Colorado.

The federal government suspended Eagle-Net’s grant citing environmental issues with the project’s current routes and problems with permits and consultations with other agencies.

According to the Durango Herald (http://tinyurl.com/cbxonoh ), Eagle-Net officials say they expect the suspension to be lifted May 1 at the latest.
