Brian and his team have also developed Public-Private Partnerships throughout the Western Slope including the Northwest Colorado Broadband partnership in Routt County, the Pitkin County Broadband Initiative in Pitkin County and operating the THOR network for the Northwest Colorado Council of Governments.
