As part of the quest to increase the City of Craig and Moffat County’s broadband capacity, the Craig City Council commissioned a broadband planning study at their Tuesday meeting. The study will be preformed by NEO Connect from Glenwood Springs. According to their website NEO Connect is at the forefront of broadband innovation, from planning to execution. Craig Mayor Ray Beck said the study, which will cost $48,000, is intended to make broadband technology more affordable and accessible in the community to advance the community’s economic development goals, plus provide needed redundancy. The study will identify gaps in the broadband services that are currently offered, and put together a plan to provide the greatest positive impact, especially when it comes to economic development and attracting jobs. Moffat County and the City of Craig along with businesses in the area raised $25,000 to pay for the study. That amount was matched by the Department of Local Affairs through a grant.
