Free Fiber Optic Internet Serving Mancos, CO

Mancos, CO 11/17/2020

As part of its community outreach program, FastTrack Communications through their fiber network is currently providing a free internet service to the area surrounding the Mancos Town Administration building on Main Street, including Boyle Park. The Mancos School District, public library, Mancos Chamber of Commerce and the Town of Mancos receive fiber-optic internet connections through FastTrack.

Now remote workers, families and schoolchildren can access FastTrack’s 100 mbps dedicated symmetrical internet service free on their wireless-enabled devices. The Town of Mancos is providing the wireless equipment and setup for this secure guest wireless network. The free internet at Boyle Park will be available from 9 am to 10 pm daily.

FastTrack’s free Mancos internet connection is part of our commitment to helping rural communities adjust to life during the pandemic,” said Kelly Hebbard, FastTrack Communications general manager. “In the face of more online classrooms and remote working situations, our service can help children continue to learn and businesses continue to operate.”

Headquartered in Durango, Colorado, FastTrack Communications is the region’s only local fiber-optic based internet provider. Mancos joins other rural Colorado communities served by FastTrack that have received free or discounted services to help businesses, remote workers and municipalities adjust to increased online demand as a result of the pandemic.

“Many surrounding homes do not have access to reliable internet,” explained Mancos Clerk/Treasurer Heather Alvarez. “The FastTrack connection enables schoolchildren to do their homework online and remote workers remain productive during a time of Covid-induced physical distancing.”

Formed in 2002 to provide fiber optic connections to the region’s underserved rural areas, FastTrack Communications powers businesses, school districts, colleges, governments, local airports and other vital community cornerstones with the industry’s fastest, most reliable internet and voice technologies. The company remains locally owned and operated. For more information, visit fasttrackcomm.net
