After several years of planning, the city of Loveland broke ground on its Pulse project, a city-owned broadband system with regional collaboration, reported the Denver Post. The project is expected to take three to five years to complete and will cover the entire city. The broadband system will be funded by $95 million in bonds.
The project includes five telecommunication huts that will house fiber and electric equipment. The city has contracted with Alpha Technologies to manage and install the 60,000-pound huts by crane on to concrete platforms. The first hut was put in place last week. A vault is then built next to the hut that will hold fiber and electric. The remaining huts are slated for completion by the end of the year, per the Post.
