According to the Delta County Independent, DMEA has recently changed its position on offering internet services to its constituents. Until recently, DMEA’s plans for extending fiber optic cable was isolated to its own internal uses for connecting and optimizing its substations. In response to significant community feedback, DMEA recently announced a new position that allows for middle and last mile options on the table. This update will have significant impacts to the future of broadband for not only the Delta and Montrose area, but other rural areas serviced by electrical cooperatives who are grappling with broadband access solutions.
