Why is broadband important, and what are we doing about it?

A high-speed, high-capacity, affordable network will have numerous important positive effects on our community. High-speed internet access is necessary for much of our day-to-day lives. It impacts regional commerce, education, health, and cultural enrichment and aids in countless conveniences and efficiencies in our lives.

On March 28, 2023, Town of Timnath staff provided an update on the broadband feasibility study to the Timnath Town Council during a study session. During the presentation (click here to see the presentation), Town staff shared results from the Broadband Services Letter of Intent process, including their intent to continue to build a relationship with Pulse for broadband services.  

Background on broadband in Timnath:

At the April 25, 2023 Timnath Town Council Meeting, Council approved an engagement with UMB Financials Services to explore our broadband financing options.  UMB will provide financial scenarios for the Town to consider that measure revenue sources and potential financing options to fund broadband services for the community.


Why is the Town of Timnath seeking a broadband service partner? 

As part of the Town of Timnath’s 2021 resident survey, internet service opportunities were identified as a priority to achieve the goal of upgrading essential infrastructure. In 2022, a master plan for broadband implementation was developed. Identified in that plan was the opportunity to partner with local municipal broadband providers.  

Is construction in this new area imminent?  

No. This is just the next step in building a relationship between the Town of Timnath and Pulse.  Pulse staff will be working closely with the Town of Timnath on next steps. More information will be provided once available.  

What are the next steps? 

The Town of Timnath and Pulse will continue discussions regarding what a broadband program could look like for the Town of Timnath. Of course, moving forward, a formal agreement or IGA would need to be brought forward and approved by the Timnath Town Council and Loveland City Council. 

Why is Loveland’s community-owned internet serving other communities and residents outside of Loveland?  

High-quality internet is a critical 21st-century utility. Loveland is in a strong position to be able to build a network for the entire city, but some of our neighboring towns and unincorporated areas are unable to do something similar on their own. As a community-owned broadband network, Pulse prioritizes community needs and collaboration. A partnership with the Town of Timnath can provide a win-win for both Timnath and Pulse.  

An example of a similar effort currently in progress is the partnership between Pulse and Larimer County. Our communities are working together to expand coverage, access grant funding, and service rural and fringe communities that may otherwise be overlooked. These efforts have brought service to the Sylvan Dale, Ellis Ranch, and Lago Vista areas.
