How to Participate

Project THOR is a local government owned, privately managed open access middle mile transport network. The network provides services to communities throughout NW Colorado. The network was developed to bring reliable, affordable, accessible broadband to member communities. One of the founding principles of the network is to allow local service providers and communities to deliver high quality affordable last mile broadband service to communities where Project THOR is available.

The network delivers point-to-point and point-to-multipoint (Port to Port) transport services and discounted IP bandwidth to communities and service providers at community Meet Me Centers and Meet Points.

Project THOR is built using carrier class hardware and software from Ciena and the network is designed to deliver fully resilient network services to all our Meet Me Centers. This allows us to deliver the high quality, reliable services needed to ensure customer satisfaction.

Project THOR has facilities at 910 Telecom in Denver for peering and interconnection with other Colorado public broadband and education network initiatives.

The network has established pricing for a variety of services. Pricing is available from individual Meet Me Center Hosts at multiple price points based on bandwidth and quality of service levels.
