Check here to stay up to date on the efforts the county is making to improve internet connectivity.

Together with staff, council, and community input, we are taking steps forward in providing better broadband options for you. Opportunities for your input are coming soon. Watch for social media posts that may include coming to this page and learning how you can submit a broadband survey and internet service speed test.

Items of Interest: 

A survey was mailed on September 30, 2022, to a randomly selected sample of residents. The survey and instructions to conduct speed tests were sent by the County's consult, CTC Technology and Energy. The County contracted with CTC to move the community's broadband improvement efforts forward. The online survey and speed tests will open up to everyone in the community on October 14. 

Broadband 101:

Vocabulary we often use to talk about broadband includes "last mile" and "middle mile". Last mile simply refers to the internet cables (copper, coax cable, or fiber optic) coming from the street into your home. Middle mile, for Los Alamos, refers to the internet feed coming into the County from the outside.
Progress is slow, but daily work on these two items is resulting in steady movement forward. Funding opportunities don't always pan out and take a while to move through their own due process. At some point in the future, the county will have made some decisions related to options on how to proceed with broadband related projects. Once those decisions have been made, project plans will be communicated here, so everyone can follow the timeline progress.
