Similar communities have found the "sweet spot" scenario with 40 percent penetration and monthly user charges of around $70. e Estes Park Town Board of Trustees is expected to take action later this year. If the trustees decide to go forward with a broadband network, the Estes Park Light and Power infrastructure will be a great asset that the community can use to deploy services quickly. v Molly Gilbert is a senior marketing and communications specialist at Dura- Line Corporation.
