Reference this page for resources and information about COVID-19 and the Archuleta County Broadband Services Management Office. The BSM Office understands that the needs of county businesses and residents have recently heavily depended on broadband services so this page helps to aggregate resources about broadband in the county.
Many residents of Archuleta County don’t currently have ready access to Internet services needed for distance learning and general connectivity. Please see the resources below for Internet Service Providers (ISPs) offering free or discounted access for at least a short period of time during the COVID-19 outbreak containment period (OCP).
