Over the past year, Netunwired LCC completed construction of wireless broadband networks for the city of Arvada, Colorado. The wireless links were an effort by the city to address slow computer network speeds at the remote offices of: the Arvada Urban Renewal Authority, Majestic View Park visitor center, Lake Arbour Golf Course Club House, Arvada Police, West Woods Golf Maintenance, and Ralston House child resource center.
Slow computer network speeds at these remote offices meant that the Internet was also very slow – typically about 1Mbps. The cause of the slowness was city dependency on a legacy DS3 circuits with T1 speeds going to each office. At these sub-broadband rates, it was impossible to implement virtual servers and difficult to have uniform city IT network policies at these locations.
