ELEVATE FIBER HONORED AS NEW BUSINESS OF THE YEAR

JANUARY 24, 2018 – The Montrose Chamber of Commerce recognized Elevate Fiber as the 2017 New Business of the Year at its annual gala last Saturday. Elevate’s president, who is also the Delta-Montrose Electric Association CEO, Jasen Bronec, accepted the award, highlighting Elevate’s long-term vision.
 

In his speech, Bronec noted three main goals, “The first is to really help promote business and support business in our community but also teleworkers who want to live here […] and work remotely. We want to support teleheath. We want to connect our schools and our students so that every student has access in a home. And, we want to use it to help with the operations of DMEA and support renewable energy.”DMEA and support renewable energy.”
 
Powered by DMEA, Elevate Fiber is a wholly owned subsidiary of the local electric cooperative. It is a fiber internet company launched in response to community need. DMEA members expressed years of frustration about sub-par internet service. In response, DMEA began the process of researching options for expanding its own fiber-optic network to homes and businesses across its service territory in order to provide truly high-speed and reliable internet service. The result: Elevate Fiber launched on June 16, 2016.DMEA, Elevate Fiber is a wholly owned subsidiary of the local electric cooperative.
