How it works.
Edge High-speed fiber optic cable provides high-bandwidth and low-latency connectivity to the Colorado mountains. Edge internet transmits internet signals from Denver to the mountains using fiber optic cables. These fiber cables run from Denver by digging trenches, laying down ducts, and laying the fiber optic cable in a protected underground environment. Once the fiber optic cable reaches the mountains it's connected to high frequency access towers. These mountain access towers house specialized equipment that convert the optical signals into wireless signals, which are then transmitted to repeaters located throughout Summit and Grand counties. The repeaters receive these wireless signals and then retransmit them to other repeaters or to individual users, allowing for a widespread distribution of point to point internet connectivity. With this system Edge internet signals are able overcome obstacles such as hills and valleys that would otherwise block the wireless signals.
