More rural schools and libraries in Colorado will have access to the Internet, thanks to a $100 million federal stimulus grant to expand broadband service there. The state, which ranks poorly in broadband connectivity, will provide an additional $34.7 million for the work. "This project has the potential to provide a modern, 21st-century link to every school district, library and community that has been underserved because of rural location or challenging geography," Gov. Bill Ritter said.
