Pulse Fiber Internet – Our Mission to Serve

Said simply: Pulse exists to serve our communities. That’s the only reason this important utility operates.

In today’s hyperconnected world, access to reliable and high-speed internet is not just a luxury; it’s a necessity. From remote work to online education, telemedicine to e-commerce, the internet permeates every aspect of our lives. However, not all internet service providers (ISPs) are created equally. Although large corporations dominate the market, there’s a growing movement across the country advocating for and building community-owned, not-for-profit fiber optic internet utilities. Here’s why initiatives like Pulse are best poised to serve communities now and into the future.

Ubiquitous Access

Ubiquitous access means the opportunity to connect is available in the service territory for any home or business address that wants it. The Pulse network is built to provide a choice for broadband connectivity at every address, not only the addresses that it would be profitable to serve.  This ensures that no resident will be left behind from participating in online work, study, commerce, health, or social life simply because they don’t live in the right area of town.

Not For Profit

In a for-profit model of internet and cable service, the fiduciary responsibility of the company is to generate profits for shareholders. Those profits are made by providing internet and entertainment services. In the community-run model, the reason for being is to serve. The money received in exchange for service is dedicated to maintaining and improving the network and the services and paying for operations. Our focus is proudly on delivering the best experience, on the most well-maintained network, to keep homes and businesses connected for generations to come.


Pulse has done extensive local market research to determine what packages and price points would best serve our residents to ensure that every home and business is able to access the connectivity they need at a price that makes sense for their budget. Further, we partner in the community to help with digital divide issues – for example, Pulse has partnered with the Loveland Library to connect users to LinkedIn learning for free.

With a local home base, and staff that are part of the community, it is important for the organization and the individuals to give back frequently to make the place we all live a more comfortable home. In addition to bringing a critical resource to the community, our team also volunteers with local organizations such as Kids Pak, the Food Bank for Larimer County, A Little Help, and hosts blood drives with Vitalant. During the Covid-19 pandemic, Pulse was uniquely positioned to help bring underserved students online to keep them connected to their schools. In partnership with the Thompson School District, with a grant from the State of Colorado, Pulse brough children in the Lago Vista Mobile Home Community and Drake, Colorado online in under 9 months. This project received the National Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors (NATOA) 2021 Community Broadband Digital Equity Award.

For today. For tomorrow. For all of us.

In an age where connectivity is synonymous with opportunity, community-owned, not-for-profit fiber optic internet utilities are a compelling alternative to traditional ISPs. By prioritizing accessibility, reliability, affordability, and local control, these initiatives empower communities to shape their digital futures on their own terms. As we navigate an increasingly interconnected world, we are proud to harness the transformative potential of community-driven connectivity to build a more inclusive and resilient society for all.
