Connect, Powered by Mountain View Electric Association

Check Availability & Sign Up For Service

Mountain View Electric Association is excited to bring world-class fiber broadband internet to 100% of our membership. Our electric cooperative is partnering with rural fiber-optic leader Conexon Connect to build a fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network.

The FTTH buildout, encompassing nearly 5,800 miles of fiber, will ultimately reach Mountain View Electric Association’s more than 53,000 members in portions of Arapahoe, Crowley, Douglas, Elbert, El Paso, Lincoln, Pueblo, and Washington counties within 5 to 6 years.

Additionally, it will provide reliable, clear phone service and enable the benefits of smart grid capabilities to the electrical infrastructure, including:

  • Improved power outage response times
  • Better load balancing
  • More efficient electricity delivery
  • Other benefits

Landowner Easement Questions & Answers

As a part of our Broadband project, some MVEA landowners have received easement packets.

Below is a list of common questions along with the answers for landowners.

What is this easement for?

This easement addresses the addition of a fiber optic line which MVEA will use to supplement its electric grid.

How is the fiber line going to be installed, underground or above ground?

While there may be exceptions, generally, it will follow our existing electric distribution infrastructure.

  • Underground fiber infrastructure will be built using bores and trenching
  • Overhead fiber lines will be installed on existing above-ground electrical infrastructure (below our electric lines).
Will there be a new pole on my property?

Only if existing infrastructure needs to be replaced or upgraded. MVEA’s electric distribution system, including more than 6,200 miles of energized line and 24 substations, regularly receives scheduled upgrades and maintenance as part of our focused effort to provide safe and reliable electricity to the membership.
