An inside look at Colorado Central Telecom's day-to-day operations.

Custer County – Westside Network Area – Equipment Upgrade Plan Update

The team at CCT wanted to take a moment to update you on our upgrade plans in your area.

Among other issues that were discovered upon our takeover of the Secom area network, we discovered many technical issues with the Towers (many of which have only solar power generation with battery power to the equipment), where the Site has too much equipment and power consumption than the batteries could handle.

The Network was designed in a way that when one side went down only a portion of the customers were re-routed (the others suffered an outage) and even upon re-routing the connections came to a crawl, as there was not enough backhaul bandwidth in the network to take on the overflow. CCT has been redesigning, upgrading and replacing equipment in this network starting as early as mid-January and we expect to have most of the larger and recurring problems resolved by the end of the third quarter, but upgrades will continue well into 2022.
