Faster Internet on the horizon in downtown Durango, rural Southwest Colorado

Justin Davis, with SkyWerx, installs WiFi links onto street lamps in downtown Durango on Wednesday. The company soon will provide free WiFi along Main Avenue.
SkyWerx installed a microwave link over Wolf Creek Pass in November. A fiber-optic line does not exist over the pass and the Southwest Colorado Council of Governments would like to see one built to improve redundancy. But microwave links are cheaper.
