AVON — Traer Creek LLC and broadband service provider forethought.net will bring 1,000 megabits (one gigabit) per second fiber optic internet service to Traer Creek Village by the end of October.

"The goal with offering gigabit speed in the Village is to provide users with a higher-quality service from a speed, pricing, customer service and internet reliability standpoint," said Marcus Lindholm, manager of Traer Creek LLC. "With more people needing to connect to multiple devices, we sought out a provider that we believe will bring first-class service to the Village's tenants, customers and businesses."

As part of the agreement, forethought.net has guaranteed 99.99 percent service availability, which equates to a total downtime of roughly 52.56 minutes per year.

"We are designing our Village network based on advanced MPLS technology which can reroute around failures in a fraction of a second such that subscribers don't usually even notice there was a problem," said Jawaid Bazyar, president of forethought.net.

Traer Creek Village includes The Home Depot; WalMart Supercenter; Traer Creek Plaza commercial building; the Buffalo Ridge affordable housing complex and Eagle County Ambulance Response Station. For more information, call Erich Schmidt at 970-306-0313.
