KEYSTONE, Colorado, June 6, 2016 - Here at Mountain Connect, I caught up with Bruce Patterson, the chief technologist in Ammon, Idaho (a suburb of Idaho Falls), where he discussed the innovative open access network that is common online in this city of 13,000.

He and Jeff Christensen, President of Entry Point Networks, spoke about how software-defined networks, and open access networks, are the next step in our broadband evolution. And Chris Mitchell of the Institute for Local Self Reliance (Community Networks) spoke about an upcoming video -- to be released this week -- that features what's happening in Ammon, Idaho.
