Adaptive Communications, Inc. (DBA Adaptive Internet) is a small family owned business, operating primarily in the Delta County, Colorado
area. When we moved here and bought our home in 2012 we contacted all the available internet providers in the area and none of them
could provide us with internet serivce. We ended up with the only option available for our home which was satellite internet which as
many of you know is completly unacceptable, slow and has data limits.
This was a huge problem for us as I worked out of the home doing software development and consulting and I had to have good reliable
internet without limits. My background is with computer software, firmware, networking and communications, so I understood the
technologies involved. There was no technical reason why Delta County residents couldn't have good internet service to their homes. We
decided we had to do something to fix this and so we looked into what it would take to bring real high speed internet bandwidth to Delta
County residents with the latest technologies that are available.
We started on this journey in late 2012. It took us over 1 1/2 years to figure out how to bring fiber optic quality high volume internet
bandwidth into the valley. None of the current phone or other service providers in the area had the capabilities to provide what was
needed so we contracted for a direct licensed microwave link from a fiber hub that goes direcly back to Denver to provide us with
dedicated bandwidth to the internet backbone. While this certainly wasn't a cheap solution, it was the only good solution to provided us
with the wholesale dedicated bandwidth that an internet business needed. This is what got us to the point that we could start offering
service and it provides us with a great growth path to increase bandwidth to us as we need it.
This was the bigest hurdle to bringing in good internet service to Delta County. With this solved, we could turn our attention to
developing service sites to provide internet service from. There have been lots of challenges and ups and downs as we have worked to
invest our family resources to this goal. We started providing service from our first service location in August of 2014. This was expanded in
April of 2015 when we opened our Grand Mesa Tower overlooking the Cedaredge valley. Since then we have been slowly expanding and
installing customers with our service. Just recently in April & May 2016 we have put up 3 new large towers. They are located in East
Orchard City, Doctors Mesa (West of Eckert) and West Redlands Mesa. We have also been working on more exciting tower sites as well
that will continue to expand our coverage area.
Everything has not been completly smooth and we have certainly run into our share of problems and challenges. However, we are
committed to providing the best internet service at the most reasonable prices possible.
We will expand on this history as time allows, but for now, that explains how we got to where we are now.
