These “Lift Zones” offer free high-speed broadband connectivity and Comcast/Xfinity is planning on installing a total of 35 of these in Colorado and 1,000 of these across the country by the end of 2021. The pandemic and resulting remote access requirements brought about this commitment by Comcast/Xfinity and it’s meant to facilitate online activities such as online learning, job hunting or applying for jobs.
