San Antonio is a very small, rural community in the San Luis Valley. It's about 5 miles south of Antonito, near the New Mexico border. It's also in a low valley with trees that block reception from wireless broadband service offered in other parts of Conejos County.
But as early as next March, the community of 90 households and three businesses will be able to order gigabit internet service. This isn't wireless. Alamosa-based Jade Communications plans to run fiber-optic gigabit internet lines to every customer's home.
