When you think of Colorado Springs typically the Olympic Training Center, Pikes Peak or Garden of the Gods comes to mind. Now we have a new distinction according to Forbes magazine... we're in the top 10 of the most wired cities in the country! As a Colorado Springs Realtor I'm beginning to ponder ways to creatively weave this into my marketing, the imagination runs wild! Somehow my thoughts keep drifting to Starbucks...
"Forbes magazine compiled a list of most-wired cities by considering the percentage of Internet users with high-speed connections, the number of companies providing broadband Internet in the area and the number of public wireless hotspots."
The top-10 cities are:
- Raleigh, N.C.
- San Francisco
- Washington, D.C.
- Colorado Springs, Colo.
- Portland, Ore.
