Owner Jim Jenkins is a graduate of the University of Northern Colorado who opened the doors to his Carbondale business in 1991. Twenty-five years later, he’s still helping people in the valley with the always-changing technology that’s a vital part of everyday life.

Just high-quality satellite internet, available in a variety of plans and prices.
Rifle is a town of about 7,000 people located on Colorado’s Western Slope. Situated on the banks of the Colorado River, Rifle abounds in natural beauty and countless acres of designated state and national forest. That makes it a popular destination for hikers, bikers, campers, anglers and hunters. Downtown Rifle is still home to many century-plus old buildings that further enhance its Old West feel. Founded in the 1800s, much of Rifle’s modern economy focuses on ranching and tourism, with some of Colorado’s most famous ski resorts only about an hour’s drive from town.
