How It All Started
Originally as a resident of Elbert County, Colorado there were not many options for internet service and I wanted to do something about it. I'd been an entrepreneur for years, having owned my own business since I was 21. So in the summer of 2002, I decided to start up a wireless internet company and founded DirectLink.
I thought I could fill a need for High-Speed Internet in the rural neighborhoods. We started with one tower and a handful of customers. In 2002 High-Speed was considered good if you could get 1 mg down.
Since then things have really changed!
Now eighteen years later we are still growing and building out our infrastructure. We have a great crew that works for DirectLink, each and every one of our employees has had a hand in building the business to where we are today.
DirectLink now serves thousands of customers and service areas covering thousands of square miles in Colorado. Counties like Douglas, Elbert, Arapahoe and Jefferson, to name a few.
Now we serve not only the rural areas, but also metropolitan neighborhoods. Our customers range from small households to big businesses. We have become a dynamic company with a great reputation for taking care of our customers. Taking pride in what we do and what we have accomplished keeps us striving to perform and deliver a service that we can always be proud of.
We are proud to be a local family owned business, and to be working and living in the community we serve.
