The Magnolia Road Internet Cooperative (MRIC) has been providing Internet service since 2001 to areas West of Boulder, Colorado including Sugarloaf, Magnolia, Coal Creek Canyon, Blue Mountain Estates, Nederland's Ridge Road, and Boulder's Lakeshore neighborhoods.
There is a $50 membership fee to join the coop. If equipment is needed, there is a $50 charge for the installation plus the cost of the equipment which ranges from $100 to $300 depending on what is needed. Service is $60 a month. Currently MRIC members should be able to get 10 Mbps during the day and 5 Mbps in the evenings from 6 to 11 PM.
We are also offering to upgrade current and former members to newer equipment for $75 in labor plus the cost of equipment, with some limitations for those with more complicated setups. The equipment ranges from $80 (if you have most of what is needed and only require one of the smaller radio units), to $200 (if your location happens to require the most powerful radio, antenna and you need mounting hardware, and cabling.
