Located well south of downtown Denver, the Denver Tech Center (DTC) is the traditional hub of Colorado’s cable and telecommunications industries. The DTC was designed back in the early 1970s, on prime real estate where I-25 and I-225, and a major fiber optic line intersect. Cable companies like AT&T Broadband and United Cablevision both got their start there, and today many large companies have a presence in the area.
