Public Input Sought on State Broadband Enhancement Plan
Written by jordanmckamey on April 15, 2019
The Wyoming Business Council Board of Directors will consider updates to the Wyoming State Broadband Enhancement Plan during its quarterly meeting May 16 in Riverton and is seeking public input on the changes until April 26.
The proposed additions have been recommended by the Broadband Advisory Council, an 11-member board appointed by the Business Council to move Wyoming to a position of leadership in the new digital world by ensuring every citizen and business has access to affordable, reliable, redundant and future-proof broadband.
The Wyoming Legislature established the foundation for the advisory council during its 2018 session. Since then, the Business Council has hired a broadband manager, appointed the advisory council members, created a state enhancement plan, established a nation-leading internet speed test map and worked with providers statewide to bring fast, reliable internet to greater swaths of Wyoming than ever before.
