Draft of state broadband improvement plan released
SHERIDAN, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Broadband Advisory Council has released a draft of its plan to improve high-speed internet access across the state.
The legislation that created the advisory council allocated $10 million for broadband improvement projects, and the plan outlines strategies the advisory council formulated to make the most of that funding.
The Sheridan Press reports that the goal of the plan is to ensure every Wyoming business and citizen has access to high-speed broadband internet by 2025.
The strategies the plan describes for reaching that goal, though, are varied and flexible, based on the belief that no one solution will work for the entire state.
The council will take public comment on the draft plan until Aug. 20. The group will then meet in Lander Aug. 23 to finalize the plan.
