CHEYENNE, Wyoming — Gov. Matt Mead will host an upcoming meeting of local officials and telecommunications leaders to talk about ways to improve broadband access in Wyoming.
Creation of a high-speed backbone for Internet connectivity in Wyoming will be on the table at the third annual Wyoming Broadband Summit in Cheyenne on Oct. 21.
Mead says the conference will continue to boost momentum for improving broadband access in the state.
Mead in June announced plans for a new fiber-optic line connecting Casper to the Colorado state line. The Casper Star-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/Wbkzvl) installation began in July and will be completed by early next year.
