Governor Matt Mead's office on Thursday released information about the State of Wyoming and CenturyLink (formerly Qwest) agreement on a contract that will result in two-thirds of Wyoming's 88,165 students having access to Ethernet broadband at their schools before the end of 2011. Governor Mead said, "I am very pleased we were able to work out an agreement with CentruryLink to bring Ethernet to 13 additional Wyoming cities." Those cities are: Laramie, Rawlins, Rock Springs, Jackson, Riverton, Lander, Cody, Douglas, Gillette, Buffalo, Sheridan, Glenrock and Green River. Those that already have access are Cheyenne and Casper. Jeff Waters, vice president of CenturyLink Business Government and Education Services said, "Education is a key area of focus for CenturyLink because it is integral to developing productive and prosperous communities."

Steve was working at the terminal box that feeds Sheridan's Woodland Park Elementary School that will no doubt benefit from the Ethernet broadband when it becomes available.
