In a media release from the Governors office, Wyoming Governor Matt Mead states he is looking forward to the Wyoming Broadband Summit, which is to take place in Cheyenne on October 23. The purpose of the Summit is to showcase how broadband contributes to a better future. Governor Mead explains, “ Broadband access is part of the transformation of the economy. It is important to our education system, the way health care is delivered, and how services are provided by government.” Mead also states that the expansion of high speed Internet connections is essential for our citizens and businesses.

Summit participants will be encouraged to discuss the best practices in broadband expansion, network with Internet service industry professionals, meet leaders in the state, address broadband innovation and growth, and identify strategic actions to build a better broadband future. Business Council CEO Bob Jensen believes better broadband access means a better competitive edge for Wyoming when it comes to attracting business or helping our current businesses grow.
