SHERIDAN, WY: Sheridan based Advanced Communications Technology (ACT) is pleased to announce that they are expanding their fiber optic network from Casper, WY to the Colorado border. With the help of Governor Matt Mead and the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT), ACT will utilize Interstate right-of-way for its expansion.
“Any time we expand broadband it benefits people and business. ACT is one of many companies operating in Wyoming. This means more options for Wyoming people and more access points for communities from Casper to the Colorado border,” Governor Mead said. “Wyoming used its right of way and ACT will build the line with multiple access points – this is a good example of a strong public-private partnership.”
ACT plans on starting construction in early August with the intention of completing the project before winter. Although ACT has existing direct connections into Montana, Idaho, and South Dakota, this build will provide another route in and out of Wyoming. It will also offer additional opportunities for broadband expansion in communities between Casper and Cheyenne.
“Expansion of our network south of Casper to Cheyenne is something ACT has been considering for quite some time. Through the efforts of Governor Mead and the Wyoming Department of Transportation, we are finally able to turn this project into a reality,” said ACT General Manager, Aaron Sopko. “Allowing companies like ACT access to Interstate rights-of-way, greatly reduces the time and expense of securing a route over any distance, minimizing what can be a fairly sizeable hurdle when considering such a project. Governor Mead has touted a need for broadband expansion since he took office and we appreciate him and the folks at WYDOT taking action to aid in accomplishing this goal.”
