Improving internet access
Monday, August 14, 2017
The Pew Research Institute found that rural Americans are twice as likely as their urban counterparts to never use the internet. Some of this discrepancy can be explained by lack of infrastructure. Thankfully, that’s not a problem in Goshen County.
Since the internet is an important driver of economic growth, ensuring the area has good internet infrastructure is especially important. Vistabean, a Gering, Nebraska wireless internet provider, opened a branch office in Torrington in May. The company has plans to establish broadband throughout Goshen County.
In addition to fiber, Vistabeam will be deploying two new types of wireless internet.
