Wyoming Broadband Internet
Residents of Wyoming have a long list of options when it comes to broadband or high speed internet connections. There are currently a variety of high speed internet service providers (ISPs) providing broadband connectivity through cutting-edge technologies like cable, DSL, satellite and T1 and bonded T1 connections. These technologies allow the user to do almost anything they want to on the internet, from emailing to sharing photos to downloading movies, at incredibly fast speeds. Today’s broadband internet services are affordable, reliable, and available virtually anywhere.
Delivered through the cable television networks infrastructure, cable internet is a broadband means of providing the home or small business consumer with an always-on internet connection. All that is required is to have access to cable lines, a cable modem, and an account with a cable ISP. Companies providing cable internet access in the state include Adelphia, Comcast, Sweetwater Cable, and Union Cable.
DSL — an acronym for digital subscriber line — provides broadband internet access through the regular telephone lines. However, unlike a dial-up internet connection, DSL allows for the user to simultaneously use a single phone line to be making or receiving phone calls and for surfing the Net, due to a technology that splits the line into high and low frequencies. One of the larer DSL ISPs in Wyoming is Qwest.
Broadband satellite internet gives consumers in rural America an option for high speed internet service. The connection is delivered through a satellite dish and a satellite modem, which transmits the data between the user’s computer and the internet. Satellite internet IPS include HughesNet, SkyWay USA, StarBand, and WildBlue.
T1 and Bonded T1 Lines
T1 and bonded T1 lines are capable of providing exceptionally fast broadband service to multiple users at the same time. Many small to large businesses utilize T1 or bonded T1 lines to get all of their employees online, uploading and downloading important information, without any lag-time or slowing or transmissions. MegaPath and Qwest provide T1 and bonded T1 lines in Wyoming.
