Wind River Internet submits Broadband Development Grant application
The Wyoming Business Council received one Broadband Development Grant application for Fremont County. Below are the details of that application from the Wyoming Business Council:
Northern Arapaho Tribal Industries (NATI), doing business as Wind River Internet (WRI), is planning to implement broadband infrastructure through a Fiber to the Premise (FTTP) Internet Protocol (IP) based system, to 849 “Premises Passed” including government, education, businesses and residents within the boundaries of the Wind River Indian Reservation (WRIR).
WRI’s proposed FTTP services offer 1 Gigabit, low-latency FTTP terrestrial broadband services to residential and business customers that meet or exceed the FCC’s benchmark standard of 25 Mbps/3 Mbps.
The grant request is $3.7 million, with a $4.4 million match, for a project total of $8.1 million. The project would pass 45 businesses and 849 homes, providing broadband access or upgrades to 100% of households in the area.
