Expanding Internet Access in Fort Collins, Colorado
Fort Collins, Colorado: Don Dieckman
In mid-2023, Vistabeam completed major upgrades in Fort Collins, Colorado, and the surrounding areas of Larimer County. Vistabeam's latest efforts to boost connectivity in Fort Collins began with acquiring the wireless product of Front Range Internet Inc. (FRII), a wireless provider with over 25 years of presence in Fort Collins. The purchase allowed Vistabeam to consolidate resources and paved the way for further improvements to the connectivity in the area.
Vistabeam made substantial investments in upgrading all towers in Larimer County. These enhancements were designed to provide blazing-fast speeds of up to 500Mbps, ensuring that residents and businesses in the area can access robust and reliable internet services. The wireless upgrades began in early 2023 and were successfully completed in July 2023, marking a significant milestone in Vistabeam's commitment to delivering top-tier connectivity.
Amid the general advancement in Fort Collins, one person's contribution was particularly notable in aiding Vistabeam's successful expansion of high-speed internet access in Fort Collins and the wider Larimer County.
Don Dieckman, the owner of several towers in the Front Range area, played a pivotal role in expanding Vistabeam's services into previously unserved parts of Larimer County.
