In June of 2022, Vistabeam completed upgrades to its internet services with new state-of-the-art equipment. These efforts included a dark fiber back to its Gering headquarters, a fiber connection from Torrington to Denver, and gigabit-capable wireless connections in the business district.
Vistabeam’s commitment to Torrington extends beyond the business district. It installed new Tarana wireless equipment that can provide up to 500Mbps to all of Torrington. In addition, it acquired the broadband customers of Action Communications in 2022 and upgraded 12 towers in the area to support higher speeds and more redundant connectivity in the larger Goshen County.
The entire project lasted three years, commencing with the completion of the Fiber portion in 2020, followed by wireless upgrades in 2021 and 2022. The investment made towards internet access in Torrington and Goshen County, Wyoming, totaled over $1.5 million.
These enhancements have undeniably played a pivotal role in bridging the digital divide in Torrington. Yet, amid the collective progress, the efforts of one particular local have stood out to help Vistabeam effectively spread access to high-speed internet in Torrington.
