NIOBRARA COUNTY COMMISSIONERS' SPECIAL MEETING NIOBRARA COUNTY, WYOMING February 8, 2019
The purpose of the meeting was to meet with Russ Elliott, State of Wyoming Broadband Manager to inform the council, mayor, and landowners and interested parties on what is happening with broadband in Niobrara County. Chairman Wade gave background information on why broadband is becoming a necessity in this area. CenturyLink is providing little to no service for residents in the Hat Creek area and landowners have experienced issues with the phone lines such as ghost 911 calls, lack of service, and/or no service for days. The idea behind using broadband would allow residents affected by CenturyLink's lack of service to be able to use Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP).
