Connectivity is so important to economic development.
The Greater Cheyenne Foundation of the Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce has accepted a $150K grant from Microsoft to create broadband for public access downtown.
This is a pilot program that could potentially result in further investments in the future. This will cover the Cheyenne Depot Plaza and then potentially a portion of 15th Street. This means that businesses and activities in the plaza will also have access to this public WIFI. This is a huge win for non-profits that use the location for fundraising events. Those United Way Food Truck Rallies will be able to accept more credit cards, along with other vendor based events once the broadband is installed.
Currently the Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce is accepting RFP submissions from private enterprise businesses for the installation of the broadband. A vendor will be selected to own and maintain the infrastructure and the WIFI will be managed by the Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce after installation. This investment is a start of something fantastic for the greater Cheyenne.
