(CASPER, Wyo.) – Aug. 29, 2022 – Bluepeak officially launched its fiber internet service today in Casper, Wyo. The milestone follows a previously announced investment of $24 million to bring Bluepeak’s high-speed fiber network to nearly 24,000 homes and businesses in Casper.
“The great folks of the Oil City have waited too long for fast, reliable, affordable internet service and we’re excited to be part of the solution for them,” said Rich Fish, Bluepeak’s CEO. “Our fiber-to-the-home network expansion here is owed to the great work and ongoing partnership with Casper city officials, who we’ve worked closely with every step of the way.”
Casper residents in the area east of Wyoming Boulevard and north of Westcott Drive will be the first to have service available to them, with construction moving south after that. Those interested can confirm service availability with their address on mybluepeak.com.
Casper native Mike Barrett was the first in the city Bluepeak connected a few weeks ago to test out the service before launch.
“Bluepeak has been a breath of fresh air,” Barrett said. “We’ve exceeded what our previous two providers – combined – said they could provide for bandwidth. We’re four or five times faster, since we’ve got Bluepeak.”
Before Bluepeak, high-speed internet was a challenge for many in Casper and across the Equality State:
- Wyoming ranks 43rd in the nation in internet coverage, speed and availability, according to broadbandnow.com.
- An analysis from highspeedinternet.com found that Wyoming residents pay more for each megabit-per-second (Mbps) than anywhere else in the country. Wyomingites pay a rate of $7.84 per Mbps, compared to just 63 cents for Rhode Islanders.
- A Wyoming Tribune-Eagle report from last year pointed out many in the state find themselves paying more for slower internet speeds and without any options.
Bluepeak dramatically improves the options for residents in Wyoming by providing fast, reliable, affordable internet to communities like Laramie, Sheridan and Rock Springs, with service already available to Cheyenne residents. That’s in addition to the other announced Bluepeak expansion markets in Missouri, Oklahoma, South Dakota and North Dakota.
Bluepeak features all-in pricing, where the price on the website is the price on the bill, with a minimum speed tier of one gigabit-per-second (Gbps) internet service at just $50 per month. With Bluepeak service, local residences and businesses get faster speed, equal upload and download speeds, and eero Secure, which provides whole-home WiFi and protects devices from online threats, ads and allows for customized content filtering.
Bluepeak is designed to provide the best fiber connection without the things that get in the way of great service — like red tape, hidden fees and slow response times. Those in Casper looking for more information can visit mybluepeak.com. Residents and businesses interested in service availability
