    Wyoming Senate File NO. SF0100

    In 2018, Gov. Matt Mead (R) signed legislation to expand access to broadband for rural residents by establishing funding mechanisms that local governments could use to pay for deploying public broadband infrastructure. The bill created a $10 million fund for building broadband infrastructure under the state’s ENDOW initiative. The original wording of the bill made any city, town or county eligible to receive money from the fund to pay for a broadband network.

    But after telecom companies weighed in on the bill, a substitute bill was introduced and passed by state lawmakers that made the fund only available to private businesses or public-private partnerships unless no private ISP responds to a request for proposal. The funding is only applicable in areas that are currently unserved by private telecom companies.
