fiber optic

The Teton Broadband Project, which is installing 120 miles of fiber optic cable in and around Jackson, has announced it is nearing completion of the portion of the project on Teton Pass.  At the same time, Silver Star Communications crews continue to work on the Togwotee Pass component of project.  After all the fiber has been laid, the final step will be to install the facilities that provide the end connection to customers along the entire fiber route.  Then, businesses and residences along the fiber line can take advantage of cutting-edge technology available for high-speed, reliable broadband.  Silver Star is already providing service to key community institutions such as St. John’s Medical Center, the Jackson Hole Airport, the Town of Jackson and Teton Science Schools.  Silver Star officials say the 120 miles of fiber being installed is intended to provide access in the downtown business district as well as complete the Wyoming “survivability loop”.

  • Wish list season is upon us again - October 17, 2014
    Late October is a bad time of year for me. If I were independently wealthy, it wouldn’t be so bad. But I’m not. I’m a journalist, so it’s a little painful. It’s rough because this is when the Christmas catalogs start hitting the mailbox, and they’re chock-full of gear I wish I had. From the […]
