CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A Sheridan company plans to install a new fiber optic line from Casper to the Colorado border using the existing highway right of way.

Gov. Matt Mead announced Tuesday that Advanced Communications Technology plans to start installing the new line in July and have it done by early next year.

Mead says expanding broadband computer service will help people and businesses in the state. He says the new line will give communities along the way more points to access broadband service.

Aaron Sopko, the general manager for ACT, said in a prepared statement released by Mead’s office that the expansion will allow the company’s network to span the entire state. He says other service providers will also benefit from the fiber installation.
