CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - About 200 industry professionals and state officials attended a summit highlighting Wyoming’s successes and challenges in expanding Internet speeds and access across the state.

The annual Wyoming Broadband Summit was held Tuesday in Cheyenne.

Gov. Matt Mead told the summit that the state has seen an incredible growth of its high-speed infrastructure in the past several years.

Mead says all 23 counties now have access to Ethernet circuits compared to just two in 2011.

But the governor and other state officials said there is work to do to make sure the state is best using and improving the technology.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1pABHDx ) that state leaders and private providers also stressed the needs to reduce regulations and to work together to increase speeds to the public.
