It looks like Montana is becoming more connected to the modern world. Governor Steve Bullock just announced on Oct. 6 that T-Mobile is paving the way for spreading its high-speed wireless broadband reach across Montana. This will bring 4G LTE to a wider range of rural areas, reaching out to about 1.1 million people of both Montana and Wyoming.
Governor Steve Bullock has shown his enthusiasm for this development, stating in his recent letter to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), “Increased access to high-speed internet and enhanced mobile coverage will further strengthen our state’s business climate and enable Montana businesses to thrive in a global economy and create more job opportunities for hard-working Montana families.”
T-Mobile has demonstrated its commitment to this plan with the purchase of three licenses from Charter Communications to allow them to build on this broadband connection in nearly the entire area of Montana east of I-15, as well as four northwestern counties of Wyoming.
This may be groundbreaking news for those who question living out of town for the sake of losing their beloved cell-phone and Internet connection. It looks like the joys of living in a quiet country-side home will be getting even better without having to sacrifice your high-speed reception.
