This could be a huge game changer for many folks here in the Bozeman area who want faster internet without paying a fortune.

Bozeman Fiber is a company that was started back in 2015 to provide fast gigabit fiber network to Bozeman businesses and so far has slowly grown but has been a huge success. The fiber is fast whether you are coasting the internet or downloading for your work and it's pretty affordable. We now have even better news.

Bozeman Fiber has announced that they have applied for a $65 million dollar Industrial Development Revenue Bond to help build out their fiber network not to just businesses but to Bozeman homes as well. That means your house or apartment could have some of the fastest internet speeds in America. That would be huge. The best part is that no risk or cost to the county or taxpayers, which will go a long way with many folks.

If you don't know city led fiber internet initiatives have been happening all over the country. From Colorado to Washington to Oregon, people have been getting fed up with the high prices and slow internet speeds from major companies. When you are in a household of a few people who use internet or Wi-Fi for all of their devices, the speed can drag.

With cities, like  Bozeman, setting up their own fiber internet companies they can offer competition to the big companies and provide better service to locals. They could start working on this project as early as spring 2022. The future is getting brighter for Bozeman and I am excited.
