Wyoming Wireless partners with Mountain West Technologies
The combination will remain locally owned with substantial investment in local Platte County infrastructure.
Wheatland, Wyoming, September 7, 2022. Wyoming Wireless, Inc., a Platte County, Wyoming-based internet service provider owned by local resident and entrepreneur BJ Axford, has entered into a final agreement (effective September 1, 2022) to partner to Mountain West Technologies Corporation, a Wyoming owned and operated Internet service provider and technology company, for upgrading its existing infrastructure to increase speeds and service capacity for its customers.
Mr. Axford said the following about the partnership: “I have been proud to serve the Platte County community with our local Internet for 20 years. Given the environment we were facing and the need for increased speed and service, I had reached a point where we were going to have to make substantial investments to upgrade our network. I was introduced to Mountain West, which is a locally owned and operated Wyoming company, and found them to be the right partner to continue serving our Platte County customers. Mountain West’s commitment to local ownership and local employment made them the right partner for me. I’m excited to continue working with Kyle Ridgeway and the team at Mountain West to upgrade our network and provide new services in the area! I have agreed to remain with the company and work directly with Mountain West to ensure the success of this partnership.
He continued, “I want to thank the Platte County community for all the support over the years. It’s amazing how supportive Platte County citizens are of Platte County businesses. I also want to thank Joel Mckee, Richard McDonald and Jordan Ham for all the hard work and dedication in making Wyoming Wireless a success. Wyoming Wireless wouldn’t be here without them.
Kyle Ridgeway, President of Mountain West, added, “BJ should be proud of what he and his team have built. Mountain West is thrilled to partner with a great Wyoming contractor and this partnership fulfills our company’s mission to put “307 First” and help Wyoming-owned businesses stay that way. We are excited to work with BJ to expand Internet services in the Platte County area and provide additional investment and hire locally resident employees to provide greater speed and better service with the same community mission we have throughout state, including Casper, Mills, Evansville, Glenrock, Chugwater, Cheyenne, Torrington, Hanna, Medicine Bow, Rock River and Saratoga.
