Wyoming is the least populous state in the nation, which is a big draw for those looking to live a quieter, small-town lifestyle – or to enjoy outdoor recreation on a large scale. Fortunately, Wyoming’s residents don’t have to trade access to high-speed internet to have the way of life they want, although satellite delivery may be necessary in more remote areas.

Wyoming internet at a glance
They call Wyoming the “Cowboy State,” and the wild West is a good metaphor for the internet here. While there is high-speed internet connectivity available to most residents of Wyoming, location is the key. Not all services are available in all locations, and some are intended to reach only certain geographic areas. This is, of course, due to the rural nature of the state and its small city sizes.
Prices will vary based on your location. Satellite service will require a receiving dish, which can be pricey, but may be payable in installments.
Internet availability in Wyoming
96.3% of Wyoming homes have access to the internet in some form.
The following illustrates the percentages of different types of internet available throughout the state:
Cable – 84.37%
DSL – 93.21%
Fiber optic – 13.86%
Wireless – 86.46%
Fastest internet in Wyoming
The fastest internet connection possible will likely leave you most satisfied, as a fast connection means quicker results when downloading large files such as graphics. It also gives you the best streaming performance, with less (or no) buffering of movies and videos. And online gaming demands a fast connection to be effective.
In Wyoming, you may not have the option of ordering the fastest connection speeds. They simply aren’t available everywhere. Cheyenne is your best bet, as it is served by both Spectrum, which provides nearly 1 Gbps and EarthLink which also claims 1 Gbps.
Also lucky: Those living in Green River, where AllWest offers two (pricey) 1 Gbps plans.
- AllWest: 1 Gbps
- EarthLink 1 Gbps
- Spectrum: 1 Gbps
Cheapest internet in Wyoming
Some internet users won’t have a need to stream video and may simply want to send and receive email and similar, non-data heavy uses. If that’s the case, an inexpensive plan may do the job. But slower service doesn’t necessarily mean a lower price in Wyoming. Because of the rural nature of the state, it’s not easy to find deals on internet service, and you may have to take what you can get. You’ll want to look for unexpected charges, such as installation, which may be waived with a contract, or a fee to purchase a satellite dish or fixed wireless antenna.
- Verizon: 50 Mbps | $40/mo.
- CenturyLink 940 Mbps | $49/mo.
*Pricing per month plus taxes for length of contract. Additional fees and terms may apply. Pricing varies by location and availability. All prices subject to change at any time. May or may not be available based on service address. Speeds may vary. As of 10/08/20.
