Combination will remain locally owned with substantial investment in local infrastructure in Platte County.

Wheatland, Wyoming, Sept. 7, 2022. Wyoming Wireless, Inc., an internet service provider based in Platte County, Wyoming, and owned by local resident and entrepreneur B.J. Axford, has reached a final agreement (effective Sept. 1, 2022) to partner with Mountain West Technologies Corporation, a Wyoming-owned and -operated internet service provider and technology company, for upgrades to its existing infrastructure to increase speeds and service capability for its customers.

Mr. Axford had the following to say about the partnership: “I have been proud to serve the Platte County community with our locally owned internet for 20 years. Given the environment that we faced and the need for increased speed and service, I had reached a point where we were going to need to make substantial investment 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 for us to continue to service our Platte County customers. Mountain West’s commitment to local ownership and local employment made them the right partner for me. I am excited to continue to work with Kyle Ridgeway and the Mountain West team to upgrade our network and provide new services in the area! I have agreed to remain part of the Company and to work directly with Mountain West to ensure this partnership is successful.”

He continued: “I would like to thank the Platte County community for all of the support over the years. It’s amazing how much Platte County citizens support Platte County businesses. I would also like to thank Joel Mckee, Richard McDonald and Jordan Ham for all the work and dedication to making Wyoming Wireless a success. Wyoming Wireless would not be here without them.”

Kyle Ridgeway, President of Mountain West, added, “B.J. should be proud of what he and his team have built. Mountain West is thrilled to partner with a great Wyoming entrepreneur and this partnership meets with our Company mission of putting ‘307 First’ and helping Wyoming-owned businesses remain that way. We are excited to work with B.J. to expand internet services in the Platte County area and provide additional investment and hire locally residing employees to provide greater speed and greater service with the same community-based mission we have around the state including in Casper, Mills, Evansville, Glenrock, Chugwater, Cheyenne, Torrington, Hanna, Medicine Bow, Rock River and Saratoga.”
