UniCity Success Stories

The City of Wyoming’s goal is to utilize the Smart City technology to provide a quicker recovery post Covid-19. We want to better engage our visitors and residents by providing seamless event navigation, calendar updates, latest news in parks and recreation, restaurant and retail specials and deals, maps and walking directions, and DORA (Designated Outdoor Refreshment Area) guidelines and mapping boundaries.

Partnering with altafiber to bring high-speed fiber-based Internet to our members fulfills the cooperative’s mission of improving the quality of life in our communities and enhancing our electric reliability. We are excited to be working with a local broadband provider. We know altafiber is a committed partner in helping to bring fiber not only to our substations, but to our members and surrounding communities as well. The telecommunications industry is fast-changing, but we will continue to work with altafiber until the cooperative’s members have access to fiber-based Internet service.

Public Wi-Fi offers a new dimension to our urban core by offering a public service while also strengthening public spaces. It opens possibilities for distribution of information and broader community engagements.
