Jevin Kasselman, Director of IT and Broadband for Wheatland Electric: “We believe that in order for residents and businesses in our communities to prosper, dependable high-speed broadband is a must. We’ve chosen RADWIN’s fixed wireless technology to improve our network and allow us to offer higher speed plans to our subscribers. The deployment of this new technology in our communities serves a crucial role in bridging the digital divide.
