Visionary has completed installation of a second fiber connection on their network to support Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) users. The new fiber was installed in Casper, and will service the company's DSL users throughout Wyoming.

Fiber connections are necessary to support the high-speed, high-volume traffic generated by DSL users. Once installed, fiber allows DSL users to be routed to Visionary from any community where DSL is available. Currently, the company supports DSL in 19 Wyoming towns, with two more communities coming online by year-end.

"The new fiber will support an added 3,000 users," said Jeremy Malli, Network Engineer and self-proclaimed Alpha Geek. "This is a great problem to have. We need more fiber to sell more DSL."

Malli went on to say the demand for DSL has been great, mostly due to the company's support of Standalone DSL (DSL that requires no phone line). Typically, a DSL connection comes into a home or business on a telephone line, with the signals separated by filters. This allows the customer to use their telephone and DSL at the same time.

With Standalone DSL, Visionary delivers the broadband service to a home or business on a special line that is included in the cost of the DSL package. The company's customer is not required to have a working telephone line. Standalone DSL has proven to be growth product for the company as home users move from land lines to cellular phones.

Visionary began offering DSL in February of 2000, and installed the company's first fiber connection in mid-2002. Started as a dialup internet provider, Visionary's broadband experience has made the company a driving force in Wyoming's telecommunications frontier.

Visionary Communications is Wyoming's pioneering broadband provider, offering DSL and wireless broadband in 33 Wyoming communities. The company provides internet services in more than 90 towns and cities in Colorado, Montana and Wyoming.
