Share Article

The company has installed ADSL2+ in Casper Wyoming, delivering up to 25Mbps of bandwidth to its customers. Visionary Communications is a rural internet provider in Wyoming embracing the newest broadband technologies.

Visionary Communications has deployed ADSL2+ in Casper, bringing the fastest broadband technology to Wyoming's second largest city. ADSL2+ is a Digital Subscriber Line technology that delivers broadband internet at eight times the speed of cable internet.

ADSL2+ allows the company to deliver up to 25Mbps of internet bandwidth to customers within a two mile range of downtown. The speed is the equivalent of 16 T1 lines, or 466 simultaneous dialup modem connections.

"Broadband is about advertising at this stage. Cable advertises they are faster than MOST DSL, and telephone companies advertise they are TYPICALLY faster than cable internet," says Brian Worthen, CEO and President of Visionary. "This technology forces cable and telco to add more disclaimers, because Visionary's DSL is the fastest broadband in Casper."

The company has also introduced a bonded DSL that allows a business to be served by eight lines to receive 16Mbps of synchronous DSL, meaning it is the same speed up and down. The bonded DSL has allowed the company to serve businesses with a fiber-like speed at a DSL cost. The company has had success marketing the new product to medical businesses that send high amounts of data.

Visionary first introduced ADSL2+ in January, the first company to use the technology in Wyoming. The company operates their own DSL and fixed-wireless plants throughout the state.

Visionary Communications is Wyoming's pioneering broadband provider, offering DSL in 18 Wyoming communities, and wireless broadband in 11 Wyoming communities. The company provides internet services in more than 90 towns and cities. The company is headquartered in Gillette, Wyoming.
