Rate Adjustment

Rate Adjustment

NEWER, FASTER, CHEAPER 

Earlier this year, Wheatland Broadband hired a consultant, C.H. Guernsey, to prepare a study which examined the cost of providing broadband service.  This cost-of-service study reviewed each rate class and looked to see if each rate class was recovering their costs.  To continue to stay on the cutting edge of technology, we have revised our plans to serve today’s market more effectively.  

Beginning November 1, 2018 new plans will be implemented.   These new rate plans have been designed to fit today’s internet usage.  Overall, the number of plans have been reduced and combined. While some of the rates will see an increase in price per month, the majority of the plans will see a decrease in price. All of the plans that will see an increase will also see an increase in speed.  We recognize that any change in rates is very important to the members. This rate increase is necessary to continue providing the best possible service to our members. Wheatland Broadband is working very hard to provide you with the best service possible in our remote areas.  We are thrilled to be able to offer these increased speeds and excited for the future of the industry.  The charts below demonstrate the new rates that will go into effect on November 1, 2018.
