Wheatland Broadband Increases Speeds of Internet to Support Members Through Coronavirus Outbreak

Wheatland Broadband will be increasing service speeds temporarily for members currently on the Economy or Basic package through May 31, 2020 upon request.  Speeds will increase from 3/1 Mbps and 5/1 Mbps to the maximum speed available up to 10/4.

Members who may need increased speeds include teachers hosting web-based education tools, members who are working remotely, or households with multiple students trying to connect at one time.

To receive the increased Internet speeds, existing members will need to call 866-872-0006 or email billing@wbsnet.org.

“Our hope is that broader access and faster speeds will help all of our members access educational resources and more easily work from home,” said Bruce W. Mueller, Wheatland Electric’s CEO/General Manager.
