Re: Gigabit Economy in Wyoming
jabailo, I think you are right.  I am working with economic development with several cities and a good city appears to have multi-industry portfolios.  But they are all becoming aware and have a high priority on "Gigabit Economy" value - almost as a backbone utility.  In addition, some cities are taking it further, ie Smart Cities, and building a technology/data ecosystem to attract and sustain new businesses.

Re: A Gigabit Economy in Wyoming
What makes a good city today?   Once it was having an ice free port or being near a river.  Then on a train line.  Today, perhaps it's being centrally located near a main Internet hub with lots of Gig lines for citizens to use!

Re: A Gigabit Economy in Wyoming
Jason, sounds like a smart strategy.  I believe those communities that develop the infrastructure and focus on a digital (Gigabit) economy will take the lead in attracting business and capital to the ecosystems they develop. 

I see this as following the pathway of the development of the western frontier with the railroads and then the roads - those who develop the infrastructure are at the forefront of development and have an edge.
