Bluepeak Internet Service Is Now In Laramie
“Two reasons [I chose Bluepeak]. It's fiber optic and the price point. It's a lot better speed for less money,” said Grosinger during the installation of their new fiber service this morning. “That sense of community from the Bluepeak crew so far has been pretty awesome. I did not expect that. Besides the technical side, having the community that's Bluepeak is pretty cool. It's icing on the cake."
Where in Laramie can you find Bluepeak?
Laramie residents in the area north of Harney Street and Grays Gable Road between 15th Street and Inca Drive, the area north of Downey Street between Ninth and 15th streets, and the apartment buildings east of Ivinson Memorial Hospital will be the first to have service available to them, with construction moving west after that.

“Fast, reliable and affordable internet has long been a challenge for people in Wyoming and the city of Laramie, so we’re excited to be a part of the solution for them,” said Rich Fish, Bluepeak’s CEO. “Our fiber-to-the-home network expansion is owed to the great work and ongoing partnership with Laramie city officials, who we’ve worked closely with every step of the way.”
