Grant PUD wireless network expands southeast of Moses Lake
Expansion will serve more than 350 customers

EPHRATA, Wash.— More than 350 customers in a three-mile radius southeast of Moses Lake near I-90 and Highway 17 can now subscribe to Grant PUD’s High Speed Wireless Network.

Customers in the location have asked the PUD for the High Speed Network wireless service. Their request has been fulfilled with the installation of a network hub that is now capable of providing fast, reliable Internet service to their homes and businesses. The southeast Moses Lake area is the fifth location to be served by Grant PUD’s wireless network, joining Quincy, Ephrata and Blue Lake and the Larson area of Moses Lake. This technology provides reliable, continuous network service of at least 7 megabits per second.

Customers can subscribe to the service by contacting one of the nine wireless Internet service providers listed at grantpud.org and asking to be connected to Grant PUD’s wireless network.

Grant PUD is building out wireless service to fulfill the demands of customers in rural locations who have asked for the rapid deployment of a reliable and fast network. The utility is conducting a survey of customers in rural areas of the county to prioritize where it will deploy new locations for the wireless service.
