Countywide Broadband Company, WildStar Networks, launches website, pre-registration soon

From Louis E. Svehla, Public Information Manager, Board of County Commissioners

In May of 2020, Walton County contracted with WildStar Networks in design, install, maintain and run a fixed wireless broadband network that will offer high-speed internet service to all Walton County residents.

  Fixed wireless is the operation of wireless communication devices used to connect two fixed locations with a wireless link, i.e. building to building or tower to building. This will work by installing antennas on towers in strategic areas that will send a signal and connect to an antenna on a home that will bring Internet into the residence

  In order to provide information to the public, WildStar Networks has launched their consumer website,

This new website includes information about the service, the company’s pricing model  and map that provides information on when service is anticipated in certain areas of Walton County.

In addition, in the near future, the site will provide the opportunity for the public to pre-register for service.  This pre-registration will allow the company to contact those who wish to obtain service with an email when service is available in their area.

We invite the public to visit this new site and continue to monitor the page for updates on pre-registration.
