As announced in late December 2021, the City has entered into an agreement with Spectrum Mid-America LLC to design, install and operate high-speed broadband internet service for the residents of Wildwood. Completing the number one priority of the City’s five-year Strategic Plan, this partnership with Spectrum will deliver fiber-based, high-speed internet service to the unserved and underserved areas of Wildwood who have been waiting for this service for many years. The City is investing $6.75 million in this project - that come from recent federal stimulus funds - and the project is expected to be completed within twenty-four months.

October 13, 2022 Update

The City of Wildwood is pleased to provide this fourth update to the Spectrum internet project. This update includes Maps 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 depicting the next areas where Spectrum has notified the City that construction will begin. This update also includes the map entitled Total Project Area which denotes the entire project area for Phase 1 of the buildout as well as where each of the 10 maps fall within the total project area. Please note that Spectrum has informed the City that there will be a total of 16 maps that comprise the Total Project Area. Please also note that these maps are an approximation of the buildout area and may not exactly depict the boundaries of where construction begins and ends. If you have a question as to whether your street address is included in the buildout area, please send an email to Steve Cross at the email address noted below. The address is the key determinant as to which phase of the buildout your home may be in. Please also note that this project, to bring high-speed internet to the City of Wildwood, will be accomplished in phases. Phase 1 encompasses approximately 2,025 homes in the area noted on the map as the Total Project Area. Construction on Phase 1 began in September 2022 and is anticipated to be completed by the end of the first quarter of 2024. Phase 2 is comprised of approximately 225 homes, and construction on this phase is anticipated to begin shortly after the completion of phase 1. Additional addresses that are not in Phase 1 or Phase 2 are being accumulated and will be included in Phase 3.

Current estimates from Spectrum relative to the anticipated date for start of construction as well as anticipated date for internet service from Spectrum are as follows (Note: these dates may differ from those previously provided by Spectrum due to construction delays beyond their control):

September 1, 2022 Update

The City of Wildwood is pleased to provide this third update to the Spectrum internet project.  This update includes Map #5 which depicts the area where construction will begin in December.  Residents in this area could potentially have high-speed internet service available to them by the end of February 2023.  Also included with this update is a map of the total project area for phase one of the internet access project.  This map will help to identify the location of the five areas noted by Spectrum as the current buildout areas in relation to the total buildout area.  Please note that all homes within the shaded area labeled as “Total Area of Project” will be included in phase one of the buildout, to be completed within a twenty four month period.  Spectrum is continuing to develop the overall design plan of each location in Wildwood where they will be working and the timeframes for that work.   We will continue to share the location of each buildout area as Spectrum provides it to the City as well as an updated map of the total area of the project.  As with any project of similar scope, this timeframe is subject to change due to unforeseen construction delays.  The City will make every effort to update residents as to any changes in this schedule.

The City of Wildwood is happy to announce that the start of construction for high-speed internet in Wildwood is finally here! Construction will begin in Ward One along Wild Horse Creek Road from State Route 100, as depicted on Map #1.  The Spectrum construction team estimates that work will begin in this area around the end of July 2022, and that residents in this area could reasonably expect to be able to sign up for internet service by the end of September.  The next buildout area, as noted in Map #2, is expected to begin around the end of August 2022, with service potentially available to residents around the end of October.  The third buildout area is noted in Map #3, and residents should see construction begin in this area approximately the end of September, with service availability potentially around the beginning of December.  The fourth buildout area is noted in Map #4, with construction expected to begin by December, with service availability potentially around the end of January 2023.   As with any project of similar scope, this timeframe is subject to change due to unforeseen construction delays. The City will make every effort to update residents as to any changes in this schedule.

 Spectrum is continuing to develop the overall design plan of each location in Wildwood where they will be working and the timeframes for that work.  We will continue to share the location of each buildout area as Spectrum provides it to the City.
