WENATCHEE — The Chelan County PUD may turn to a slower but far less expensive wireless Internet technology to replace the five miles of fiber-optic cable that have been irreparably damaged in recent weeks under snow-laden falling trees along Lake Wenatchee’s South Shore. For the shore’s approximately seven full-time residents and 57 vacation-home owners, the switch to wireless would see Internet speeds reduced from the 25-or-greater megabits per second to the 12-to15-mebabits per second possible over wireless, commissioners learned Monday.
