How It works
Through an ever-expanding network of fiber optic cable and microwave signal locations, Internet traffic is routed from these secure origination points throughout a network of repeater sites to be distributed to customers. These repeater site locations are often hosted on community water towers, grain elevators, or communication towers. At this time, these transmission locations are counted to be over 250 tower sites which serves hundreds of communities in western Iowa and eastern Nebraska, covering approximately 16,000 square miles.
