Bandwidth increase

May 1, 2019

The bandwidth purchased from the major Internet hubs in Des Moines, Kansas City and Chicago are all increased as consumers increase the amount of streaming video they watch over the Internet.

Hardware and software updates are installed in our West Liberty rural fiber nodes that were originally installed in 2002. These changes greatly increases the overall bandwidth we can deliver to customers, resulting in faster Internet packages, more DTV channels and HD channels. The West Branch network received similar upgrades in early 2014.
