In September we brought fiber internet to life for more than 200 members in southwest Michigan. Nancy from Edwardsburg said, “The speed of this internet is amazing! All these years of waiting and hoping finally paid off. Thank you!” Alex from Jones was equally pleased, sharing “I am extremely happy with my new Midwest broadband internet services … I applaud Midwest’s effort to build new infrastructure in rural areas where traditional providers refuse to invest in upgrades. We should all support these efforts in making our lives better.”

We love hearing from our new customers, and sharing their comments with those who are so patiently waiting their turn.

Speaking of waiting, as we reviewed our previously-shared 2017 construction plan (North Dowagiac and Marcellus Zones), we realized we have room to squeeze just one more zone into the building year. So without further ado, we welcome the good folks of Mattawan to our 2017 build!

You’ve likely already seen some action up that way as we’ve been working on the backbone to connect our substations as part of our electric distribution system upgrade. That work will turn to fiber internet activity late next year as we anticipate installs beginning in the fourth quarter of 2017.
