Residents in LqP County getting FTTH Feb 11, 2013

I was in Lac qui Parle County most of the week talking to some folks about their businesses and training other folks on how to develop websites and work on social media. While I was there I heard a fun radio ad on KLQP-FM: Farmers Mutual Radio Ad

They are signing up residents of Dawson for FTTH starting February 11, 2013.

Last time we checked in with LqP the construction was about 70 percent done (in November, 2012). As you may recall, LqP (through Farmers Mutual Telephone) received $9.65 million in ARRA funding to bring Fiber-to-the-Premise (FTTP) technology to Minnesota’s Lac qui Parle County. That was in August, 2010.
