Eagan’s network signs third provider to serve local businesses

Just two months after signing their first provider, Pioneer Press reports that AccessEagan signed their third provider…

AccessEagan has signed its third telecommunications carrier, opening up new broadband options for local businesses.

AccessEagan is a 16-mile high-capacity fiber-optic network available to any telecommunications provider that wants to serve Eagan businesses.

Velocity Inc. joins Arvig and Frontier Communications as carriers on the wholesale network; the city owns the infrastructure, but private sector carriers provide all services.

  1. Congratulations to the City of Eagan for this nice project. Through their vision, they are ensuring a competitive and world class broadband environment for their business community. It would be very interesting to see a report on the pricing now available for various levels of high speed Internet for businesses in these business development areas and compare that to other parts of the metro area.
