Northeast Service Cooperative completes massive fiber optic project

It’s always fun to post an update like this from Hometown Focus

With nearly 1,000 miles of fiber optic cable laid over the past four years across eight northeastern Minnesotacounties, the Northeast Service Cooperative (NESC) Northeast Middle Mile Fiber Project is the largest broadband network of its kind in the region.

Good reason to celebrate.

A celebration to mark completion of the $43.5 million fiber optic network is at 1 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 30, at NESC headquarters in Mountain Iron.
