Good news for Long Prairie and a nice update from CTC…
Consolidated Telecommunications Company (CTC) recently reached an agreement with the City of Long Prairie to construct a fiber optic network to businesses and homes in the area, which will deliver Internet speeds up to 1Gbps (1,000 Mbps).
“We’re really excited about this opportunity” states Joe Buttweiler of CTC. “CTC has a long history of building fiber optic networks to rural communities in need of High Speed Internet services. Not only will residents and businesses benefit from the service, it will also help drive economic development in the area.”
CTC will begin construction spring of 2017, with many homes and businesses getting hooked up with service by the end of the year. The City of Long Prairie will bond to finance the network, with CTC leasing the network from the City.
In addition to offering High Speed Internet, CTC will also be offering residents phone services and business phone services including hosted phone systems and special access circuits.
