(Bemidji, MN) (February 1, 2017) –The GigaZone has come to Deer River, Squaw Lake, Ball Club, Dora Lake, Inger, Wirt, Max, and Spring Lake!! As a result of continued upgrades to the cooperative’s all-fiber optic network over 3,150 locations now have access to GigaZone services including Internet speeds up to a Gigabit per second.
“We continue to make great progress on upgrading our network to incorporate even more members into the GigaZone, over 14,500 locations have been activated into the GigaZone since this past October alone. I’m very proud of all the hard work our cooperative has put in so far as we put our membership and region at the forefront of the very latest in communication networks. We will continue to do as much as we can to bring the GigaZone to all our members and the communities we serve as fast as we can.” said Gary Johnson, Paul Bunyan Communications CEO/General Manager.
The GigaZone is currently available to over 32,550 locations, making it one of the largest rural all-fiber optic networks in the United States!
