Arvig is bringing fiber to the tower across Minnesota

Global Newswire reports…

Arvig, a Minnesota-based broadband service provider, revealed today that it has surpassed bringing service to more than 500 cellular towers across 13 states.

Arvig made the decision in 2015 to start working directly with the major wireless carriers as a backhaul aggregator. Utilizing providers such as Arvig helps the wireless carriers accommodate increasing traffic and improve the overall customer experience for now (LTE and 4G) and in the future (5G). The company deploys dark fiber infrastructure and lit service to macro towers as well as small cells.

In 2017, Arvig installed approximately 415 route miles of fiber throughout the state of Minnesota and beyond.

Dave Schornack, Director of Business Development and Sales at Arvig, said, “As the demand for bandwidth continues to grow, we are well-positioned to provide solutions for carriers because of our broad footprint across Minnesota and connections to other providers across the region.”
