CTC brings FTTH to Ely MN

Hometown Focus reports

A state-of-the-art fiber-optic network in Ely’s downtown area is being installed by CTC and will bring affordable, reliable high-speed broadband service to 206 business and residential locations. The network is scheduled for completion by April 30. Iron Range Resources & Rehabilitation (IRRR) supported the project with a Community Infrastructure grant.

When completed, CTC customers in Ely will have access to: • Internet speed of up to 1 GB (1,000 Mbps), eliminating bandwidth limitations. • Customized packages to select from that include fiber internet, managed Wi-Fi and routing, and business voice.

“High-speed reliable internet is critical to Ely’s economy and quality of life,” said Harold Langowski, Ely city clerk/treasurer. “The new fiber-optic network will eliminate connectivity barriers for the city’s small businesses, current and future remote workers and residents, and our real estate market.”
