Mediacom brings fiber to 235 locations in Wykoff (Fillmore County)

ABC New 6 (Rochester MN) reports

Mediacom Communications announced on Tuesday that they completed installation of a new broadband fiber communication network in Wykoff.

The company says they built nearly five miles of fiber optic lines with gigabit internet services now available to 235 homes and businesses in the Fillmore County town.

Construction began in early summer.

Mediacom says they privately funded the $435,000 costs to build and activate the Wykoff fiber network.

The investment was made to provide local residents with substantially faster internet service options.

“Mediacom chose to make this investment to offer Wykoff residents the super-fast internet services we deliver to customers in other Fillmore County communities and throughout much of Minnesota,” said Mediacom Operations Director Zach Raskovich. “Gig Internet provides a large amount of bandwidth to a home network – allowing multiple users to surf, stream, download and game at the same time.”

According to Mediacom, Wykoff now joins the ranks of nearly 200 Gigabit broadband communities Mediacom serves across Minnesota.
