Three Northern Minnesota Communities Get Affordable, Accessible Midco Gig

August 18, 2021 – Northern MN: Homes and businesses in three northern Minnesota communities will now have access to Midco Gig. Midco Gig is 35 times faster than the average high-speed internet and available at an affordable price.

“The current environment has made high-speed internet more important than ever before,” said Midco President & CEO Pat McAdaragh. “From distance learning to telemedicine, Midco Gig Internet uses our state-of-the-art network to provide super-fast, reliable speeds through a modem.”

For residential customers, Midco Gig Internet will provide a large amount of bandwidth to a home network - allowing multiple users to surf, stream, download and game at the same time. For business customers, Midco Business Gig Internet will deliver the internet capacity needed to support employee productivity and serve customers.

The three northern Minnesota communities include: International Falls, Littlefork and Ranier. Midco Gig Internet is now available in 95% of the communities Midco serves. It’s part of Midco’s ongoing promise to deliver services that enhance people’s lives wherever they live and work.

Earlier this year, Midco activated more than 200 additional miles of fiber to create a Northern Minnesota fiber ring that adds diverse network paths for both Ely and International Falls, protecting against fiber cuts and other unexpected disruptions of Internet and business connections.
