Northland secures investor and initiates $50 Million Network Improvement Plan
To add new commercial services, 100 mbps internet service in all markets, launching 1 gbps internet by Q4 2019

On October 1st, 2018, Northland secured new investors that have agreed to fund a $50 million capital investment in network improvements which will offer 100 Mbps across their serviceable footprint and roll out 1 Gigabit services before the end of 2019. Northland also recently hired Ed Butler, a senior Commercial Services Executive with over 20 years of business broadband sales experience to lead the effort to expand commercial services to small and medium size fiber customers, school district infrastructure projects, rural hospital broadband services, utility and municipality fiber solutions, as well as wireless backhaul and enterprise business fiber solutions.

"We’ve received all of the necessary funding upfront to deploy the new network enhancements and we plan to invest the entire $50 million by the end of next year. We are excited to be able to offer 100 meg internet service across our footprint to residential and business customers in our community and we’re looking forward to testing a 1 gig service next year," said Joanne Bailey, Business Manager for Northland.

Additionally, Northland is singularly focused on small, medium and enterprise business customers by offering fiber broadband solutions to commercial enterprises across our market. Joanne added that, “We’re looking to partner with local municipalities and city organizations as well as enterprise-level customers to build solutions tailor made for their needs. Our customers have been asking us to address network issues and increase our internet speeds. As the demand for broadband usage grows, they have also demanded more bandwidth. We’re excited to be able to address all of their needs in the coming months. Construction crews are already working on the network and we are on a very aggressive schedule to have all the improvements completed throughout 2019."

Inquiries and questions can be answered at the Northland office located at 235 N. Creek Blvd or call Customer Service at (864) 229-5421 if you have questions about Northland’s upcoming upgrade work or about any of the services we provide.
