Midco adds fibre redundancy on North Dakota

Sunday 24 July 2016 | 12:26 CET | News
Midco said it has completed construction on new fibre lines running its services from Williston to Bismarck in North Dakota. The 106-mile network extension connects Williston, Bismarck and Minot and provides a redundancy measure that would reroute network traffic should a fibre cut occur. After experiencing fiber cuts caused by third parties in recent years, Midco wanted to make the investment to ensure the region has the communications services it needs, the operator said. Midco's core Northern Plains Network stretches 8,400 miles across North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota.
