Arvig Invests $2.6 Million To Upgrade and Expand Broadband in Wadena

Arvig will invest $2.6 million to expand its fiber network in the city of Wadena. Construction of 31 miles begins this spring and is slated to be completed in 2022. Once completed, affected area businesses and residents will be able to select internet speeds up to 1Gb; and speeds up to 10Gb symmetrical are available.
“Arvig remains dedicated to bringing high-quality broadband services to the rural areas we serve,” said David Arvig, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at Arvig. “As our world increasingly relies on connectivity for work, school and staying in touch with family and friends, we are committed to providing our customers the best service available.”
In addition to constructing an expanded fiber network, Arvig also plans to upgrade equipment in the area. Leveraging existing infrastructure will provide customers with a premium experience, including speeds up to 1Gb much more quickly than other options.
