“Rural communities have long been the threads that hold our region together,” says Paige Pearson Meyer, Director of Public and Media Relations at Midco. “Midco cares about the communities we serve and invests in organizations that are lifting those communities up. Dakota Resources is a prime example of an organization that is committed to making smaller communities better through economic growth.”

Midco is a leading provider of reliable, high-speed internet via wired and fixed wireless technology. The company also delivers cable TV including MidcoSN (a regional sports network), voice, home security, data center and advertising services, plus wholesale networking solutions. By 2025, Midco will deploy 10G, the next great leap for broadband – while also expanding its fixed wireless network to rural areas. Currently, Midco serves 400 communities across the region. Many of these communities are rural, and Midco’s services are vital to keeping these people and places connected.

Midco takes great pride in being a community partner and that commitment was recently enhanced by acquiring a fixed wireless company. Fixed wireless will help Midco continue to close the rural broadband digital divide, allowing for smart farm technology and ecommerce.

“We want to meet people where they are. Our technology is here to strengthen our rural connections—and strengthening rural connections is exactly the purpose behind ruralX. Midco is proud to be a ruralX sponsor!” says Paige.

RuralX will be held June 19 and 20 in Mitchell SD at Mitchell Wesleyan Church. To find more information about speakers, agenda and registration, visit www.ruralx.org or contact tyrelle@dakotaresources.org.
