ALLO Communications will be delivering fiber-to-the-premise with 10 Gbps bandwidth to several additional Nebraska communities, with construction to begin in the spring of 2022, the company announced today.
Once construction is complete, Ashland, Milford, Seward, Sidney, and York will join 21 current Nebraska, Colorado and Arizona communities as part of the ALLO network. The company is currently completing fiber builds in the Nebraska markets of Columbus, Fremont, Grand Island and Kearney.
ALLO had committed to further building out its network when SDC Capital Partners invested $197 million in the firm in October 2020.
Once the new Nebraska buildout is completed, residential and business customers will have access to 10 Gbps symmetrical service and Wi-Fi 6 routers. Services will include internet, data transport, video, voice, and redundant connectivity to AWS, Azure, and other cloud providers. The company also offers phone systems.
“We have always had a big focus on our home state of Nebraska. We are excited to connect hundreds of thousands of Nebraska residents and businesses to our award-winning fiber technology while also bringing economic growth to each community,” said Brad Moline, ALLO president and CEO, in a prepared statement.
ALLO’s total coverage area has a population of about 800,000. The newly announced markets will increase that by about 25,000 to 30,000.
The largest of the markets ALLO announced is York, which had a population between 7,000 and 8,000 as of the 2010 census, according to Wikipedia. Seward and Sidney had populations between 6,000 and 7,000, while Ashland and Milford had populations between 2,000 and 3,000.
