Overland Park, Kan – Nov. 5, 2020 – Twin Valley Management, a holding company for Twin Valley and ISG Technology, is announcing its plan to improve the technological capabilities of organizations in underserved areas of North Central Kansas. Twin Valley Communications is among the largest privatelyheld telecommunications companies in Kansas, and ISG Technology is a leader in IT cloud and managed services in Kansas, Oklahoma and Missouri.
This comes on the heels of Twin Valley being awarded $1.3 million of CARES Act and Connectivity Emergency Response grant dollars. Additional investment by Twin Valley of almost $900,000 has been committed to deploy a combination of fiber to the premise and fixed wireless broadband services. Twin Valley Communications will also utilize the CBRS spectrum that it won at auction.
“There are so many businesses, school, hospitals and local governments in these areas that simply don’t have access to the broadband needed to enable things such as remote work, virtual healthcare and distance learning,” said Ben Foster, president and chief executive officer, ISG and Twin Valley. “By combining Twin Valley’s broadband services with ISG’s suite of managed IT services and data center offerings, we’re bridging those gaps and providing a complete technology solution for organizations in rural areas.
The companies are focused on helping businesses in these areas adapt to the changing work environment the pandemic created. Bringing together broadband and managed IT services allows companies to stay connected and focus on their core business.
In addition to providing Gigabit service to businesses and households in cities that are covered by the 15-mile fiber optic cable build-out – hundreds of households will have fixed wireless broadband speeds up to 10 megabits per second. This infrastructure will pass through multiple cities and provide the foundation for future investment and even faster connections.
