A Cable TV Upgrade is Coming
We're making network upgrades to lay the groundwork to deliver gigabit internet speeds to Kansas! The upgrade will convert all TV channels to an all-digital format by April 4, 2018 – meaning cable TV customers will need Midco-provided cable TV equipment connected to every TV to watch cable TV channels.
We'll start converting channels in March, so don't wait! But here's the good news: we're offering up to three HD digital adapters free of monthly leasing charges!1
We’ve invested $8 million in and around Lawrence to boost connectivity and network redundancy – and we’re continually working to enhance reliability. It’s just something we do.
Here are some more great things happening in Kansas:
Midco Sports Network®
We’ve commmitted to covering high school sports in northeast Kansas – including live high school games and the launch of the Midco Sports Tonight sportscast. Longtime Lawrence sportscaster Kevin Romary anchors the 30-minute show. Check out MidcoSN.com/Kansas, and follow our sports coverage on Facebook and Twitter.
New and Upgraded Services
New Customer Experience Center
We opened a new Customer Experience Center and staff office in Lawrence, designed to empower our Midco team members and provide better customer service. Find us at 2000 W. 31st St. in Suite C.
Coming in 2018: Midco Gig
This is a big one – gigabit internet in Kansas is coming in 2018. We can’t wait to bring you this affordable, even-faster internet option (available by cable modem) – which we’ve been launching around our service area throughout 2017.
Each year, Midco team members make a difference in the towns and cities they call home. We want to spread that pride in Kansas, encouraging our employees to volunteer in their communities – giving their time and talent where they really make a difference.
Last year, Midco gifted $90,000 to the Lawrence Public Library Computer Lab to update its computers and software – knowing that a vibrant public library makes a huge impact in a community. Midco also sponsors many charitable causes, economic development groups and community events across the region.
The Midco Foundation looks to give back by distributing grants to charitable organizations for special projects, facilities improvements, equipment and programs. This past fall, we supported projects like the Kansas United Youth Basketball Program and the Eudora Schools Foundation.
