Fargo Becomes Midco's First "Gig City"

March 29, 2017 – Fargo, ND: Devoted to providing innovative services to the Northern Plains, Midco® has named Fargo its first “Gig City.” This means Midco is delivering service 35 times faster than the average high-speed internet to its entire Fargo service area.

“This is a monumental day in Midco’s history,” said Midco President and CEO Pat McAdaragh. “Due to our state-of-the-art network, we’re launching Midco Xstream® Gig to 16 communities in the Fargo-Moorhead-West Fargo area.”

For residential customers, Midco Xstream Gig will provide a large amount of bandwidth to a home network - allowing multiple users to surf, stream, download and game at the same time. For business customers, Midco® Business Xstream Gig will deliver the internet capacity needed to support employee productivity and serve customers.  

“Midco Xstream Gig is a significant investment in the region. Businesses often look to broadband availability when deciding where to expand. Our announcement today shows Midco’s commitment to technology and innovation, both of which are major economic drivers in the Fargo-Moorhead-West Fargo region.”
