High-Speed Rural Internet
Living in a small town or outside of town is a choice, not a limitation. With Midco Fixed Wireless Internet, we’re bringing reliable, high-speed connectivity to more rural areas – so you can connect all your devices without worrying about contracts or maxing out your data.1
What to Expect at Installation
What Is Fixed Wireless?
How It Works
Midco Fixed Wireless Internet relies on wireless signals and antennas, but unlike satellite, your antenna won’t be pointed at the sky. Fixed wireless internet uses point-to-multi-point signals, meaning your antenna will point at equipment connected to the Midco Network that is on top of a nearby water tower, elevator or other tall structure.
Faster and more reliable than DSL or satellite internet, fixed wireless technology enables us to bring high-speed internet connectivity to customers in remote locations that we’re unable to reach with fiber and cable. And unlike satellite, your signal should not be affected by normal weather conditions – like clouds and rain.4
Reaching Ranchers – Wherever They Are
The location is remote and the snow is deep, but the bidding is fast and furious.
“If we didn't have fixed wireless, we'd just be limited as to what we could do," Carl Olson said. "It would be like trying to farm without having GPS – or not having a tool in your toolbox.”
As a Midco Fixed Wireless Internet customer, Olson Hereford Ranch can broadcast their bull sale online each February – reaching buyers down the road and across the country.

4 Connectivity can be periodically impacted by recent weather, such as wind or storms, which may periodically misalign antennas – as well as environmental factors, such as tree leaves growing in the spring, affecting the antenna’s signal to the tower.
