Midco says its network construction in Fargo, ND, is 85% complete. Winter weather has halted underground construction, but work on overhead lines is continuing. Midco expects to start activating residential and business services in downtown Fargo in January.

Midco plans to finish building out the last 255,000 feet of underground line when the city of Fargo lifts its construction moratorium in spring 2017, and to complete the entire Fargo construction project by Sept. 1, 2017.

The network is intended to support Internet and networking, cable TV and phone services as part of a multi-year investment in Fargo. Midco picked the Fargo metro area as the first market to launch gigabit Internet services in early 2017, with plans to expand gigabit across the Midco service area.

"It's really exciting to see this progress and hear from people in town how they're happy to have our services," said Clay Stephens, Midco's senior director of regional operations. "So far, with 85% of the project complete, we've built out more than 2.2 million feet of underground line and turned on 233 power supplies to deliver services to Fargo residents and businesses."
