Midco has launched its DOCSIS 3.1-based Midco Gig Internet service in and around Lawrence, KS, including Lawrence, Basehor, Eudora, Tonganoxie, Bonner Springs and Linwood. The 1 Gbps Internet service is available to both residential and business customers.

"From a solo entrepreneur in Lawrence who requires significant bandwidth to a family of five in Tonganoxie who actively streams, Midco Gig Internet uses our state-of-the-art network to provide super-fast, reliable speeds through a modem," said Midco President & CEO Pat McAdaragh.

Midco started its DOCSIS 3.1 deployments last March in Fargo, ND, and has been expanding them steadily since. The company now offers DOCSIS-3.1-based gigabit in the majority of its markets in the Dakotas, Minnesota and now Kansas. Early deployments have used CCAP gear from Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO) and modems from ARRIS (NASDAQ:ARRS) and Hitron Technologies. Midco plans to add other vendors' DOCSIS 3.1 modems as they become available. The company also deployed remote PHY technology in Bowdle, SD, and three surrounding communities in April.

Midco has performed a number of upgrades to the Lawrence system since buying it from WOW! (NYSE:WOW) last January. Last September, Midco launched TiVo (NASDAQ:TIVO) service in Lawrence, and this January the company upgraded the system to all-digital video to free up bandwidth for the DOCSIS 3.1 gigabit deployment.
