Midco recently completed construction on new fiber lines in North Dakota running its services from Williston to Bismarck. The 106-mile network extension connects Williston, Bismarck and Minot - and provides a redundancy measure that would reroute network traffic should a fiber cut occur.

"It's vital that we provide reliable services to communities, homes and businesses in western North Dakota to help them thrive and grow," said Justin Forde, director of public affairs for Midco. "After experiencing fiber cuts caused by third parties in recent years, Midco wanted to make the investment to ensure the region has the communications services it needs."

Midco's core Northern Plains Network stretches 8,400 miles across North and South Dakota and Minnesota.
