As we continue to expand our service area, MVTV Wireless is attracting some attention! Local media has recognized our commitment to bringing Broadband Internet Service to those communities that are currently unserved or underserved in southwestern Minnesota.
In the early 90’s, high speed internet access was thought of as a luxury. However, much like electricity and telephone service, it’s status quickly evolved to that of necessity.
As Citizen Publishing Company’s Dave Fjeld reported back on May 21st, 2014, in their Ag Editorial Edition:
Providing reliable and affordable high speed Internet service to areas that are otherwise unable to receive it is a key to MVTV Wireless’s success. To that end, the rural broadband service provider continues to increase its capacity so that it can provide speeds necessary to support today’s bandwidth demanding tools and apps, including eCommerce, home office workers, Facetime and Skype, Netflix, online learning and eHealth.

What sets MVTV apart from other providers is its culture, Foote said.
“We are a nonprofit, member-owned corporation made up of our members and stockholders who only pay a one-time fee,” she said. “Co-ops have continued to be successful in southwestern Minnesota because they focus on the needs of the members, not just return on investment. This sentiment drives our culture.”
The Fulda Free Press covered MVTV’s expansion plans in their Fair and Harvest Edition:
…more growth is being planned. “We’re looking forward to serving many new communities, including Lincoln, Nobles, Pipestone and Rock Counties in the very near future!” says Foote. The company has added several customer service representatives and technicians. Those technicians live within various corners of MVTV’s ever growing coverage footprint.
