Alpine Communications will be making a major investment in a state-of-the-art network that will provide a fiber optic connection to all businesses and households in Garnavillo. At no additional charge, Alpine customers will be upgraded to the best communications technology available today.

Besides providing great sound quality and high levels of reliability, this new fiber network will enable Alpine to provide increased Internet speeds and other enhanced services. When asked about the decision to invest in a fiber network, Alpine general manager Chris Hopp said, “We are making this investment because we believe it will contribute to the economic vitality of our community and allow us to serve this great place we call home with the best communications network available today.”

Alpine will be upgrading the entire city of Garnavillo to fiber optics. Construction of the new fiber network will begin this fall and is scheduled to continue through the end of the year.

In order to prepare for the start of construction, Alpine field technicians and contractors are surveying the area. Hopp stated, “You may have already noticed an increased presence of Alpine Communications vehicles and technicians in your neighborhood. Over the next month, Alpine technicians will visit all homes and/or businesses in Garnavillo. All Alpine technicians will be wearing company shirts and have company identification.”
