Santel Communications Cooperative (Sancom) of Mitchell, S.D. has tapped Wave7 Optics Inc. to power a fiber-to-the-premise (FTTP) network deployment.
Sancom will use Wave7’s “Last Mile Link” platform to deliver IP-based voice, video and data services to residential and business customers in Mitchell, home of the famous “Corn Palace.”
Santel, which is funding the network build in part from a loan by the Rural Utilities Service, expects to complete the project by the end of this year. The new network will pass about 15,000 homes and businesses.
