MiBroadband was created November 1, 2018 through a partnership of three local cooperatives: MiEnergy Cooperative, Mabel Cooperative Telephone Company and Spring Grove Communications. Just as these cooperatives individually brought electricity and telephone service to rural areas decades ago, through MiBroadband they have launched the next stage of critical service by providing fixed wireless broadband to rural homes, farms and businesses in southeastern Minnesota and northeastern Iowa.
MiBroadband was created to provide broadband speeds to areas previously not served or underserved. These areas tend to be rural. The backbone for MiBroadband’s fixed wireless broadband service is MiEnergy Cooperative’s electric distribution communications network. As MiEnergy continues to build its private broadband network to communicate with its 43 substations and all residential and commercial electric meters, communications towers for MiBroadband will be added at the electric cooperative’s substations to expand broadband service.
Our Location and Employees
MiBroadband’s office is in Harmony and housed in the same building as Harmony Telephone Company, which is also owned by MiEnergy Cooperative, Mabel Cooperative Telephone Company and Spring Grove Communications. All MiBroadband calls come in and technicians go out from the Harmony office.
When you come to our office or see our employees out in the field you will notice branding on clothing and vehicles for both MiBroadband and Harmony Telephone Company. Our team has expertise in all things related to telephone, cable, TV and broadband and work on behalf of both companies.
