Middle Border Estates Possible Expansion

Mitchell Telecom is researching the possibility of extending our fiber network into the  Middle Border Estates Mobile Home Park the 2023 construction season. The expansion would mean another choice for services for residents and access to Mitchell Telecom’s fiber network.

The network will make Mitchell Telecom’s broadband internet and entire suite of voice and video products available to you and your neighbors with the same pricing and packaging customers across our network. It brings broadband connectivity up to gigabit speeds, managed Home WIFI, local content including MHS and DWU athletics on Channel 90, local service and technicians and bundles designed with flexibility in mind so customers can choose what they want and pay for what they need.

Before any network can be installed, we need to make sure there is enough demand for these products in your area – that is where you can help. We need 60% of the homes in your neighborhood to sign up for broadband service to make the project viable. When that happens, Mitchell Telecom will invest in the crews and infrastructure to make these services available. If we can achieve that number of sign-ups during the spring and early summer months, Mitchell Telecom would tentatively plan for fiber construction sometime this fall.

Don’t Delay

Please contact our team as soon as possible so we can get this project up and running in 2023. You can do this by completing the form you’ll see on this page (the form doesn’t sign you up for service, but tells us you’re interested), or by calling us and letting us know at 605-990-1000. Also, please spread the word among your friends and neighbors so we can reach the interest levels needed to start construction.

Every broadband, phone, and video product available on Mitchell Telecom’s fiber network will be available at your home.

Assuming there is enough interest from Middle Border residents and we reach a 60% take rate by early summer, We expect mainline fiber construction to start this fall and take a few weeks to complete. With fall mainline completed, installs will likely take place in late 2023 and possibly into January 2024.

Additional Note: There is a city sidewalk project scheduled for the neighborhood in 2023, Mitchell Telecom’s permission for construction is dependent upon that project being completed before our crews can start.

Preinstalls are done to prepare for the full install. During a preinstall techs will mount equipment on the outside of your house and run power and data cabling inside.

Fiber Drops are either knifed or directional bored to your house from our mainline fiber. Both processes are meant to have minimal impact to the ground around your home.

YES. All services, packages and bundles will be priced the same in town and throughout the expansion.

Expansion customers will not be required to sign a contract for any length of time. Mitchell Telecom has a one-month minimum for new services.

We ask every customer to sign up for broadband services to make the project viable.
