The Gigazone Comes to the City of Grand Rapids

  • Paul Bunyan Communications
GRAND RAPIDS, MN — The GigaZone is quickly becoming one of the largest Gigabit networks in the United States. While only activated just 9 months ago, Paul Bunyan Communications has announced over 2,100 locations in the Grand Rapids area have recently been upgraded and are now in the GigaZone.

"When we announced this initiative a year ago we made a commitment to bring the GigaZone to our entire service area which we know will take a few years. That said, I did not anticipate we would be able to reach so many locations so quickly. What a testament to our entire team. It's exciting, particularly for those who are included this year, but we will continue to do as much as we can to bring the GigaZone to all our members and communities we serve as fast as we can." said Gary Johnson, Paul Bunyan Communications CEO/General Manager.

A Regional All Fiber Optic Network

Paul Bunyan Communications has the region's largest and fastest all fiber optic network with over 5,000 square miles throughout most of Beltrami County and portions of Hubbard, Itasca, Koochiching, and St. Louis Counties. The Cooperative provides broadband high speed Internet services, digital and high definition television services, smart home services, digital voice services, and more.

The GigaZone is currently available to over 9,400 locations including all of the cooperative's service area of rural Park Rapids, Lake George, Trout Lake Township east of Grand Rapids, and areas of Bemidji and now Grand Rapids. GigaZone upgrades are expected by the end of the year in the remaining areas of Grand Rapids.

Paul Bunyan Communications recently mailed out information to the new locations in the Grand Rapids area that are now in the GigaZone and the cooperative has an online map available showing the active areas of the GigaZone as well as those areas that will be constructed/upgraded during the remainder of 2015.

GigaZone service options include broadband Internet speeds of up to 1000 Mbps — a gigabit. Members who subscribe to GigaZone broadband can also add PBTV Fusion and/or low cost unlimited local and long distance GigaZone voice service. All current service options also remain available to cooperative members within the GigaZone.
