ACD.net has installed five distributed antenna systems and built a fiber network in Midland to improve Internet coverage in the region. Midland businesses will have access to fiber optics for powering desktop computers and the public can see improved cell phone coverage.
“The improved coverage ensures that there is substantial capacity increase on 4G wireless service to Midland, and will also result in improved broadband capacity for Midland,” said ACD.net CEO Kevin Schoen
Additionally, the new fiber optic infrastructure may be used for deployment of ACD.net’s gigabit Ethernet service to Midland businesses. ACD currently provides services to businesses, and is set up to extend service to certain residential markets in 2015. Fiber optic service
is 50 to 100 times faster than cable modem service and DSL.
The collaborative efforts between Midland city officials and ACD.net have led to this economic investment.
“Midland is one of the first cities in Michigan, but certainly not the last, to upgrade to the next generation of broadband,” Schoen said. “Improving broadband in all Michigan communities is a priority for ACD.net.
“People are making decisions on where to live and work based upon the technology infrastructure available to them. ACD.net’s mission is to bring direct fiber optic connections to all business and residential customers.”
