Page 6 THE WALSH COUNTY PRESS WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER I 8, 2015 PARK RIVER, N.D. -- Polar Communi- cations recently announced that its fiber net- work is now 100% complete. For ten years the company has dedicated each construction season to bringing fiber to every residence and business in its service territory. "Building this network has taken a lot of planning and coordinating," said David Dtm- ning, General Manger/CEO of Polar Com- munications. "There is still void across the US in data infrastructure so we are very proud of our fiber network in rural North Dakota." Broadband was a luxtu-y in the late 90's, however is now a necessity for running a busi- ness. Fiber optic connectivity is the fastest and most reliable, which is necessary for the ap- plications available today. "Since starting this project in 2005, our goal has always been to bring our customers the caliber of service they will need in the future," said Run Steinke, Polar Communications Board President. "The team at Polar Com- munications has put us right where we need to be." The last phase of this project will include splicing and cutting over the remaining cus- tomers to the fiber network now that placing the fiber in the ground has been completed. The final work will continue through the spring of 2016.
