ALLO Communications Purchases Hastings Operations of Glenwood Telecommunications
Nebraska-based ALLO Communications (ALLO) (AlloCommunications.com) announced today the purchase of the fiber network and business customer contracts of Glenwood Telecommunications’ (Glenwood) Hastings, Neb. operations.
“ALLO looks forward to operating the fiber network to serve the business customers in Hastings with exceptional service and technology,” said ALLO President Brad Moline. We will be an active member of the Hastings community and will soon expand our fiber network to serve more businesses, and eventually homes, with exceptionally fast internet and superior telephone and television services. We are encouraged by the city’s recent approval to acquire utility poles that ALLO may be able to lease to build a network passing every business and home to create a world-class, gigabit city.”
Regulatory approval is expected from the Nebraska Public Service Commission in early 2018 for ALLO to begin operating the Glenwood network in Hastings, at which time Glenwood’s customers will begin migrating to ALLO’s services and network. Glenwood will continue to serve the Hastings’ business customers and operate the network.
“Glenwood Telecommunications has enjoyed serving the broadband and telecommunications needs of its Hastings business customers,” said Glenwood General Manager Stan Rouse. “We look forward to continuing to support Hastings customers during the transition and will also continue to offer our IT services and telephone systems in Hastings. Glenwood will also continue to serve its other communities, just as before, and expects to extend services to other areas in the near future.”
Existing business customers will be contacted by ALLO with information regarding the transition.
Hastings businesses not being serviced by Glenwood can contact ALLO at 402-834- 1401 for a customized quote and to discuss solutions. In the future, ALLO will announce the timing and services for Hastings’ residential gigabit solutions.
