The 1 Gbps service was first launched in Fargo, ND, last March, followed by other deployments in the Dakotas and Minnesota, most recently in and around Williston, ND, in December. Early deployments have used CCAP gear from Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO) and modems from ARRIS (NASDAQ:ARRS) and Hitron Technologies. Midco plans to add other vendors' DOCSIS 3.1 modems as they become available.

The company says Xstream Gig is now available to more than 80% of its customers.
