WOW! to light fiber broadband in new Minnesota communities

Oct. 4, 2023
The cable MSO will bring fiber service to more homes in parts of the state.

WOW! continues to deepen its fiber broadband presence in Minnesota. In the next few months, it will begin constructing its all-IP fiber network in Anoka and Ramsey Counties.

The company expects to add more than 85,000 new homes in Minnesota, increasing the number of targeted homes passed as part of the Greenfield expansion initiative to a total of 345,000 homes passed, reflecting progress toward the company's goal of reaching 400,000 new homes by 2027 and increasing its footprint by 21%.

Eleven new Minnesota communities will benefit from WOW!’s fiber expansion, including Andover, Anoka, Centerville, Circle Pines, Coon Rapids, Lexington, Lino Lakes, Ramsey, Roseville, Shoreview and White Bear Lake. WOW! has begun preliminary work in these areas.

Once services are launched, these communities can subscribe to the company’s fiber services, including residential symmetrical 5 Gbps Internet speeds. Subscribers will receive the necessary equipment upfront to get started on WOW!'s network and Wi-Fi at no extra cost, unlimited data, and no annual contracts.

Minnesota is just one of several areas where WOW! It is expanding its fiber broadband service. The service provider also conducts fiber builds in Central Florida, South Carolina and Michigan.

"On the heels of our new Central Florida and South Carolina market expansions and construction to expand our services in Michigan, our move into Minnesota extends WOW!'s footprint," said Teresa Elder, CEO of WOW!
