Midwest Wireless upgrades coverage in Sioux Rapids area

Thursday, February 1, 2001

Midwest Wireless recently activated a new communication tower in Sioux Rapids to upgrade wireless service in that community and the area that surrounds it, including a large section of Highway 71 between Storm Lake and Spencer.

The new tower is part of Midwest Wireless' multi-million dollar network improvement project, which is bringing more than 11 new communication towers to the company's Iowa territory, including four that were recently activated in Sanborn, Ocheyedan, Rock Rapids and Ventura. "When Midwest Wireless acquired the 28-county Iowa network of CommNet Cellular last year, we vowed to significantly enhance service in our new Iowa territory. Since that time we've worked diligently to deliver on that promise and the upgrade in Sioux Rapids is an important step in this process," said Poole.

"We believe every community and every person deserves reliable wireless service, whether they're using their phone on a major city street or rural road," Poole continued. "The improvements we've made here will give those living and traveling in this area that superior service."

Beyond enhancing wireless service, the upgrade also gives area residents access to the very latest in wireless innovations, including new digital phone technology. "Digital service is definitely the wave of the future. Because of this upgrade, area residents can now take full advantage of this exciting technology," explained Poole.
