DALTON, Neb.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 11, 2022--

Highline, which does business in Nebraska under the Dalton Telephone Company and Elsie Communications brands, today announced several grant awards under the Nebraska Broadband Bridge Act. Customers in west-central and southwestern Nebraska will now have access to real high-speed internet through Highline’s growing fiber-to-the-premise business (FTTP).

Under the Nebraska state program Dalton Telephone Company and Elsie Communications will be awarded more than $1.2 million in funding to build fiber infrastructure to provide Gigabit high-speed internet to underserved homes and businesses in Cheyenne and Perkins County (including Dalton, Potter, Elsie and Grainton).

With the addition of the Nebraska Broadband grant funds, Highline continues its mission to provide real high-speed internet to thousands of homes and businesses in Colorado, Nebraska, Kansas, Georgia, Michigan, and Texas. Highline partners with many towns, cities, and counties to bring gigabit fiber internet to scores of underserved, unserved, and unhappily served communities across the United States to close the digital divide.
