Reliable and fast connectivity, including broadband, plays a significant role in enabling businesses of all sizes to reach a global audience. For small businesses, it can be the difference between success and failure. Nebraska businesses, large and small, are no exception to this and NebraskaLink is proud to be part of these solutions. In fact, NebraskaLink can provide connectivity to nearly all Nebraska communities.
In a state the size of Nebraska, ubiquitous connectivity is not an easy feat. The underlying question is often “how can this be accomplished”? NebraskaLink has placed many miles of fiber optic cable all across the state—over 2,500 miles of fiber in the last seven years. Not only were these facilities placed in major Nebraska Markets such as Omaha, Lincoln, Grand Island, Kearney and North Platte, but many of the thriving rural markets are served by NebraskaLink fiber as well.
Even with this aggressive growth, a single company working alone cannot fill all of the service needs across the state with a cost effective solution. This is why NebraskaLink has formed a robust network of strategic partnerships. Many telecommunications companies exist in Nebraska that provide excellent service to their end customers and NebraskaLink works with those companies to form service delivery partnerships. The key is to build a formal set of protocols and standards to ensure that the service provided meets the quality expectations of the end user. NebraskaLink staff works closely with our partners to define the policies, procedures and communication flow that must be in place to ensure that the customer receives the same high level service and aggressively competitive pricing they are accustomed to receiving from NebraskaLink.
By expanding the NebraskaLink footprint and working with these quality vendors, NebraskaLink enables customers in all areas of Nebraska to connect to key data centers or other sites as their business demands. These services are provided in a reliable, cost effective manner, eliminating the barriers that the lack of connectivity has caused for businesses in the past.
