HBC to Bring High-Speed Broadband to Cannon Falls

For Immediate Release (8/12/2016)

Cannon Falls, MN – Hiawatha Broadcast Communications, Inc. (HBC) has announced plans to bring high-speed broadband services to Cannon Falls.

HBC currently has a fiber-optic network in Cannon Falls and currently serves a number of businesses with high speed date. The company also has a data center located in the city, and last year, Cannon Falls became a major node on HBC’s fiber ring in southern Minnesota.

HBC president and CEO, Dan Pecarina, said “HBC has prepared to serve Cannon Falls for the past two years. Our Cannon Falls data center is now on our protected fiber optic ring. This will provide extremely reliable services to the homes and businesses including the fastest Internet, crystal clear Video and feature rich telephone.”

HBC will bring symmetrical Gigabit data services and telephone service to every home and business in Cannon Falls. In addition, HBC has applied for a cable franchise agreement and hope to receive approval to bring high quality TV and video services to residents.

“HBC is currently looking for office space in Cannon Falls to be used to provide local customer care and technical installation and support,” Pecarina said. “And as always, HBC expects to be a local business providing employment and being a great community partner.”
