In 2021, Gov. Noem announced that 24 South Dakota Connect Grants would be awarded to fund broadband projects to better connect unserved and underserved areas across South Dakota. Fortunately, TrioTel was one to receive an SD Connect grant. We are excited to be able to expand fiber-optic high-speed internet to those in Junius and NW Fulton. We will be adding an additional 63 miles of fiber to our network and 76 new broadband internet customers. We plan to have this expansion project completed by the end of 2021.
