Fiber technology is the future!

MIDTEL is replacing the majority of its copper network with direct fiber-based connections to your home or business. MIDTEL will be bringing fast, reliable, and affordable high speed fiber based internet to a large portion of our network due in part to multiple grants received from the New NYS Broadband Program.  The combined MIDTEL grant projects represent over $15,500,000 of State Grant money and MIDTEL private investment.

In addition to our existing fiber optic lines in Schoharie County, MIDTEL will be constructing over 600 miles of new fiber, passing over 3,500 premises through portions of the towns of Berne, Blenheim, Broome, Carlisle, Cobleskill, Conesville, Fulton, Gilboa, Jefferson, Middleburgh, Rensselaerville, Richmondville, Schoharie, Summit, Westerlo, and Wright.

Unlike other providers, MIDTEL can extend its fiber directly to your home or business to ensure the best end-to-end service from a single provider for Internet, Cable TV and Phone.
