Lighting up Escanaba. MBBS has recently turned on, or as they say in the telecommunications world... Light it up! Why? because the new MBBS phone and internet is a 100% fiber optic network. What that means for Escanaba is super fast internet, competitive pricing, and a huge upgrade for the community. Best of all its provided by a strong local company.
Todd Beauchamp of MBBS said “that the addition of fiber optic will allow the town to offer some of the best technology available anywhere in the state. As internet use grows, and businesses are spending more time on line they realize they continue to need more bandwidth, speed, connectivity, and fiber does all that. Matter of fact the upgrade is important for a lot of reasons, one being the continued increase of streaming, and online cloud based applications. I feel we are very lucky MBBS choose Escanaba to build this network. I look forward to seeing how much this will help businesses. I’m excited for Escanaba’s future.”
