High-speed internet is making its way to more people in rural Nebraska.

Hamilton Telecommunications announced this week their plans for fiber optic lines installed into every home they service-both in town and out in the country, within the next three to five years.

It's the 'Fiber to Home' project.

CEO John Nelson says they've been planning this for about 10 years, laying the groundwork to provide the next generation of technology so everyone's on the same page.

"Particularly in an ag economy," said Hamilton Telecommunications CEO John Nelson. "There is the risk of a digital divide of the population in town having services that were not available to the essential businesses and farms in rural areas of service area."

Fiber optics will be wired into every home along with a modem once its all said and done. Their goal is to have their last customer done in three to five years. For more details, click here.
