Luxemburg banks on internet for growth

Village President Jack Seidl hopes developers and new businesses come to Luxemburg as quickly as the new internet speeds they will be getting in the near future. Cellcom announced this month the village’s acceptance of their proposal to provide fiber-to-the-premises internet, TV, and voice services to every address. With the new technology, users could see speeds up to one gigabit a second. Internet speeds have been a source of frustration in the community, and the county’s plan to install seven towers for broadband service would have very minimally impacted the village. Seidl hopes with more people working from home and businesses looking to expand that improving the area’s internet will help Luxemburg on their mind.

Seidl says Cellcom expects to begin work on the network later this spring with hopes of completing the project in 2022. Some homes and businesses could experience faster speeds through the service before the end of the year. Products and prices are expected to be similar to what is offered in other areas.
