Three years ago, Cody Wian started Mifflin County Wireless out of a need for affordable and reliable high-speed internet at his new home in Mifflin County. Today, MCW is a thriving business that provides high-quality internet service to businesses and residents all over the county.
We're proud to be partners with MCW and to see the impact they've had on our community. MCW has helped to close the digital divide in Mifflin County, providing reliable internet access to people who previously didn't have it. They've also helped to boost the local economy by supporting businesses and entrepreneurs.
Thank you, MCW, for your hard work and dedication. We look forward to working with you for many years to come.
Mifflin County Wireless, a local internet service provider, announced that it has completed its recent expansion project to service more homes and businesses in Mifflin County. The expansion was made possible by the installation of new non-line-of-site equipment on the company’s towers and network updates.
The new equipment uses advanced non-line-of-sight technology, which means that Mifflin County Wireless can now serve many places that were previously unserviceable. In the past, the company’s service required a direct line of sight to one of its towers, which left many places unserviceable due to trees.
The Mifflin County commissioners supported this expansion project with funds from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) of 2021. Broadband infrastructure was one of the intended uses for ARPA, making it possible for more people to be connected to the world for vital services such as education, health care, communications, and work.
“We are excited to be able to offer our high-speed internet service to more homes and businesses in Mifflin County,” said Cody Wian, President of Mifflin County Wireless. “We know that reliable internet access is essential for many people, and we are committed to providing our customers with the best possible service.”
Mifflin County Wireless offers unlimited data plans starting at $50 per month with local support and service. The company also has no data caps or throttling and no long-term contracts. Monthly taxes and fees are included.
