New Systems Are Added to the Nova1Net Network

Hello Ipava, Astoria and Vermont!

Ipava, Astoria and Vermont Illinois have been added to the Nova1Net network. The cable systems serving the three Fulton County towns were acquired last year from a large nationwide company. The systems had been rebuilt to state-of-the-art specifications and had been well maintained. Their distance though from the company’s other systems precluded them from being connected to a larger network that would make advanced services like high speed internet, digital cable and digital phone possible.

Nova1Net acquired the systems from Mediacom and immediately set to work to link the systems to Nova1Net’s 150 mile fiber optic network that covers 6 West-Central Illinois counties. Fiber optic cables were buried and the work continued through the winter. Splicing and testing of the system followed and in the Spring of 2015 the new fiber optic system was activated with all of the advanced services that are found in much larger cities.

High speed Internet service, digital cable and digital phone services are all now available over a reliable and advanced network. Slow Internet, weather related TV outages and high priced phone bills are now a thing of the past for residents of Ipava, Astoria and Vermont. Nova1Net is proud of the services it was able to bring to this part of Fulton County and looks forward to being part of the community!
