Frequently Asked Questions

How will this affect existing Ag Wireless customers?

Please fill out a full application for service so we know what internet package you prefer. We are waiving the $50 fee for all AgWireless customers.

What is Fiber-To-The-Home (FTTH)?

Fiber to the home (FTTH), also called fiber to the premises (FTTP), is the installation and use of optical fiber from a central point directly to individual buildings, such as residences and businesses, to provide high-speed internet access. FTTH dramatically increases connection speeds available to computer users compared with technologies now used in most places.
