IP + ATM Powered Network
and Spam Protection
Our network is laid out to minimize the number
of hops it takes for a data packet to leave your
and reach its destination on the Internet. Reducing
the number of hops lessens the number of devices
your information travels through. This means that
you have faster transmission times, or low latency,
as well as the added benefit of having fewer points
of potential failure. For example, on our Iowa
network, our average statewide latency from your
local POP (point-of-presence) to our Internet
is under 30 milliseconds (ms) for a two-way trip.
What kind of uptime can you expect? For the most
recent 6-month period our network
backbone uptime was 99.731%. That translates into
less than 1 day of downtime per year.*
Smart Network Monitoring
We actively monitor our network from our network
operations center (NOC) to make sure
that it is optimally performing. In addition,
we perform preventative maintenance on a regular
basis to all of our network POPs.
Next Generation IP + ATM Powered Network
Experience the advantages of our next generation
network that utilizes ATM and IP to efficiently
manage data traffic, reducing overhead and increasing
throughput 19% to 24% beyond traditional
circuit-based frame relay networks.
Anti-virus and spam protection

Unlike other types of wireless communication,
such as satellite, the radio frequencies that
