More residents of southeastern Nebraska are getting high-speed internet

Thousands of residents of southeastern Nebraska will get new Internet service options.

Allo Communications announced plans to bring fiber internet to Waverly, while a company called Nextlink Internet said it would provide high-speed internet to residents of rural Gage County.

Lincoln-based Allo said last week that it will begin construction on the Waverly project next month and expects internet service offering speeds of up to 10 gigabits per second to be available for both individual and business customers by sometime next summer.

“We have received numerous requests for Allo’s services from Waverly,” said Dave Miller, Director of Ethical Compliance, in a press release. “We are very excited to offer our world-class infrastructure and exceptional customer service to residents and businesses in this growing community.”

With the addition of Waverly, Miller said, the Allo service will be available to more than 90% of Lancaster County residents. The company has served Lincoln since 2016 and has since expanded to a number of other cities in Nebraska, Colorado, and Arizona.

Texas-based Nextlink, which last year bought small ISPs in Lincoln, Waverley and Hickman, said it will provide 2GB of internet to about 1,000 households north of Beatrice over the next two years.

Nextlink said it will also open a permanent field office and warehouse in Gage County with several full-time employees.

The project will “help bridge the digital divide in Gage County and provide rural families with world-class fiber connectivity,” Bill Baker, founder and CEO of Nextlink Internet, said in a press release.
