In April 2023, Vistabeam completed the deployment of fiber broadband service in Chappell, Nebraska, making it Vistabeam’s first fiber town. The completion of the project meant that roughly 600 locations in the town can now enjoy high-speed internet up to 1 Gbps.
This landmark construction for Vistabeam took eight months to complete between September 2022 and April 2023. Approximately $700K was invested into the community of Chappell, Nebraska, to ensure long-lasting high-speed internet access for its residents.
The completion of this project was one matter, but widespread community awareness was another. Thanks to the efforts of Shaunna Mashek, the Chappell Economic Development Director, the latter was done in a genuine and timely manner.
Mashek’s involvement was instrumental in helping Vistabeam expand fast, reliable internet services in Chappell, Nebraska. As a strong advocate for the Chappell community, Mashek’s endeavors helped Vistabeam connect with residents and businesses in the town and provide them with our extraordinary services. As such, Vistabeam has awarded Shaunna with the Broadband Champion Award, designated for her commitment to ensuring the availability of quality broadband internet in Chappell, Nebraska.
As part of Vistabeam's commitment to expanding services throughout rural Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, and Wyoming, we have established the Broadband Champion Award to reward community members who go above and beyond to advocate for better internet connection for their community.
