The Network News is VETRO’s quarterly roundup of resources, news, events and more.
Greetings from VETRO HQ! The Network News is VETRO’s roundup of resources, news, events and more. Let’s check out what’s new across the wide world of fiber!
VETRO Customer Highlights
VETRO’s customers have hit so many exciting milestones in the first quarter of 2022 – here are a few!
Congratulations to VETRO customers Tri-CoGo in Georgia and Circle Fiber in Southeast Missouri, who recently celebrated their 1000th customer’s installation. We are thrilled to support these high-impact providers in delivering some of the best broadband access in the country, and look forward to celebrating many subscriber milestones to come!
We asked Vermont-based Northwest Fiberworx Executive Director Sean Kio to answer five questions about all things fiber, and shared insight into their approach to building rural broadband and the planning that went into landing Google Fiber as the first retail ISP on their open access network.
Wire 3, an all-fiber ISP, recently announced that their network is live with redundant high speed service to Volusa and Brevard Counties on Florida’s east coast. The company has expansion plans to Indian River and St. Lucie counties in the works, and is gathering demand data for additional areas.
We’d like to give a special shout out to the Wire 3 folks for their cheeky sense of humor too – here at VETRO, we love a pop culture reference, so we’re delighted that Wire 3 offers “Ludicrous Speed” as their fastest fiber offering. Whether it’s in homage to the beloved Mel Brooks film Spaceballs or not, we hope that Eastern Florida goes to plaid while using their ludicrously fast internet from Wire 3!
At VETRO, we love our #fiberfamily. To keep up with all of our customer news, follow us on your favorite socials:

It has been an amazing experience working with our friends and colleagues at CostQuest Associates and Tilson Technologies to help the ConnectMaine Authority secure the NTIA’s largest grant award to date, slated to connect more than 11,000 homes and businesses in our home state of Maine.
Thanks for reading #fiberfamily!
It has been wonderful to reconnect with our customers, partners, colleagues and friends at live events – there is also always so much to learn. It’s the people behind the effort to connect the world with fiber who make our community special – and we can’t wait to see more of you at Fiber Connect, ISE Expo and more coming up in the coming months. So be sure to check out our events calendar on our web site, and let’s connect, as they say, IRL.
