Last fall, WesTel Systems announced that even in these hard economic times, they have decided to reinvest in their business and improve the technology in your home. Three companies' crews have been in Marcus working on this project all spring. These crews are staying in the local motel and eating at the local restaurants. This project is bringing extra business to town.

When the Fiber to the Home project is complete at the end of the year, there will be additional product offerings. The technology makes it possible to increase Internet speeds now and has an unlimited potential for the future. Careful thought, research and consideration has been put into this plan.

If you live within Marcus city limits and have not spoken to WesTel Systems about getting fiber installed in your home, they ask that you call them at 712-786-1181 to set up a time for a surveyor to visit your home. If you are not accepting the fiber optic line now at WesTel Systems' cost, they say it will cost you if you change your mind after the crews have left town. The cost could be $500 or more. There is no cost to anyone to have this done now.

"We believe this investment in the community will provide positive returns by allowing us to expand our Broadband capabilities and offer new services available via the Internet," says General Manager and CEO, Bob Gannon, "We want our customers to have the best services available."

WesTel Systems provides telephone, high-speed Internet, cable TV, computer sales and repair, networking and website hosting services for several communities in western Iowa and eastern Nebraska including Marcus.
