Governor’s Office of Economic Development release over $32 million to expand broadband

SIOUX FALLS, S.D.(KELO)- Last week the Governor’s Office of Economic Development released over $32-million in grants to expand broadband service.

Leap Communiciations will be doing some of the work.

Company Co-owner Tyler DeNui(duh-NIE) says it’s a real life changer for those who are connected.

DeNui’s company will be upgrading service to the area west and south of Sioux Falls.

He got into the business based on the personal experience of not being able to get high speed internet.

DeNui says it costs tens of thousands of dollars per mile to install the high speed lines.
