ALLO Communications moves into two more cities

NEBRASKA -- A Lincoln-based telecommunications company says it plans to start construction of fiber networks in two more cities. 

ALLO Communications is continuing its expansion across Nebraska, announcing plans to add service in Grand Island and Kearney. 

The $60 million project will start later this year, after the company completes agreements with both city governments. 

It said it expects to hire 70 permanent employees to accommodate the expansion. 

ALLO says Grand Island and Kearney will be the first communities in Nebraska where 10 gigabit service will be available. 

The company said it expects to announce more expansions in Nebraska, Colorado and other states later this year.
