Founded in Baldwin City, Kansas, RG Fiber is the leading internet service provider built specifically for small-towns.
To bring gigabit to the rest of us.
In April of 2013, this article put Mike Bosch’s face on the front page of Yahoo! News for attracting young people back to small town America. What the article didn’t mention was that Mike’s company was struggling because it had outgrown the local internet capacity.
Two months later, news broke that Mike was planning on building the internet infrastructure that the community desperately needed. Mike had researched fiber-to-the-home technology and believed the problem was that someone simply needed to build it in his town. He set out to be that person.
About 6 months later, Mike realized that the economics of the traditional model didn’t work for small towns.
Refusing to give up on small town America, Mike questioned every single component of the traditional model in pursuit of a new model specifically engineered for small towns. After 12 months, Mike created the industry’s first software-driven internet service provider for small towns.
In May of 2015, RG Fiber began to prove it can significantly outperform the legacy networks currently deployed in small towns. By the end of 2016, the results spoke for themselves.
