Mike Bosch, Founder/CEO of RG Fiber, built a software company in his rural small town that outgrew the community’s internet infrastructure. Fed up with the incumbents’ apathy, Bosch set out on a mission to find a way to build a world-class fiber network in one stoplight town with only 4,500 residents. After a year of R&D, Bosch launched RG Fiber’s software-driven fiber model in 2015 and brought gigabit speeds to Baldwin City. Since then RG Fiber has continued to innovate, reimagining the traditional telecom deployment model to better fit small town communities wanting to level the playing field with neighboring major metropolitan areas.
