Thank you to everyone who participated in our Grand Opening Week. We ended the weeklong celebration with our Atchison office ribbon cutting on May 7th. When asked about the office opening and bringing a fiber network to Atchison, Jason Smith, CEO/GM of Rainbow said, “’I’ve always said Atchison is just right for Rainbow. We like to play our part in supporting our communities, and we can’t wait to start lighting up fiber in this town.”

Beginning this month, we are going to feature one Rainbow team member who works in our Atchison office.

First up is Deanna Lanter, Business Solutions Representative. Deanna has worked at Rainbow for 11.5 years. Her favorite part of working with business customers is knowing that she is able to offer a quality product that businesses can rely on while delivering great customer service. Deanna was born and raised in the Atchison area and worked in Atchison for 26 years before joining the Rainbow team. When asked about returning to Atchison, she said, “It has been fun to reconnect with Atchison again!”

Deanna and the rest of the business solutions team will be visiting the businesses in the Downtown East and Downtown West fiberhoods in June.

We plan to install anchor institutions and the businesses in Downtown East and Downtown West fiberhoods in July with residential installs to follow.

The construction crews are continuing to hang aerial fiber throughout different areas for phase one of our fiber build.

Construction is still in progress for phase one. Amberwell Hospital is up and running on Rainbow’s fiber network! To read more about phase one, click here.

Rainbow participated in the Great Duck Race on May 22. A fun time was had by all – check out this event re-cap video that our video production team put together.

Be sure to stop by and see us at the next First Friday event. Our team will have yard games set up and will be handing out temporary tattoos to all the kiddos.

Stay tuned for another update in July! In the meantime, continue referring your friends and neighbors to submit their interest. You can also track your fiberhoods progress by typing in your address here.
