As we wrap up 2021, let us start by expressing our sincere gratitude for the amount of interest you all have shown in bringing fiber to Atchison over the past year and a half.

During the past few months, our fiber flight crews have been busy installing services for the businesses and residents in the Downtown East fiberhood. The gates are open, and we are still boarding the Downtown East fiber flight!

Construction is still progressing for the remaining areas of phase one, which include the Downtown West fiberhood. The flight for Downtown West will soon be cleared for takeoff and customers will be boarding their fiber flight.

Our fiber flight crews have also been busy preparing the details for the fiberhoods in our phase two construction areas. We will be announcing our next construction phase in early 2022.


This month’s feature of a Rainbow team member who works in the Atchison area is Jerad Enneking, Business Solutions Manager.

Jerad has worked for Rainbow for the past 14 years. He began his journey with Rainbow in the customer service department before transitioning to the business department. When asked about his favorite part of working with Atchison businesses, he said, “The best part of working with the businesses is getting to know the people involved at each location. I enjoy learning about the unique needs of each business and finding the right solution that is tailored specifically for them.”

Jerad has been a lifelong resident of Hiawatha. His wife, Monica, is a kindergarten teacher at Hiawatha Elementary school. They have a daughter, Emerson, who is 6 years old. In Jerad’s free time, he likes to spend time with his family and spend time outdoors – especially if it’s fishing!

Our video production team put together a video for the St. Benedict Playground Ribbon Cutting.
