Welcome, 2022! We hope you’re excited for the new year and all the changes it may bring.

Last month we hinted at announcing our phase two construction fiberhoods. So, without further ado, we’d like to welcome the Bellevue CC and North Central fiberhoods to the construction phase of our fiber build!

Construction is wrapping up for Downtown West. Businesses and residents can expect installation to begin in middle-to-late January.

Business Customers in Downtown West

A business solutions flight crew member will contact you to schedule a time to go over your fiber internet plans and phone or hosted PBX options.

Residential Customers in Downtown West

Residential customers in the Downtown West fiberhood will receive an email from Rainbow with the subject line, “Now Boarding: Action Required To Take Flight”. In this email, customers will be directed to fill out a webform to select their fiber plan and options. Once the form is filled out and returned to Rainbow, a member of our flight crew will call to schedule your install.


This month’s feature of a Rainbow team member who works in the Atchison area is Taylor Jacobsen, Local Content Coordinator. Taylor joined the Rainbow team earlier this year. When asked about his favorite part of working in the Atchison area he said, “I enjoy being able to try restaurants for lunch that I would not have the opportunity to in a smaller area.”

Taylor grew up on a farm in the Hiawatha area. After high school, he attended Washburn University and received his degree in business marketing.

Our video production team was busy the month of December filming our serving area’s holiday festivities. If you missed the Atchison Parade of Lights on December 4th, you can stream it on-demand on our website.


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