Boyne City, Michigan - GLE Partnership
WLC is currently partnering with Great Lakes Energy Cooperative in Boyne City, Michigan area building a fiber network to deliver high-speed internet and unlimited voice services to its members.
The energy cooperative is branding the service Truestream to reflect its focus on innovation, technology and loyalty to its membership.
Plans start at speeds of 100 MB per second and go up to 1 GB or 1,000 MB per second. The first homes were connected in 2018 in parts of Emmet and Charlevoix counties.
Construction plans from there will depend in part on member interest. The areas with the most interest will be looked at first for construction. Expansion of the fiber network will continue for several years, with the intention of reaching all parts of Great Lakes Energy’s 26-county service territory, as long as there is demand.
