[ARCHIVED] Mahaska Communication Group Announces Broadband Expansion to Newton

Mahaska Communication Group

The team at MCG is excited to announce that they are bringing their World-Class Service to the community of Newton.  MCG will make available broadband internet service with speeds up to 2 gigabits per second to every premise in the Newton city limits.   Customers will receive service from MCG that provides freedom from data caps, contracts, fine print, and introductory price jumps.  In addition, MCG will be providing internet service, television, local and long-distance telephone services to residential and business customers.  Business customers will have hosted PBX phone systems, advertising, and other services available to them. 

MCG would like to thank Newton and the community leaders for their time and commitment to bring fiber broadband to Newton.

The construction of the underground network will begin in early 2022, with an estimated build-out completion being late 2024 or early 2025.  MCG will follow a phased approach, allowing businesses and residents to receive services as they become available in their areas.

MCG will have a local office in Newton to house customer support, service technicians, and sales in Newton. MCG's expansion will bring a projected 12 new full-time jobs to the community.  To learn more and to pre-register for services with MCG, visit

"We are very excited to make available to the entire Newton community the communication services you deserve!” said Steve Burnett, Assistant General Manager at MCG. “We believe our actions will show we are not your ordinary communication provider." 

MCG was born out of a need in 2000 when our parent company MUSCO Sports Lighting had to overcome the local service provider's limitations. MCG's mission is to continue this tradition of providing reliable communication services and superior customer support that strengthens the economic vitality, social development, and overall quality of life in the communities we serve.
