About WIN

Thank you for your interest in WIN. We’re pleased to offer you our state-of-the-art fiber optic network in the Upper Midwest.


Over the years WIN has added over 5000 miles of fiber network, built thirteen SONET rings and added seventy new points of presence, many in rural Wisconsin. While we operate in the larger cities of Wisconsin, Minnesota and Illinois, a niche of ours has been in the smaller, under-served communities.


Our goal has always been to be the premier network provider in Wisconsin and eastern Minnesota. We operate a SONET and Ethernet network over 100% fiber optic facilities using Cisco, Cyan, Net Insight and Nortel optics and electronics. We offer private line services at T1, DS3, OC-n and Ethernet rates, in addition to wavelength services throughout Wisconsin and eastern Minnesota, and northern Illinois.

We know that service reliability is key for our customers. The majority of our Network POP sites are located in environmentally controlled telecommunication central offices. Our fully redundant SONET Rings provide the highest level of service reliability. WIN has over 100 highly trained technicians taking care of its network.
