Hays — Nex-Tech announced it has begun construction in the Bissell’s Point neighborhood north of Great Bend. Nex-Tech conducted a small groundbreaking ceremony, in alignment with the statewide stay-at-home-order, and gathered Great Bend Nex-Tech employees to celebrate the occasion. Bissell’s Point was the first to register the necessary interest level for the project and will be the first zone to receive Nex-Tech fiber-to-the-home services in Great Bend.  

Dustin Schlaefli, director of Customer Engagement said, “The reliability of fiber internet is more important now than ever. Fiber delivers a much faster and stable connection than any other technology. This allows Great Bend residents to reliably work and learn from home, conduct medical appointments via telecommuting and helps small businesses compete.”   

Nex-Tech is an essential business and continues to provide telephone, internet, TV Now and business services during the statewide stay-at-home order. Nex-Tech is still gathering interest in fiber services for the other zones in Great Bend. In January, Nex-Tech announced two new internet packages for those that pre-register – a  200 Mbps internet package for $59.95 and a 1 Gig package for $99.95. Great Bend residents should show their interest online at or by calling 620-792-3908.
