Unggoy Broadband, Northeast Iowa’s newest choice for rural Internet and phone service, announced Monday they are set to acquire Slingo Internet of Denver, Iowa effective September 14, 2015. The acquisition comes shortly after Unggoy’s most recent coverage expansion in the Waverly, Janesville and Denver areas.
Unggoy Broadband is a locally owned and operated wireless Internet service provider based in Charles City, Iowa currently employing a staff of 13.
