The ALLO Story
In 2003, we decided that we deserved more from our communications providers. We were done with lackluster, expensive telephone and internet services, and customer experiences that left us dissatisfied and disappointed. We started ALLO because we believed our communities needed something better.
ALLO was founded in Imperial, Nebraska and has rapidly grown to meet demands for better communications services in many communities. Our first customers were our neighbors, making customer satisfaction not just local, but personal. Where other providers fall short, ALLO reaches further.
ALLO provides superior communications and entertainment services including broadband internet, phone, and TV with honest customer service for businesses and homes. Our fiber-optic technology keeps us (and you) moving forward, literally at the speed of light. ALLO is changing the standards for the industry, because we all deserve better service.
We provide greater access to the world through superior business and residential service with fiber-optic technology and exceptional support. We’re dedicated to delivering a drastically different experience because we see our customers as neighbors, not numbers. We’re thinking forward and we’re thinking big, so our customers and our communities don’t get left behind.
What is Fiber?
Fiber technology has revolutionized the way we connect our homes and businesses. Where copper cables used to be king, glass-cored fiber cables can literally move data at the speed of light, making them the latest and greatest technology. The fiber cable’s glass core means that connections are less affected by weather. And our fiber connects directly to your home or business. Let us repeat: you have incredibly fast, fiber-optic cable connected directly to your home or business (so you don’t have to share service with your neighbors) for the most modern connection available on the market.

How Fiber Is Installed
Before you even hear about ALLO in your town, we’re working with the city to design the fiber cable paths throughout your community.
We partner with local contractors to help us build the duct-work and infrastructure needed to make your neighborhood fiber fast. Markers, flags, and digging may be required. ALLO will notify you in advance.
Our splicing team accesses each splice vault and pedestal throughout the city to fuse the individual fibers that will eventually connect to your home or business. Then we test the speed of light as it passes through the fiber to make sure your connection is GIG-fast.
When you request ALLO service, our team will connect the fiber from the pedestal to your home or business in preparation for installation.
