Innovative Community Support: Nuvera and Clearfield Partnership Drives Efficient Technology Deployment

January 24, 2024


Navigating through the ever-changing landscape of technology, Nuvera has remained a beacon of connectivity and community support in the telecommunications sector. This local company has been more than a mere service provider; it represents a vital link for residences, businesses, and particularly rural communities in Southern Minnesota and Iowa, integrating them with the global network. Their partnership with Clearfield has notably enhanced their capability to deploy fiber-optic technology, furthering their commitment to serving underserved areas.

But how does a local company like Nuvera maintain its relevance and efficiency in an industry often dominated by large-scale players?  Glen Zerbe, the President and CEO and Kathy Lund, Senior Director of Regulatory and Customer Operations, as well as Larry Shepard, Manager of Network Operations, and Toby Hermel, Senior Network Manager at Nuvera, shed light on the delicate balance between embracing technological advancements and staying true to community-centric services.

“We’re a local company ruthlessly local in our support of our local people, people who answer phones, but we also work with local businesses, and we try and put the investment back into communities so that we have a thriving ecosystem,” they said.
