As work on the space continues, local telecommunications provider 702 Communications has announced an entrepreneurial partnership with CoCo Coworking to deliver Gigabit Internet to the space. Gigabit Internet is one of the fastest Internet connections available, roughly 100 times faster than the next-fastest connections, making it appealing to tech companies and entrepreneurs who require reliable and fast Internet service.

Headquartered at 702 Main Avenue in downtown Moorhead, 702 Communications is a local telecommunications provider which has fiber optic facilities interconnecting all the inter-exchange carriers in Minnesota. 702 Communications provides services to the areas of Fargo-Moorhead, West Fargo, Wahpeton-Breckenridge and Dilworth.

Says Jim Walter, President and CEO of 702 Communications: “702 Communications is excited to provide Gigabit Internet service for another great entrepreneurial project. We have Gigabit Internet installed in the Fargo Startup House, and CoCo is a great addition to both our community and 702’s lineup. 15 years ago, 702 was a startup in the community and we’re happy to do what we can to help get new ideas and businesses off the ground.”

Emerging Prairie, 702 Communications, and CoCo Coworking are excited to provide this space and these cutting edge services to Fargo’s growing entrepreneurial community. For more information about CoCo Fargo and to apply for membership, please visit
