Final Reminder Notice from Southwest Minnesota Broadband Service: We would like to remind ALL Southwest Broadband Video customers that have not yet made the switch to Southwest Stream that your Video service will be ending as of July 14, 2018. After July 14, 2018, Southwest Stream will be the only Video service available. We encourage you to evaluate your ongoing Video needs and contact Southwest Broadband if you determine that you would like to be transitioned over to the NEW Southwest Stream Video service. The transition from your current Video service to Southwest Stream WILL NOT HAPPEN AUTOMATICALLY and requires your personal request and consent. If arrangements are made prior to this deadline, your current Video service will remain active beyond the deadline until installation is complete. If they do not hear from you by July 14, 2018, your Video service will end but all other services will remain active.

Where else can you get a great meal for $10 and have some to take home? ½ orders are $7.00. Don’t like crowds? Call your order in at 507-945-8321. Just add $.50 to these prices for an order to go!

You can do twice as much good!
