Upon moving to a rural location where high speed internet services were very limited, and after trying out several options without finding a reliable, high speed connection, owner Nathan Leerhoff decided to take matters into his own hands. In 2009 he began by erecting a 110’ tower to make a connection to his computer store located in Perry, Iowa. Before he even completed the tower, he was gaining the attention of other residents nearby. Within a short period of time he was adding additional towers, and quickly outgrowing his internet supplier in Perry. In early 2012 he connected to a fiber optic backbone, decided to go full time with the business, joined forces with his father, and BTWI Wireless Internet LLC was formed. BTWI is continuing to add more towers to cover additional rural areas, and is expanding at an exceptionally fast rate.
