High-Speed Internet for Michigan

Welcome to Michigan, the Great Lakes State, and the only state in the nation with two Peninsulas!

Highline was established to solve the internet problem for many unserved, underserved, and unhappily served households throughout Michigan. While we have started in Delta, Sanilac, and Menominee Counties, over the next 3-4 years, our blazing fast internet network will be available in every Upper Peninsula and Thumb county, serving over 50,000 households.

The End of Buffering Once and For All

If your household is constantly complaining about the reliability and slow speed of your current connection, Highline will solve that problem with our blazing fiber Internet service. Our current customers are connecting multiple tv’s, computers, tablets, gaming stations, cell phones, cameras to the Highline connection, and there is enough bandwidth to support every device connected to the new Wi-Fi 6 router we include with our service.

Our App also provides the ability to protect your home network as well as parental controls to manage and monitor in home use.

The UP's Teacher of the Month

Another amazing teacher was chosen for our Teacher of the Month program in Delta County— Traci Tardiff from Rapid River Public Schools!

Traci is a 1st-grade teacher at Rapid River and says every day is exciting with her students! Her love for her students and teaching is evident when she speaks about them. When Traci was asked what she likes best about teaching she replied “Seeing the difference in the students from the beginning to the end of the year!” After 29 years of teaching, this is Traci’s last year—she is retiring! 

At the end of this school year, you might see Traci and her husband out in the community giving back in different ways or traveling so please tell Traci THANK YOU, for all she has done to help shape the students of today into future adults.

This month, in the Thumb, we celebrated the launch of the Peck area cabinet.

We visited the Village of Peck during their planning committee meeting, answered some questions, ate some snacks, and committed to future sponsor opportunities.

We not only celebrated the launch of the Peck cabinet, we also announced the Village of Peck as our newest Smart Rural Community!
You can catch our Community Community Relations Team out in the Cass City area, letting our future customers know we have started construction.
If you haven’t aready seen our construction crew in your area, keep a look out for these signs.
These signs mean that there will be a pedestal placed close by and your home is more than likely eligible for service!


The Thumb's Teacher of the Month

This month we celebrate Shanna Henderson as our teacher of the month. Shanna works at Brown City Elementary School as a kindergarten teacher. She was nominated by one of her student's parents, and this is what they had to say: “Mrs. Henderson is a kindergarten teacher who goes above and beyond for her kids both present and past. This year she has 16 boys out of 25 students. They are a wild bunch, and yet she handles them with grace and charm. I could not ask for someone better for kindergarten for my son for even on his worst days he comes home with a smile because of her.”


The team attended the MTA Spring Education Conference in Traverse City this month. We were able to answer questions and make connections with board members from areas that we will be providing service to in the 2023 build plan.
