Northwest Iowa — With the closing of schools, restaurants, bars and some other businesses due to the COVID-19 scare, many area residents were either working from home, surfing the web or watching streaming video, all of which requires reliable internet service.
KIWA talked to Premier Communications CEO Doug Boone and asked him if the added internet use had any major impact on the internet service his company provides.https://kiwaradio.com/files/DougBoonePremierInternet-1.mp3 
Boone says the extra internet traffic over the past week or so didn’t reach a record level for Premier’s subscribers.https://kiwaradio.com/files/DougBoonePremierInternet-2.mp3 
He says that Premier always strives to be a positive corporate citizen, and to that end has made some policy changes due to the current COVID-19 period.https://kiwaradio.com/files/DougBoonePremierInternet-3.mp3
