Aug. 31, 2023

MEADE, Kan. – While IdeaTek didn’t have a giant cardboard check, they delivered something even better – “Internet for Life” to Savannah Green of Meade, Kansas.

Green was recently announced as the lucky winner of IdeaTek’s “Internet for Life” promotion. The online summer campaign drew nearly 3,000 entries from across the company’s service area, which stretches from Emporia to Garden City.

Based down the road in Buhler, IdeaTek’s mission is to provide reliable and affordable high-speed fiber internet to every Kansas doorstep. The “Internet for Life” campaign reflects this belief in providing Kansans, including those in underserved areas, with the tools they need to succeed.

Green works at the local hospital and would like to advance her education online. IdeaTek’s high-speed fiber internet will help her do just that, she said.

“I’m excited for IdeaTek internet because it is going to help me and my husband further our education,” Green said. “We will now have better internet access and faster Internet access.”

Megan Shearer, IdeaTek’s vice president of talent, culture, and customer acquisition, emphasized the company’s commitment to fostering growth and advancement through high-speed internet and technology.

“Savannah Green’s story aligns perfectly with IdeaTek’s mission,” she said. “We are dedicated to providing internet access that not only connects people but also empowers them to achieve their life-changing goals and dreams.”
