Pixius adds Kansas service areas

Wichita-based Pixius Communications is offering broadband Internet service in two new areas in Kansas.

Service is available in the central Kansas communities of Canton, New Gottland, Galva and the east side of McPherson, as well as the northeast Kansas region near Paola, Osawatomie and east of Ottawa.

The new services come on the heels of a record 2009 of expansion and upgrades, said Pixius chief executive Jay Maxwell.

Four more service regions are in progress, Maxwell said.

The Pixius broadband program was launched in Wichita in 2002 and now serves more than 5,700 customers in Kansas and Missouri.
