Internet Update & FAQs

Residential internet customers, we have a big & rather exciting update to share regarding your service.

As of March 31st, our long-time local partners at Stealth Broadband will have purchased our high-speed wireless Internet business, meaning youll now be in the capable hands of the friendly folks at Stealth!

We are thrilled with this development both for your sake (as Stealth intends to provide speed upgrades), and for ours, as our Internet service was always intended to fill the gap in local need for reliable Internet service until better options reached rural Nebraska.

Since 2004, our focus has been (and remains) on business technologies, but in 2013, we recognized the dire need for quality Internet in our rural areas, and we wanted to help. Having the technical know-how” to do so, we added our only residential service division, providing improved Internet via fixed wireless technology to a growing list of customers.

Its been a tremendous privilege to provide Internet services to rural Nebraska over the past 10 years. We feel our service accomplished its mission in bridging the gap” and are happy to pass the baton to a carrier capable of giving you improved service.

Stealth, a Nebraska-based local company, with whom weve partnered on many mutual projects over the years, is capable, experienced, professional, and eager to serve you. 

Were confident youll be happy with their service going forward, but we know you may have some questions, which we understand and welcome. Weve anticipated some of these and provided answers below!

Thank you, take care, and as you know, if you have any questions, our doors and phone lines are always open!

Your friends at Applied Connective Technologies


This all sounds great, but I have questions. Understandable. Fire away.

So are you being purchased by Stealth? Heavens no—98% of our work is focused on serving our business customers with unrivaled, professional managed IT, phone, physical security, infrastructure, and audio/video services and solutions. We’re only selling our Internet services division. We’re not going anywhere; we’re just getting warmed up! 🙂

Will this cause any disruption to my service? Nope! This is a silent transition. Your service will continue working without skipping a beat. As Stealth works to build out upgrades in the future, you’ll be upgraded to faster speeds to meet the increasing demand for broadband.

So I don't need to give my equipment back? No, you can keep everything right where it’s at. We’ve always been dedicated to giving you the best customer service, so the last thing we want is to cause you any inconvenience.

Who should I contact for support? You can reach Stealth Broadband’s support at (402) 347-1010 or email

What will happen with my April bill? Applied Connective will send our final invoice on April 1st. All April payments will be made to Applied Connective. Stealth will be sending out invoices for May services on April 15th.

What if I have automatic payment set up with Applied Connective? Good question! We’ll process your final payment to Applied Connective on April 20th for services ending 04/30. Billing and payment methods will be migrated to Stealth’s processor, and you’ll be provided instructions on how to access their online payment portal.

Anything else I should know about Stealth? Great group. No doubt they’ll be sending a welcome letter with all kinds of good info, but we’ll add that they’re known for their highly reliable service and state-of-the-art fiber optic backbone. You can find out more at!
