Great Plains Communications (GPC), a Midwestern telecommunications provider with a growing, privately owned 13,500-plus mile fiber network reaching 13 states, announced it has attained the MEF 3.0 Carrier Ethernet (CE) certification.

This achievement demonstrates the company’s conformance to rigorous specifications established by MEF, a global industry association of network, cloud and technology providers who together drive network transformation.
