Holes for Heroes

Nextera has been involved with the Holes for Heroes Ice Fishing Festival since its first event over four years ago. Holes for Heroes connects soldiers away from home with loved ones attending the Minnesota festival. The event also offers an afternoon of ice fishing, fun, and food to military members and their immediate families. Fishing for Life, a nonprofit organization supporting families and communities through fishing and outdoor programming, organizes and hosts Holes for Heroes.

Nextera has donated the Internet bandwidth used to connect men and women serving overseas with family members attending the event. “It’s an honor to help our soldiers connect with family in Minnesota through a live video feed,” said Greg Arvig, President of Nextera Communications.

What is VoIP?

Simply put, VoIP is a way of using the same communications protocol to carry voice traffic as the internet does for data traffic.

When you place a call on a VoIP network, your voice is digitized and broken up into “voice packets” that move across the network in a way that’s similar to data packets.
