About Air Link Rural Broadband

History of Air Link Rural Broadband

Casey, Vicki, and their kids.

Locally Owned & Operated Internet Service Provider.

"Welcome to Air Link Rural Broadband - Your Trusted Locally Owned & Operated Internet Service Provider.

Meet Casey Imgarten, the visionary behind our company. A proud graduate of Keytesville High School in 2001 and DeVry University in Kansas City in 2005, Casey embarked on his professional journey in the heart of Kansas City at Berkowitz Oliver, LLP. Here, he honed his skills in corporate law, providing invaluable technical guidance to the firm's attorneys, both in the office and the courtroom.

In 2008, Casey married Vicki Monnig, daughter of Aaron and Mildred (Boss) Monnig, and together, they settled in the vibrant community of Columbia, MO. Casey continued to excel, holding a technical position at the Boone County Courthouse. However, as they contemplated their future and the prospect of raising a family, Casey and Vicki made a life-changing decision: to return to their roots.

AirLink service truck

Upon returning home, Casey immediately recognized the pressing need for high-speed Internet access in rural areas. Inspired by this need, he meticulously crafted a business plan that would address this challenge. In 2011, Air Link Rural Broadband was born.

Thanks to cutting-edge technologies, Air Link Rural Broadband embarked on a mission that was once considered impossible. Today, over a decade later, what began as a humble endeavor in Casey's garage has blossomed into a company that proudly serves thousands of Mid-Missourians, connecting communities and transforming lives through reliable and high-speed Internet access.

At Air Link Rural Broadband, we're more than just an Internet service provider; we're a testament to the power of determination, innovation, and a deep commitment to our community. Join us on our journey as we continue to bridge the digital divide and bring the world closer to your doorstep."
