Estherville Area Chamber of Commerce members went techy at Monday's Lunch and Learn at the Sleep Inn & Suites.
The session was sponsored by Mediacom.
Michael Burnham, Mediacom senior account executive, and Bob Zuzek, regional sales manager, told about the changes technology has had on the communications and information industry - whether it's for business or in the home.
With his 30 years in the cable industry, Zuzek said he's seen more changes in the last five than in the first 25. And it's impacting everyone.
As an example, Zuzek said about 90 percent of people start looking for real estate online. "It's all about information now," he said.
Whether it's health care, law or even ordering a meal at your favorite restaurant, technology is making a huge difference in people's lives.
Burnham pointed to Mediacom's 24/7 call center with live staff as a distinguishing factor between the company and others. He also lauded his local support staff.
"I have the best-run area anywhere in the company," Burnham said.
Burnham said Mediacom has invested $2.5 billion to improve and expand its broadband network.
