By 1998, Freeway was providing Internet connectivity, content, and consulting services throughout much of the lower peninsula of Michigan. On August 1st of 1998, Freeway sold the Internet connectivity business to Lansing based Voyager Information Services while retaining all Internet content and Web development service customers under the new name of Gaslight Media.

This included a complete wireless network migration for Internet services throughout Gaylord, along with delivering high quality broadband to the fiber network deployed by UCMAN.
