Rural Wireless


Closing the Connectivity Gap with Hybrid-Fiber-Wireless Networks

Only 64% of rural U.S. households have residential broadband connections.¹

Traditional telephone companies like yours are evolving every day to meet your customers’ needs.  You are the one-stop technology service provider for your community, offering a wide-variety of services. From video to home protection and security; from data storage to computer repair—you are the partner that local businesses, schools, governments, hospitals, and other community entities rely on to deliver the high-quality, affordable services that improve their lives. 

The opportunity exists for you to rise to the challenge of solving the growing connectivity gap, pushing for wide adoption of broadband-based communications and deploying even higher capacity networks for your customers. Whether it’s legacy copper-only infrastructure not supporting the bandwidth needed, the high cost and complexity of fiber in the local loop, or the need to cost effectively meet CAF II requirements in underserving areas, wireline technology cannot deliver the bandwidth at a cost and deployment speed that meets your company’s current business environment.

Only 55% of people in rural areas have access to speeds that qualify as broadband.¹

With the establishment of the Rural Development Opportunity Fund (RDOF) by the FCC, an extension of CAF II, up to $20.4 billion will be invested in delivering up to Gigabit services in rural areas with poor or no broadband coverage. RDOF prioritizes higher performance speed tiers, as well as lower latency for ISP's. The three tiers are Baseline (≥25/3 Mbps), Above Baseline (≥100/20 Mbps), and Gigabit (≥1000/500 Mbps).

Whether it’s legacy copper-only infrastructure not supporting the bandwidth needed, the high cost and complexity of fiber in the local loop, or the need to cost effectively meet CAF II requirements in underserving areas, wireline technology cannot deliver the bandwidth at a cost and deployment speed that meets your company’s current business environment.
