“MTI Wireless Edge’s antennas enable us to provide reliable high-speed Internet and digital phone service at an affordable, competitive price,” said Jeff Kohler, Rise Co-founder and Chief Development Officer. “Over the past ten years, we’ve worked closely with MTI to install its high quality state-of-the-art antennas which significantly enhance our network’s performance and reliability.”
Rise’s policy of maintaining open internet access for customers and content providers is unchanged in light of the FCC’s new network neutrality rules. The company continues to give subscribers full, unrestricted access to the information, education, commerce and entertainment they count on while protecting their privacy and providing full disclosure of terms of service and network management.
Rise Broadband, a member of the Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPA), has been named Telecom Service Provider of the Year by Fierce Telecom and Fierce Wireless in the annual Fierce Innovation Awards. The Fierce Innovation Awards “recognize and reward the best and brightest operators, service providers and vendors for their commitment to next-gen business and consumer offerings.”
Fierce Markets, a leader in B2B e-media in the telecommunications industry, has chosen Rise Broadband for its innovation and acumen in closing the information gap by establishing high-speed fixed wireless internet and digital phone service in rural and suburban areas often under-served by traditional wireline or cable carriers.
Rise’s selection highlights two key trends in the wireless industry: the growing interest around fixed wireless technology and the potential for wireless to cross the digital divide and connect the unconnected.
A national study from the Wireless Internet Service Providers Association (WISPA), of which Rise Broadband is a leading member, says the economics of fixed wireless make it the most cost-effective broadband solution for rural and other under-served areas because networks can be built and upgraded faster and at a fraction of the cost of networks based on DSL, fiber, or cable.
Telarus, a Utah-based technology services company with more than 100 data, voice, and cloud providers, now distributes Rise Broadband’s voice and data services throughout its nationwide partner base. “Our partners are always looking for reliable service providers to enable internet, voice and data services in markets which are not well served,” said Telarus CEO Adam Edwards.
Rise Broadband and No Barriers Warriors have selected 12 wounded veterans for the all-expenses-paid Rocky Mountain Veteran Expedition training program from September 23 to 30; helping veterans address personal challenges and eliminate obstacles as they rejoin families and communities.
Rise leases space on three city-owned structures and activates new transmission equipment; expanding home and business internet/phone coverage, speed and capacity in Blair and surrounding Washington County communities.
Rise Broadband’s small business and enterprise subscribers can now seamlessly collaborate across PGi’s all-in-one web, video, audio conferencing and streaming solutions; giving rural and suburban businesses the access to connect with the people and information they value most.
DigitalGlobe, Inc., the global leader in Earth imagery, announced an agreement to provide elevation data to Rise Broadband to rapidly verify fixed wireless broadband service availability to households and businesses in its market areas before sending installation teams into the field.
