Rise Broadband Receives $16.9 Million to Provide Internet Service Via FCC Rural Broadband Experiment Program

Rise Broadband is being awarded $16.9 million to deliver affordable high-speed Internet and phone service to unserved or under-served homes and businesses in five states through the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) Rural Broadband Experiment program. As one of the FCC’s award designees, Rise will ultimately offer wireless broadband service to more than 43,000 homes and businesses in rural parts of Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, and Texas. The award was made to the company’s Skybeam, LLC, subsidiary, which was rebranded as Rise along with the rest of the organization in May 2015. The FCC Rural Broadband Experiment [4] was created in 2014 to identify reliable, affordable alternatives of bringing high-speed broadband service to rural residents across the country. The program’s investment is $100 million; with no one bidder able to receive more than $20 million. The FCC received more than 575 bids from 181 companies. Rise Broadband was chosen based on the cost effectiveness of building its networks and by demonstrating a proven track record and technical expertise in delivering broadband service to rural areas.
