The Nation’s Largest Fixed Wireless Broadband Provider
Rise Broadband is the largest fixed wireless internet provider in the U.S. The company is headquartered in Englewood, Colorado. Rise Broadband’s parent company JAB Wireless Inc. was incorporated in 2005. Following its acquisition of Internet America in 2015, it began to market all branded services under the name Rise Broadband.
Rise offers fixed wireless broadband to residential and business consumers. Rise Broadband is available in 16 states to approximately 26 million people. Texas stands atop among all service states with the most coverage by population.
The technology behind Rise Broadband fixed wireless internet service works somewhat like traditional cable and fiber internet. Because, the backhaul connection to the internet is established via landline hardwired networks that are usually fiber optic. LTE wireless tech broadcasts the signal in a general direction. But, Rise uses focused point-to-point wireless devices to direct a strong signal to the subscriber’s end. This approach makes delivery of high-speed wireless internet possible in underserved areas. One big reason why Rise has earned a great repute for its services in rural America.
