ROCKLAND, Maine -- Redzone Wireless has finished activating seven new fixed wireless broadband sites serving more than 10,000 new business & residential locations across Maine, with seven more nearing completion.
The seven new broadband service sites are Farmington, Dover Foxcroft, Calais, Machias, Fort Kent, Belfast and Fairfield, and serve portions of more than 25 communities. Redzone's next seven sites nearing completion are Windham, New Sharon, Alfred, Anson, Skowhegan and Ossipee, in addition to a new site providing expanded service in Bath.
Redzone's total Maine broadband coverage now exceeds 280,000 households -- representing 50% of all Maine homes. The new fixed wireless access (FWA) broadband network operates on FCC licensed 2.5 GHz wireless spectrum, and is considered one of the largest FCC licensed fixed wireless broadband deployments in the US, delivering 25 Mbps broadband speeds.
"Redzone Wireless remains on the forefront of wireless broadband innovation, combining regional fiber networks with the most advanced 4G and 5G wireless broadband technology to extend broadband to more underserved areas," said Jim McKenna, president of Redzone Wireless. "We are pleased with our 2019 expansion progress, and remain optimistic that we will reach our goal of activating 26 new sites by year end."
Overall peak usage on US cable networks continues to flatten out and even decline slightly, but sustained higher levels of usage on the upstream path have persisted, according to the latest data from the NCTA.
