Company Summary

In 2011, broadband Internet penetration for rural Americans was calculated to average only 50% (source: Pew) . Rural residences and businesses find themselves with either poor or no service to subscribe to. Major Internet-providers have focused on urban, suburban and village/hamlet-area markets. Unlike cellular and satellite services, Towne Wide Internet uses “super Wi-Fi” technology that delivers the federal definition of broadband.
