With our dedicated staff of employees, we are also a one‐stop source for our customers when it comes to, Network Consulting, Wireless Bridges, Emergency Broadband Services and Wireless Hotspots for large or small events.
Since our conception in 2003, we have played an integral role in the valley. Providing reliable high‐speed connections to large agricultural operations, serving the World Ag Expo, and Exhibitors. Supporting the Clovis Rodeo and the upcoming Kings and Tulare Counties’ Project Homeless Connect— these are but a few of our roles that define the socially responsible side of who we are.
unWired Broadband has a proven entrepreneurial record when it comes to smart growth. The company’s main growth in the past years was driven by several acquisitions (TheWorks Internet, QNIS, 10Base Networks, Central Valley Internet Project (CVIP), LemooreNet, VTL, and Madnet.
Our current footprint stretches from the northern edge of the Grapevine in the Southern San Joaquin Valley, east to Tracy Ca and North to the northern edge of Atwater, including many foothill communities east of the 99 corridor. Our growth goals include taking wireless services all the way up North to Roseville, while proliferating the 3.65 GHz WiMAX range, securing unWired Broadband’s position as the largest wireless provider in the San Joaquin Valley.
We have earned roughly 20 percent of the wireless market share in this region, with 60 percent of our revenue earned from commercial clients and the remaining earned from residents. In the past years, up to 90 percent of our new business came through referrals, a strong testimony to our deep level of customer loyalty.
