We continue to activate new customers on both our fixed-wireless and cellular data plans. Recent activations were completed along: Riverview Dr, Highland Farms Rd, Pentecost Rd, Chestnut Rail Dr, Frank Perry Rd, Whithers Way, Dalton Dr, Down Dr, and Red Hill Ln. Welcome to all our new customers!
Cedar Grove Farms: We have started the installation of equipment on the silo and our backhaul link to the North Hillsborough Water Tank to bring signal and bandwidth over to distribute out to the homes in the that area. We are still waiting on the remaining equipment that broadcasts the signal out to homes to be delivered to complete the project.
The Lloyd’s Dairy Barn : We have begun the testing and installations of homes in the surrounding areas and as we progress further we will be contacting residents to schedule our technicians to test for signal at their homes.
Schley Tower: Work has begun at the tower site and we have the ground work and permitting completed. Equipment arrived and we are scheduling our tower climbers this month.
As the Pandemic continues, there is a slowdown and shortage of equipment being manufactured, shipped and distributed. Limited availability of product worldwide has impacted our distributors from receiving product and lead times on shipments to fill orders and backorders have been delayed . As a result, it is impacting our ability to install equipment necessary to broadcast signal.to the neighboring areas We are working very closely and constantly with our suppliers to bring product in as soon as possible.
Service Installations are marked on this map. Note the pins south of 40, as well as a few outlying points north of 40 have been completed with our new cellular data service option while waiting for fixed-wireless.
We have connected homes in a number of areas with our newly introduced Cellular High Speed 4G LTE data service.
Many residents have contacted us to sign up for this cellular service while they are waiting for our Fixed Wireless service to be implemented in their area. We have had a strong response for this service and we continuing to survey and will be contacting those that have inquired to schedule a date to be tested.

A Reminder Message from Open Broadband concerning COVID-19
Staying connected even when apart
COVID-19 has brought many changes to our communities, affecting the ways we live, work and interact. But throughout these changes, one thing has stayed constant: Our determination to serve you and your internet needs in a safe manner.
Working in your community
As one of the many essential services responding to this national emergency, our work continues – even in those areas with stay-at-home ordinances. You may still see some of our field technicians working in and around your neighborhood. Their work is helping to ensure that residential communities, businesses and critical facilities have the internet they need throughout this time.
As a precaution, if you do see our workers, please avoid approaching them and their work areas. If there is a need to speak with them, be aware that they will be maintaining at least 6 feet of separation. We’ll also be keeping this recommended distance anytime direct interaction for essential services is required on customer properties, inside homes and businesses, consistent with CDC and other public health guidelines.
