ACREBroadband is bridging the digital divide and bringing Iowa up to speed.
It’s not just you. People across the state of Iowa are overpaying for inadequate internet service. According to the FCC, there are 55 million Americans without access to “advanced telecommunications capability,” which is defined as internet service with 25Mbps for download and 3Mbps for upload.
In urban areas, this isn’t an issue because over 90% of residents in those areas have access to that standard of service. But only 47% of people living in rural areas have access to those same basic speeds.
Optimal Rural Network
We know there’s a problem, so how do we fix it? Why do we continue to pour resources into existing infrastructure that simply wasn’t designed to deliver service to rural users? ACREBroadband looked across the Atlantic for an answer.
Utilizing the same innovative network architecture that has been designed in the United Kingdom and Africa, ACREBroadband will finally deliver big city service to every single county, town and acre in Iowa. Our network of high-capacity cellular radios – and thousands of pylons across the state – ACRE forms a geometric grid that ensures comprehensive coverage no matter where you live.
The result is a rural-engineered broadband platform built to provide coverage focused on every rural acre. It’s infrastructure specifically designed to serve digitally disadvantaged Iowans, addressing both fixed and mobile connectivity issues. That means we’ll provide service for homes, business and barns, as well as connectivity on the road or out in the field.
ACREBroadband is looking towards tomorrow, too.
The technology that comprises our broadband platform is designed to accommodate growing capacity and will ultimately act as a stepping stone for future 4G and 5G technologies.
This isn’t about catching up. This is about staying ahead of the curve.
