Smart Way Communications is using LTE technology to expand its network coverage area to bring widespread broadband access across urban and rural areas of Tuscarawas, Harrison and Carroll counties, Ohio. The Wireless Internet Service Provider (WISP) will be using a unique expansion method called “LTE as a Service” (LTEaaS), provided by FiSci Technologies.
FiSci’s LTEaaS finance program allows internet service providers to build fixed-wireless LTE networks quickly and affordably due to an exclusive partnership with Baicells Technologies. The LTEaaS program grants operators access to Baicells disruptively-priced and technically innovative LTE small cells on a subscription basis.
“We chose the LTEaaS program from FiSci because it allowed us to structure our deployments without having to fully fund them up front,” said Ryan Grewell, CEO of Smart Way Communications. “Yes, there are other leasing options but none of them seem as integrated with the Baicells product nor are any of the ones we found set up the way FiSci is. This allowed us to create a long term deployment plan while planning and managing the costs in the short term.”
“We intend to turn up 40 sites with Baicells gear over the next 24 months,” continued Ryan. “Our plan is to build out the network and then install a large backlog of customers we previously could not service with traditional technologies. The unserved and underserved citizens in East Central Ohio will surely appreciate another option when it comes to rural broadband.”
“Smart Way wanted to expand into LTE and was interested in FiSci’s innovative LTEaaS subscription financing program,” said Armando Olivares, FiSci’s Director of Business Development. “After testing the Baicells LTE equipment, Smart Way was extremely satisfied with the technology. We are proud that they selected our technology as well as our LTEaaS program for their network buildout.”
