Welcome to the Scottville Tower Expansion Page

Welcome to the Scottville expansion page, this project has been in our sights for over a year. We had to recreate our plans twice due to new opportunities, this expansion will not only provide our services to parts of the county as yet un-served, but it will also allow us to provide additional service to our current subscriber base. Our services have been highly desired in this part of Mason County for a while now and are pleased to be close to finishing this project.

This page will be updated as soon as information in available.

Questions and Answers regarding the tower

I can see the tower, am I serviceable?

You have an excellent chance of getting internet service, line of sight installs are almost always guaranteed great signal. If you do not have direct line of site to the tower, chances are you can still get service. We perform free site surveys for all interested customers, please fill out the following form and a representative will contact you shortly.

What if I am close but cannot see the tower?

We use frequencies designed for use in LOS (Line of Site), nLOS (Near Line of Sight) and NLOS (Non-Line of Sight) environments, some of our equipment is designed to penetrate trees, foliage and various types of substrate. Additionally, we have several powerful receiver options at our disposal as well as a myriad of ways the equipment can be mounted. If there is a way, we will spare no means to find and utilize it.
