After nearly six years of planning and pushing, faster-speed and more affordable broadband is coming to commercial customers in New Braunfels soon. The NBEDC, NBU, and City Council approved an agreement with Frantic, LLC last month to allow the provider to access pole attachments and bring affordable rates and higher speeds.
The need arose in the NBEDC back in 2015, with downtown business owners informing the board of the issues they have with speed and cost. Magellan Consultants in Colorado performed an analysis of needs in 2016-17. Technology advancements in the years since have provided more affordable solutions to the challenge.
Frantic, LLC is preparing to begin operations soon. Stay tuned.
