InfoWest recently participated in its first FCC spectrum auction bidding against some of the nation’s largest mobile carriers and utility companies. InfoWest won licenses in the new CBRS mid-band frequencies for ten Utah counties. InfoWest will use its new spectrum licenses to enhance its service in ten Utah counties.

“We’re excited to be able to start rolling out this new high-speed and high-power wireless service on frequencies we now own throughout Southern Utah.,” said Cassidy Larson, CTO at InfoWest. “This new wireless spectrum is interference-free and will help us overcome challenges we’ve had in the past with obstructions between the roof and tower.”

What does this mean for our InfoWest customers?

Ever had a support technician tell you, “Your trees are obstructing the line of sight between your equipment and our towers?” This new spectrum will help us bridge that gap. CBRS does not go through all trees but will help us better overcome many of these obstructions.

InfoWest recently completed a new CBRS spectrum test in one of Southern Utah’s highly dense rural areas, Pine Valley. Here’s what one customer had to say: “For years, I’ve struggled with internet speed and reliability at my home in the Pine Valley, Utah area,” said Richard Herpel, Manager of IT for Stephen Wade Auto Centers. “InfoWest just installed a new connection at my house. What a difference. I can now stream 4K movies while others in the house are browsing on the internet. Not only that, I have a reliable internet-based telephone in the house. The guys at InfoWest hit a home run with this new system, and I can’t be more pleased!”

InfoWest plans to expand CBRS coverage to more than a dozen additional locations by the end of the year. Founded in 1994, InfoWest is the largest and oldest independent ISP in Central and Southern Utah.
