Most broadband networks in underserved communities are owned and operated by 1 or 2 for-profit service providers, therefore there is no incentive to provide better services at competitive prices. In addition, if community residents cannot afford subscription-based broadband, they are completely cut off from all things digital, including community-based services.
Without choice, citizens who can't afford Internet or only need access to critical community-based content and services, will continue to be forced into paying providers to get online.
eCommunity introduces a network connection that delivers enhanced broadband access to both low income urban and underserved rural communities. Our open access network enables multiple providers to compete to provide their services over a single connection. No provider owns or controls the connection at your home or business. As a result, providers have no choice but to compete to provide the best value services or risk losing customers to competitors. Providers now have access to markets incumbent providers have shut them out of and consumers have access to services that were previously unavailable or too expensive to enjoy.
eCommunity goes beyond just making sure citizens have access to competitive broadband services, we work with local non-profits and government agencies to ensure that everyone, at a minimum, has access to the critical community services and resources they need. This includes but is not limited to telehealth, distance learning, municipal services, and other public content and information.
eCommunity, were you're never shut off.
Whether you live in urban cities or rural towns; your community is wealthy or poor; eCommunity's goal is to bring a fiber connection to every home, businesses and anchor institutions. We will leverage both private and public resources in order to effectively deliver broadband connectivity to everyone.
Power of Choice
eCommunity does not offer any Internet-based services directly to connected citizen or business owner. We have executed Master Service agreements (MSA) with many service providers which include but are not limited to telephone companies, internet service providers, cable companies, wireless carriers, and a wide assortment of direct application (over-the-top) providers.
Providers trust our network to help deliver their services to anyone connected to it. As a result, we bring competition to communities that typically have 1 or 2 broadband provider choices. Now you can choose amongst 5, 6 or more service providers, all of which are ready to meet your individual needs and budget.
Not being able to access public information, enabling kids to complete online homework assignments,
or searching for jobs via the department of labor are all experiences we have faced. As a result, eCommunity was created specifically to help those who are cut-off by their Internet provider because they can't afford it. Once connected to eCommunity, you will be able to directly connect to community-based content, website domains and services, all without crossing the traditional Internet.
eCommunity is always on, even if your internet is not.
