Create The Network Our Community Deserves
49.7 million Americans have only one option for high-speed internet service. Many in the borderland find themselves in this predicament. Non-competitive telecommunications markets allow monopolies to take hold, and these monopolies are known for operating in unethical ways:
- Raising rates on existing subscribers through the use of hidden fees, and deceptive pricing schemes.
- Anti-competitive lobbying practices.
- Selling information about customers’ browsing habits to questionable third parties, advertisers, and data brokers.
- Lobbying congress to allow for the use of data caps.
JackRabbit aims to challenge this status quo, and to deliver a service that our customers and our community can be proud of. We are incredibly grateful to our customers and community members for supporting us from the very beginning.
Close The Digital Divide
Rural communities without dependable, high speed broadband internet access risk falling behind with regard to education, healthcare, employment opportunities, and general economic development. We have seen how the Covid-19 pandemic has greatly challenged these communities, which often had poor internet infrastructure pre-COVID. For example, a rural student whose family depends on traditional satellite internet will be unable to attend video conference classes (Zoom) because of the tremendous 800ms+ latency such satellite connections have. Through terrestrial Fixed Wireless radio technology, JackRabbit is able to provide the same family a connection with <50ms latency, and four times the bandwidth, at a more affordable rate. When a family tells us that their children can finally attend online classes or that they can finally video call their friends and family – that is incredibly rewarding, and drives us to continue doing what we do.
