Shentel Expands its Beam Internet Service to New Canton, Mount Jackson and Dillwyn, Virginia

Posted 13 May 2021 12:00 AM by Shentel

Edinburg, Va. (May 13, 2021) Shenandoah Telecommunications Company (“Shentel”) (Nasdaq: SHEN) announced the expansion of high-speed internet access to New Canton, Mount Jackson and Dillwyn, Virginia through Beam, its new fixed wireless broadband service. This expansion will benefit approximately 2,700 target households within Buckingham and Shenandoah Counties in northwestern Virginia and is part of a larger expansion that has already made service available to over 15,000 households this year.

Beam [Internet] targets rural, less densely populated areas of Shentel’s footprint during a time when reliable, high-speed access to the Internet has become more critical than ever before. Beam’s fixed wireless broadband service leverages 5G ready LTE technology delivered over licensed mid-band spectrum at 2.5 GHz and 3.5 GHz, transmitted over local communications towers and small cells equipped with fiber backhaul. Download speeds range from 25 to 100 Mbps and prices start at $65 per month with no hidden fees or surcharges.

“According to the U.S. Census, nearly 60 million Americans live in rural communities who are struggling to stay connected to their loved ones and work or study from home because they don’t have access to affordable, reliable high-speed Internet access,” said Dan Meenan, VP of Wireless Engineering & Construction at Shentel. “It is part of our mission to ensure folks living in rural communities have access to the same level of telecommunications service as those living in more urban areas. We believe Beam Internet will help bridge the digital divide in our footprint.”
