Further-Reach is De Novo Group’s flagship project. It is where we get our hands dirty and apply our research in the most applicable and practical way --- we deploy and operate a large-scale wireless network in one of California’s most rural areas. We serve hundreds of paying subscribers for whom ours is the only affordable and reliable solution for true broadband Internet access.
The Further-Reach network has absolutely changed Internet access in that region, and it is a novel model for the rest of the U.S. and the world. In particular, the model provides high bandwidth with low operational costs, which makes it viable in areas with lower population density. This network is critical for our testing of new solutions and technologies as they are being developed and refined by our R&D team.
