Clearwave Fiber is touting what it calls its new “Everyday Pricing” strategy, which essentially eliminates special introductory pricing. As the company explains, the price for a new service won’t automatically increase after six, 12 or 24 months.
The lowest price that the company offers is quite low: $34.99 a month for 100 Mbps symmetrical service. The company also offers symmetrical 250 Mbps, 500 Mbps and 1 Gbps service for $50, $60 and $70 a month, respectively.
“Our ‘Everyday Pricing’ approach is meant to simplify the purchase process for customers,” said Shelley Hallier, Clearwave’s senior vice president of marketing, in a prepared statement. “Now they can assess the value of our internet service at a single price point instead of one price now and another price a year from now.”
Clearwave’s service area is heavily rural. It includes communities in Illinois, Kansas, Florida and Georgia.
The company was a subsidiary of Cable One until last year when it was spun off into a joint venture between Cable One, affiliates of cable broadband consolidator GTCR, Stephens Capital Partners, The Pritzger Organization and certain members of the joint venture’s management team.
Some fiber assets of Cable One’s Hargray Communications subsidiary were also spun off into the joint venture.
