Hallowell, Maine – August 22, 2023 /PRNewswire/ – Outer Reach Broadband, a Maine-based internet service provider, announced today the launch of its service in the town of Skowhegan, providing a local and far less expensive alternative to the incumbent cable and telephone companies.

Monthly internet packages start at just $44.99.

“Providing an affordable, high-speed internet alternative to Skowhegan is a thrill,” said Tom Kirby, President of Outer Reach Broadband. “We’re excited to bring a more reliable service and experience to a region that has been overlooked by the big guys for generations. Our home-grown approach to connecting communities was made for rural Maine, so we’re really looking forward to these new opportunities.”

To add to the excitement and celebrate the network’s launch, Outer Reach is hosting a free weekend double feature of Jaws and Back to the Future at the Skowhegan Drive-In August 25-27. “It is a thrill that we get to celebrate the launch of this network by sharing a double feature of classic summer films with the community”, added Kirby.

For the project, Outer Reach implemented Tarana’s Gigabit 1 (G1) wireless broadband solution to cover six square miles with high-speed service. With a growing Tarana network already operating in Millinocket, Skowhegan is the latest step in Outer Reach’s development with network launches utilizing Tarana’s game-changing technology coming in Lee, Lakeville, Lincoln, Madison and Anson later this Fall.
