Press Release

HALLOWELL, Maine, Aug. 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Outer Reach Broadband, a Maine-based internet service provider, announced today the launch of its internet service to the town of Millinocket, providing a far less expensive alternative to cable companies and the like. Utilizing next-generation fixed wireless access (ngFWA) technology from Tarana, an industry-altering broadband solution provider, Outer Reach is now able to provide over 1,800 Millinocket homes with high-speed, reliable internet service. Monthly internet packages start at just $44.99.

“Joining the Millinocket community is a huge thrill for us,” said Tom Kirby, President of Outer Reach Broadband. “It’s a truly special town that will benefit from accessible high-speed internet subscriptions in exciting new ways. Our home-grown approach to connecting communities was made for Maine towns just like Millinocket, so we’re really looking forward to these new opportunities.”

For the project, Outer Reach implemented Tarana’s Gigabit 1 (G1) wireless broadband solution to cover six square miles with high-speed internet service. Planning and development for the project kicked off in December 2021 and was entirely completed in June 2022, totaling just six months to deploy a full, Tarana-backed network. Basil Alwan, CEO of Tarana, said, “We are delighted to help Outer Reach close the digital divide in small-town Maine. Now the people of Millinocket have an option for quality internet without long delays or high prices. It is great to see our G1 platform making a difference in deserving communities.”
