Cincinnati-based PowerNet Global said this week it has expanded the coverage area for its high-speed broadband wireless Internet service in greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky areas.
PNG placed equipment on three new towers that provide an additional 40 square miles of coverage in northeastern and southern parts of Cincinnati as well as parts in Northern Kentucky. The expansion also provides additional coverage for areas that were previously covered by the original towers and first expansion, including all of downtown Cincinnati, Evendale, Reading, Sharonville and Walnut Hills.
The new expansion allows PNG to service businesses in Blue Ash, Montgomery, Pisgah, Sharonville and other surrounding areas in northeast Cincinnati. Other cities added in the southern areas of Cincinnati are Avondale, Corryville, Hyde Park, Mt. Adams, Mt. Auburn, Mt. Lookout, Norwood, Oakley, OTR, Pendleton, Pleasant Ridge and Rookwood. In Northern Kentucky, Bellevue, Covington and Newport are also serviceable by end of August 2012.
PNG plans additional expansion to provide service to other northeast areas of Cincinnati, including Amberley, Deer Park, Kenwood, Montgomery, Silverton and other nearby areas by late 2012 or early 2013.
The wireless broadband service is supported by a high-capacity, high-speed microwave transport ring that comprises the backbone of the network.
Service is available starting at $79.95 per month.
PNG also offers voice, data, SIP and managed communications services to commercial and residential customers nationwide.
