Broadband Networks Wireless Internet announced as new brand name for Omnicity

RUSHVILLE — Broadband Networks has announced Broadband Networks Wireless Internet as the new brand name for the company formerly known as Omnicity, Incorporated. Broadband Networks purchased the Rushville-based, wireless broadband Internet service provider in December 2012.

Broadband Networks Wireless Internet will continue to work to provide quality service and support, faster speed, more reliability, larger coverage areas and new and exciting products for its customers.

“We have made significant investments in new technology and network reliability, and we felt a new name and logo would help better reflect our new brand,” said Broadband Networks Principal Buz Nesbit.

“Broadband Networks Wireless Internet offers our customers in rural Indiana and Ohio improved access by building new fiber optic connections to the Internet,” said Broadband Networks Principal Dave Bash. “We have increased connection speeds by improving the customer’s on-ramp to the Internet, and we have been updating other areas of the network and building out our system to double available speeds in many areas. While not all areas are completed, we will continue this process throughout Indiana and Ohio over the next few months.”

The Broadband Networks Wireless Internet offices will remain in Rushville. The company continues the mission to serve as many customers as possible while remaining committed to using the best technology to improve the customer experience.

“We have been very pleased with our growth in the last few months, and we are excited more people are recognizing the value of our service and are becoming new customers,” Nesbit said. “We have increased our speeds, and customers are enjoying better Internet surfing with faster connections. We have subscribers in 29 counties in Indiana and nine counties in Ohio, and we plan to continue building our networks to serve even more people in need of Internet connectivity in these rural areas.”

Omnicity, Incorporated filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on Sept. 29, 2011, with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in the Southern District of Indiana. A reorganization plan was approved, and ownership of the company was transferred to Broadband Networks. The new owners have more than 100 years of collective experience in companies providing high-tech and Internet services.

In addition to fast and reliable high-speed Internet access, Broadband Networks Wireless Internet also provides residential areas with access to medical alert systems, such as the LifeLine Personal Response System. Broadband Networks Wireless Internet’s business services include advanced communications for rural schools, hospitals and organizations.
