A Brief History of Broadband Telecom
Broadband Telecom was founded by current President Jeffrey Beekhoo to provide telecom network infrastructure services to cities and municipalities looking to build open or closed access networks for their residents. With millions of households in the United States still unable to achieve the benchmark 25 Mbps down and 3 Mbps upload speeds set by the Federal Government, he saw the urgency to provide these capabilities so that these areas could flourish. Utilizing the model that was developed by Google Fiber in Kansas City, he has had experience with similar projects that utilize existing infrastructure, tax money, and a combination of fiber optics and wireless, to create broadband networks that reduce leakage and generate additional revenue, as well as providing a much-needed service to the residents and business.
We offer services in the following areas:
City of Virginia Beach, City of Hampton, Lancaster County, Middlesex County, Gloucester County, Caroline County, City of Chesapeake, Culpeper County, Powhatan County, City of Norfolk, Campbell County
