'We chose ClearSky because of their ability to simplify and accelerate the launch of LTE services, allowing us to focus more on our customers,' said Great Plains Chief Network Engineer John Greene.

As the largest independent telecommunications company in Nebraska, Great Plains will deliver high-speed, low-cost wireless broadband access that was previously unavailable to many of the rural areas it serves in Custer County. This new service is scheduled to be available starting in the second quarter, 2014.

“By selecting LTE as their platform to extend broadband and voice services to rural markets, Great Plains is continuing its tradition of community service through technology leadership,” said ClearSky Senior Vice President of Business Development Dean Fresonke. “We are committed to supporting these efforts by addressing every aspect of LTE deployment so that Great Plains can deliver the best possible user experience to the 90 wireless communities they serve.”

“While eliminating the upfront cost and complexities of building out LTE on our own, ClearSky’s LTE Services Suite delivers ongoing savings by eliminating the cost of expensive core network components, 24x7 monitoring, and specialized support personnel,” said Great Plains Chief Network Engineer John Greene. “We chose ClearSky because of their ability to simplify and accelerate the launch of LTE services, allowing us to focus more on our customers.”
