Paladin to provide service to Danielsville
Aug 17, 2017
In other business, the council heard a presentation from Paladin Wireless, a new internet company based out of Franklin County. The owner said they want to provide competition to Windstream, the only other high-speed internet service in the area.
The council agreed to let the company take a tour around the city to locate towers and other sites they can locate transmitters on. They will also offer a proposal to provide city-wide high-speed LTD service. Officials said they currently have 400 customers in the area that covers 257 square miles with locations on 16 towers.
They currently serve neighboring Franklin County government and residential customers. The company claims a 98.97 percent reliability average and promises quick service when issues occur.
“Our citizens definitely need options,” Higdon said.
