Mediacom Communications partners with Tarana to expand broadband footprint

April 12, 2024
The company is using RDOF funds to bring internet to customers in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and North Carolina.  

On April 9, cable operator Mediacom Communications and broadband technology manufacturer Tarana, announced a partnership to bring high-speed internet to thousands of residential customers in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and North Carolina, using funding from the Federal Communication Commission’s Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF).

Mediacom will employ Tarana’s next-generation fixed wireless access (ngFWA) platform, Gigabit 1 (G1), which, in testing, exceeded the 100 Mbps download and 20 Mbps upload standard required by the RDOF.

Mediacom’s vice president of business engineering and wireless, Fuad Alnajjar, said in a press release, “Not only does Tarana’s technology allow us to exceed RDOF requirements, but it also enables us to pursue exciting new opportunities. With significantly faster time-to-market and competitive performance, ngFWA will allow us to expand into previously unreachable markets.”
