Mears Broadband says its turnkey focus will help providers navigate the BEAD opportunity

Feb. 8, 2024
The company said it will better meet the evolving needs of the fiber broadband industry as a standalone entity under Quanta.

Mears Broadband, LLC, a turnkey fiber broadband network construction contractor, has launched as a standalone entity under the Quanta Services umbrella. As a standalone entity, Mears Broadband has more flexibility and agility in responding to the fiber broadband industry’s evolving needs.

Mears Broadband customers and partners will experience the same level of service and experience. All current personnel, contacts, and high-level operations will remain in place. 

A big focus for Mears Broadband will be helping its clients navigate the Broadband Equity Access and Deployment (BEAD) program.

Broadband providers across the U.S. are applying for funding from the National Telecommunications and Information Administration’s (NTIA) $42.45 billion program to connect unserved and underserved communities to reliable broadband service. 

With construction absorbing 70-80% of fiber deployment costs, Mears Broadband will help ensure that BEAD proposals are feasible and successful. 

It provides service providers with broadband expertise, a turnkey fiber network infrastructure solution, and an ecosystem of skilled and vetted partners that together ensure projects are completed on time and within budget.
