About NextLink Internet
Nextlink is an internet service provider delivering high-speed internet and voice services throughout Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa & Illinois to residential, business, K-12, higher learning, and governmental agencies. We use fixed wireless and fiber-optic technology to deliver voice and data services to the under-served enterprise, commercial, and residential markets within the states we serve. When we come to a community to connect local government, school district or rural healthcare providers, we team with them and the local economic development entity (EDCs) to see how we can continue to expand our coverage to the rest of the businesses and residents at large. Through upgraded local infrastructures we have seen EDCs, in partnership with Nextlink Internet, attract new commercial businesses, developers and residential developments overall infusing the communities with new growth opportunities previously limited by the lack of true high-speed internet access.
Through integrity, accountability, passion, and a focus on success, Nextlink is a company that honors commitments, provides solutions, and strives for the highest quality of customer satisfaction. Nextlink’s competitive differentiation, within both wireline and wireless, in the rural and semi-rural markets in which it serves is relatively simple: offer higher speed plans, better quality of service, and an intense focus on the customer service experience.
Since initiating operations in the fall of 2012 in Weatherford, Texas, Nextlink Internet has experienced radical, organic growth and has become one of the largest wireless internet service providers in the nation. Currently, Nextlink ranks as the 5th largest fixed wireless provider in the United States.
Key reasons for Nextlink’s growth include its investment in its network and continued focus on maintaining its customer-to-access-point ratio. We employ a Network Operations staff 24/7 that constantly monitors tower utilization to prevent oversaturation. In addition, Nextlink has a robust, active tower construction strategy designed to meet the needs of the ever-growing subscriber base. Given the intense demand for our services, we invest heavily in our staff as we grow so that we are never understaffed.
Unlike many of our competitors, Nextlink’s approach focuses not only on speed but also on the quality of service offered. Nextlink minimizes the number of wireless backhaul connections before its data traffic is transported on its fiber network and also maintains the vast majority of its wireless backhaul connections on licensed links that mitigate interference. Our tower network maintains substantial redundancy in both fiber transport (with multiple and varied transport networks across a regional area), while also cross-layering the tower network with redundant wireless backhauls to minimize service disruptions in the event of an equipment or fiber outage.
