WASHINGTON, June 8, 2010 – Digital Bridge is the latest broadband stimulus award winner. The wireless broadband provider is one of the few WiMax providers in the nation. The Virginia-based firm was established in 2005 and launched its first network two years later. Digital Bridge maintains 15 networks nationwide.

The firm was awarded a $4.3 million grant to provide service to underserved communities in three Idaho counties; Digital Bridge already provides service in neighboring Twin Falls. In addition to Idaho the company has submitted 31 round two applications for Virginia, South Carolina, Mississippi, Tennessee and Indiana for a little over $150 million. By using wireless technologies and optimizing its equipment, Digital Bridge is able to provide coverage for $300 per household, which is one of the more cost effective options presented to the NTIA.

“This is a vote of confidence in the services provided by DigitalBridge Communications from the NTIA.  We look forward to bringing advanced, fourth-generation broadband services to those living in underserved areas,” said William Wallace, executive vice president of DigitalBridge.  “We also look forward to helping to build mobile broadband Internet into an engine for job and business creation.”
