NewCore Wireless, the leading full-service hosted wireless switching provider, announced today that Enhanced Telecommunications Corporation (ETC) has chosen NewCore Wireless to host elements for its LTE network. ETC is a full-service telecommunications provider serving residents and businesses in Southeastern Indiana.  In addition to its FTTH, VDSL and DOCSIS broadband solutions, ETC operates a 29 site LTE network that provides services to nearly 2,000 rural subscribers. 

Since 2008, NewCore Wireless has provided technology and services to operators, placing emphasis on the expansion and connectivity of the nation’s underserved communities and providing innovative and shared wireless solutions. Leveraging NewCore Wireless’ scale helps Tier 3 carriers like ETC to control costs, improve time-to-market, and expand their services.

“The NewCore Wireless team has combined great vision with next-generation services and technology. These were qualities important to us as we explored a partner to work with,” said Kevin McGuire, COO, ETC. “We are excited to partner with NewCore Wireless to continue providing reliable LTE service and technology that will further drive our innovation and accessibility for our subscribers.” 

Today’s competitive wireless environment creates the struggle for carriers to provide the latest services in a cost-effective manner to their subscribers. Never before has the need for Tier 3 operators to work together been so evident. This partnership demonstrates both the value and opportunity that arise when operators join together to create economies of scale and shared resources such as the network, engineering services, operations and personnel.

“The NewCore Wireless solution will allow ETC to leverage our scale and continue offering LTE to their subscribers,” said Albert Kangas, General Manger and COO of NewCore Wireless. “As we enter 2016, the need for Tier 3 operators and vendors to combine efforts is critical.  Supporting combined services like operations and engineering, we provide cost-effective solutions important for the longevity of our industry. We look forward to working with ETC and the many other Tier 3 operators looking for solutions and seamless efforts to remain competitive.”
