ZochNet to provide Fiber Internet and Phone services for Lexington Municipalities

Lexington, Texas (September 13, 2018) – Unified Communications, Inc. dba ZochNet is a “multi-platform” internet service provider; using fixed wireless, cable and fiber-optic technology to reach rural Texans, today announced that it has been selected as the preferred provider of Fiber internet and Fiber VoIP phone service for the City of Lexington and all the municipal offices. ZochNet will replace Frontier Communications current internet and phone service that is run on slower DSL speeds as compared to fiber-optic technology.

“We are grateful that Mayor Allen Retzlaff and the City Council has put their trust in ZochNet, in choosing us as their communications provider.” said Robert Zoch, CEO of ZochNet. We operate in a very competitive environment; this partnership reinforces ZochNet’s ability to go head-to-head with larger competitors and win.”

ZochNet; a Lee County headquartered business, had acquired the ailing Lexington cable company, Reveille Broadband, in the latter part of 2017 and will begin to replace the cable system with the newer technology of Fiber-Optics, in order to bring the gold standard of high-speed internet to Lexington residence and businesses throughout 2019. Roger Turner; CFO of ZochNet, explained to the City Council that with the cities approval, they would be able to immediately bring Fiber-to-the-Business (FTTB) around the city square, and then proceed to bring fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) in the 1st quarter of 2019, with the expectation that Lexington will be the first 1GIG town in Lee County.

NEW NETWORK OPERATIONS CENTER

ZochNet Purchased for the next NOC

Roger Turner, Chief Financial Officer of Unified Communications, Inc. (dba ZochNet), commented on the purchase. “We felt this property was essential to the continued growth of our company’s operations and services,” explained Turner. “This acquisition is a major development for the company, as it will become the corporate headquarters for ZochNet.” Turner announced that the building will be renamed as the “ZochNet Technology Center”. The property also includes a tower that ZochNet had been leasing ever since the company’s inception in 2010.

Turner stated that renovations will start in 2018, and the facility will be designed as a secured Network Operations Center, known as a NOC, to manage the company’s entire cable and wireless systems 24 hours a day 7 days a week, 365 days a year. “This is also significant in that this location will become our main fiber node to ultimately deliver high speed fiber directly to the businesses and homes of Giddings,” said Turner.

The current Blue Moon location at the intersection of Hwy. 77 and Hwy. 21 in Lincoln, will continue to be used as the Field Operations Service Center, as only customer service and administration staff will move to the new Giddings location.
ZOCHNET Offers Phone and Internet to Lee County
LEE COUNTY OFFICIAL PROVIDER

Lee County Official Provider of Phone and Internet

The Lee County Commissioners Court selected Lee County-based Zochnet to provide internet and phone service for the courthouse and the majority of county satellite offices.
Zochnet representatives explained that the new phone and computer network will not be dependent on being routed to Houston and Austin like the Frontier (formerly Verizon) phone network has been.

Currently, if there is an network issue between Giddings and Houston, for example, all phone lines for county offices have been affected. This has happened on a number of occasions.
The long term contract with Frontier has expired and the county is currently continuing on a month-tomonth basis. The commissioners motion to terminate with Frontier names May 15, 2017 as the final date of service.

Zochnet will begin the process of migrating the phone and data network in order to be able to switch over by that date. In addition to the promise of providing a more reliable network, Zochnet also promises twice the internet speed for satellite offices and 4 times the speed of the current connections at the courthouse.
