ZochNet has started the year-long project to upgrade Giddings to a 1Gig city,
by building out Fiber Optic internet throughout the city, in order to deliver internet at the speed of light

Giddings, Texas (November 19, 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 ZochNet announced that they have started the 2-year project to upgrade Giddings to a 1Gig city, by building out Fiber Optic internet throughout the city, in order to deliver internet at the speed of light with 1000Mbps, to all households (FTTH) and businesses (FTTB) in Giddings.

“Providing the gold standard of internet throughout ZochNet’s home-town community has been a long-standing dream of ZochNet’s Founder and CEO; Robert Zoch III.” Explained Roger Turner, Chief Financial Officer.

The company began stringing their main fiber trunk line on September 1st starting from their future headquarters location at the 424 S. Main & Industry intersection heading east bound on Industry toward the Elementary school; as well as, south bound on Polk Street. Robert Zoch, CEO said, “Our first priority was to upgrade our current Fixed Wireless internet and phone services to the County Court House and their various county offices on Industry Street to fiber. We have already connected our first FTTB customers; Bluebonnet Trails and PumpCo to our fiber optic technology which is virtually unlimited. In addition to symmetrical upload and download speeds, almost no signal loss or latency, and incredible video-streaming capability. Our fiber can handle all the internet, video, voice and data for Giddings homes and businesses – and still have plenty of capacity left for full home automation, telemedicine, telecommuting, and all of the life-changing applications that are just now being created.”

“ZochNet shares the vision with the town to improve the speed, efficiency and reliability of Giddings’ communications infrastructure,” explained Tonya Britton, Director of the Economic Development Corporation, “This will create economic development leading to job creation and growth as well as contributing to the quality of life of the residences of Giddings. The opportunities for local businesses and the advanced technology has raised the bar; and now the infrastructure, to keep local businesses and attract new business.”

The construction buildout will take up to two years to complete the entire town, which entails stringing over 31 miles of fiber to reach all businesses and homes at an estimated cost of approximately $1,000,000. The EDC intends on working closely with ZochNet to reach those areas of town on the far outskirts, such as Kaemark in the southwest area and the Business Park to the east of town. On large complex’s such as these, they first require fiber installation to connect each of the buildings and then bringing into the complex from county roads. It will take more time to reach their location but is being planned to happen in 2019.

“ZochNet is always exploring the opportunity to bring better internet to communities hungry for an alternative to their current provider.” said Roger Turner, CFO. “With ZochNet’s leading residential and business offerings and our exceptional customer service, our mission is to provide better internet at the best possible value.”

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”.

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.
