ZochNet has acquired JET JET INTERNET
Effective March 2021, we welcome Jet Jet users into the ZochNet Family

Bellville, Texas (March 1, 2021) – Internet Service Provider; ZochNet, recently acquired a local internet company; Jet Jet Internet LLC, based out of Sealy, Texas.
The deal closed on February 28th. “This acquisition will expand ZochNet’s current coverage area in Austin County and increase its tower network in the county; by adding 12 towers, bringing us up to 26 towers, throughout the county” said Roger Turner, the company’s CFO. Currently, ZochNet is in the early construction stages of fibering the town of Bellville, the capital seat of Austin County.

Jet Jet Internet was founded in 2012 and has been operated by local Sealy resident, Bobby Schoelman, since he started the company. “I first met Roger in the spring of 2020 and liked their business model and future plans to expand and update rural internet service in Texas. I knew that ZochNet was committed to being on top of the industry changes and was wanting to expand. In turn, ZochNet learned more about Jet Jet Internet and were impressed by many things about our business model, network and operations. Since our two companies overlapped in a couple areas and with us having similar business models, ZochNet expressed an interest in purchasing our Sealy area network. With Sealy and Austin County growing so quickly, Jet Jet Internet’s expanding network and rapidly growing customer base, we decided that the timing was right to sell certain assets to ZochNet. We had been approached by other wireless internet service providers interested in purchasing our network over the past year. We knew that ZochNet was by far the right choice as they are best equipped to provide high-quality internet options in our area, reliable connectivity and they are also well-known in the industry to provide stellar customer service (which were always our goals, as well)”, said Bobby Schoelman.

“While Jet Jet Internet is building internet infrastructure in the Bahamas, ZochNet plans on keeping all of their existing employees, because obtaining their kind of talent and experience is very important to our company,” explained Roger Turner. “This deal of purchasing the Jet Jet Internet and Sealy area network infrastructure, which in part includes 12 towers, multiple fiber optic backbone connections and 1,200 Jet Jet subscribers will bring us up to over 7,500 subscribers, which gives us the means to increase our customer care support and network monitoring to ultimately provide 24/7/365 customer service.”

This is the second acquisition in 6 months, ZochNet acquired Texas Broadband, based in Brenham, whom was a 20-year old ISP in 10 counties throughout the area, including Austin County. These transactions positions ZochNet to fulfill the broadband needs of Fiber-Optic technology for FTTH & FTTB, (Fiber to the Home, & Business) for the Austin county towns and Highspeed Internet for the most rural areas of Austin County.

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 Offers Phone and Internet to Lee County

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.
