Owenton, KY - June 12, 2020
White Cloud Communications US, LLC, a privately owned rural broadband internet provider, has announced the closing of the purchase of SkytechBB’s assets and accounts as of May 29, 2020.
For several months, Gallatin County Fiscal Court and White Cloud Communications US, LLC worked out details on the transaction, as well as planning a way forward to improving services and expanding the territory the system can serve.
“We are happy with the outcome of this transaction, this is the beginning of a partnership with Gallatin County that will stand for years to come.” Said Kerry Bowlin, White Cloud’s president. “We are anxious to show residents what the future holds for those who have the former SkytechBB service, for those who don’t yet have any broadband service, and even for those who are looking for a viable cost-effective alternative to the local cable and telephone provider.”
Gallatin County Judge Executive Ryan Morris stated. “I’m very happy that the county will continue to be a partner in this. Looking forward for our residents and businesses to have another option once White Cloud upgrades the SkyTech system."
Bowlin continued “White Cloud plans to deploy LTE fixed wireless using licensed and unlicensed spectrum, which gives us options to serve customers with higher bandwidth and in places that were unable to be reached with the current technology. Our Owen County and Western Kentucky customers are seeing wireline performance, and speeds better than satellite and most rural telephone companies.” He continued “During COVID-19 we have installed customers who never had service who are now able to work, perform school functions, and see their doctor all from the safety and convenience of their home. Now, Gallatin County will soon be afforded the same opportunity”
Skytech customers will begin to receive their monthly statements from White Cloud in July, and accounts are already being moved to White Cloud’s subscriber management system for billing and care.
