Stephouse expands coverage to up to 258,000 potential customers over 80 square miles in SE Portland thanks to the activation of the new Mt. Scott tower
Earlier this week, Stephouse Networks activated a new signal tower on Mt. Scott in SE Portland. Using the latest MU-MIMO radio technology from Mimosa Networks, Stephouse is now able to broadcast a signal throughout the region, expanding its coverage significantly. The Portland-based ISP is now able to offer service to up to 258,000 new potential customers over 80 square miles of previously unserviced area.
The Mt. Scott tower joins a network of Stephouse towers and transmitters located throughout the Portland metro area and into southwestern Washington State. Like the others, the newest tower beams an internet signal directly to a receptor at a residential or commercial location. That, in turn, provides high-speed internet to customers, with speeds ranging from 25MBps up to 1Gigabit.
Stephouse’s expansion into SE Portland comes as a result of countless requests from local residents. Work on the tower has taken nearly a year to complete, and installations in the area will begin within the next week.
“Our goal has always been to expand throughout Portland, but we wanted to make sure we could offer our customers service they could rely on, not just expand for the sake of expansion,” said Tyler Booth, founder and president of Stephouse. “We’ve been working on this for nearly a year now, and we’re excited to get to work.”
While the new tower expands Stephouse’s coverage to a huge new potential audience, it won’t change anything in the way it does business. Stephouse does not include infrastructure fees in its bills, nor any other hidden charges. What you see is what you pay without exception.
The addition of the new tower also doesn’t change anything in regards to Stephouse’s rules regarding its customer’s privacy and security. Earlier this year, Stephouse signed the ISP Privacy Pledge, vowing to protect the data and rights of its customers, and nothing has changed in that regard.
We will also continue to offer our referral plan to all existing customers. So if you know anyone in SE Portland looking for high-speed internet service, refer them to Stephouse. They could end up with excellent and reliable internet, you will receive an account credit.
Potential customers are encouraged to contact Stephouse to see what services are available to them.
