MONT BELVIEU, Texas – April 17, 2019 – Mont Belvieu homeowner’s the Lane Family has become the 1,000th customer to benefit from fast and reliable broadband service provided by MBLink. Along with installation crews that visited the home of Mr. Lane to connect the home to the fiber-optic network, Mr. Lane was also surprised by a visit by Mont Belvieu Mayor Nick Dixon and City staff.
MBLink has been in business for just under one year. As Texas' first municipally-owned fully fiber-optic broadband network, MBLink and has been adding new customers in Mont Belvieu that otherwise must contend with slower and unreliable DSL or cable services.
Mayor Dixon marked the occasion by saying, “To connect over 1,000 new customers in under a year speaks to the need for better broadband service in Mont Belvieu and is precisely why the City decided to create its own fiber broadband service. We are paving the way for better business and residential connectivity in the State of Texas.”
Serving 1,000 customers represents a monumental milestone for the evolution of any broadband service provider and signifies the scale and prospects for growth throughout all of Mont Belvieu. Brain Ligon, Communications Director with the City of Mont Belvieu adds that, “More than anything, the 1000th customer signifies the growing level of trust that the homes and businesses have placed on the City of Mont Belvieu and its fast and reliable MBLink fiber broadband service.”
Helping to make all this possible is the City’s network implementation partner Magellan Advisors, which Mr. Ligon says “has been with us every step of the way in the implementation of our fiber network. Scott Moehnke and the Magellan Advisors team have been an invaluable piece of our broadband initiative and we simply could not have done this without them.”
