BigTube Wireless was established in 2001 by Richard Jones and Kerry Penland in Caro, Mi. Our goal was to bring high speed internet service to our surrounding community. We started with one tower and a burstable T1 internet connection. Business grew, by April of 2011 we were at 1800+ customers with 16 broadcast locations serving Cass City, Ellington, Caro, Mayville, Fostoria, Fish Lake Subdivision, North Branch, Burnside, Brown City, Goodland twp, and Imlay City on a single 45mbs DS3 circuit. Our time and resources were being tested, We had to grow, add new people, bigger internet pipes, etc. To this end, merged our operation with Air Advantage, LLC in Frankenmuth. Fast forward to today, we are still here, fulfilling our original goal. Air Advantage is now a division of Thumb Electric Cooperative, with our new partner we will be continuing our fiber expansion with fiber-to-the-home for all TEC customers and continuing the upgrades of our wireless broadcast POPs with new LTE and high-speed wireless access points.
