Skywire CEO, Alan Levy, Talks NYC Fiber, Fixed Wireless, and 5G with Telecom Ramblings
Everywhere we look in the telecom and internet infrastructure space we see preparations for 5G underway. But in many cases, the technological hurdles aren’t the difficult ones. In markets like New York City it’s easier to talk about network densification but a whole lot harder to actually do it. Places like NYC have long been minefields for large carriers, but opportunity zones for smaller companies with the necessary local knowledge and capabilities. One such operator in NYC is Skywire Networks, which has been busy deploying its network throughout the digital deserts of NYC. With us today to talk about Skywire’s approach to bringing high-speed internet to every corner of NYC is founder and CEO Alan Levy.

Skywire Action Plan in the Wake of Covid-19
Dear Skywire customers and partners,
At this time when the news is dominated by Coronavirus, I wanted to personally reach out and let you know that we are vigilantly implementing enhanced protocols and increasing network capacity, redundancy, and security to ensure that your network and business continues to run seamlessly and without interruption.
We are closely monitoring the guidance of the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control regarding the spread of the virus, which among other things has resulted in the implementation of unprecedented levels of remote workforce policies. Demand for broadband services continues to rise especially as video conferencing, virtual-events tools, conference calling and other UC tools, are relied on to insure seamless communication with your employees, customers and partners.
Here’s what we’re doing:
Is Special Construction Killing Your Deals?
We have all been through it. We go through the process of identifying what we thought were “lit” facilities, prepare a quote for the customer and eventually win the opportunity. Then after a month of back and forth with the underlying carrier, we get that deal killing news….SPECIAL CONSTRUCTION CHARGES!

Bringing Broadband to the Outer Boroughs of NYC
In 2004, an article was published by a research thinktank called The Center For an Urban Future titled - New York’s Broadband Gap. It’s remarkable how little has been accomplished in the 15 years since the article was published. Sometimes you need to look into the past to see the future.
Fixed wireless broadband startup Starry files to raise up to $125 million.
It’s nice to see Starry, a Boston based fixed wireless company focused primarily on the urban MDU space, raise $120 million at a pre-money valuation of $875 million.
For $50/month, Starry delivers 200MB speeds to residential customers living in apartment buildings initially in Boston and in other cities. Starry, Skywire and other platforms which deliver OTT services are contributing to the massive increase in “cord cutting” which increased to 1 million homes in the fourth quarter.
