Skywire Networks Welcomes Tom Gambino as Chief Operating Officer

Jul 26, 2022 8:15:00 AM

Having surpassed 2,000 lit buildings, an increase of over 170% since 2019, Skywire welcomes Tom Gambino to its leadership team. Tom joins as COO and will oversee the company’s residential and commercial network, engineering and business operations.

In recent years, Skywire Networks has been one of the most active network builders in NYC and currently has a near-net footprint that reaches more than 350,000 commercial and residential MDU’s across Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan and the South Bronx.

Skywire delivers where others can’t.

#1. Outside of midtown and downtown Manhattan, Skywire’s wholly owned wireless infrastructure is a competitive broadband network solution available to both commercial and residential customers. Unlike cable, FiOS or copper, our services can provide clients with an SLA that enable them to feel comfortable with the quality they demand.

#2 Tens of thousands of buildings in NYC have limited connectivity options – underserved by fiber and with older copper and cable infrastructure that can’t support high quality gigabit plus internet services. Skywire delivers the robust broadband services our clients require with speeds ranging from 50MB to 10GB.

#3 Skywire’s near-net network footprint covers 50%+ of the commercial and residential multi-dwelling buildings in Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, and the South Bronx. Skywire can serve most of these buildings and their tenants with its hybrid fixed wireless/fiber “last-mile” solution, providing customers with more choices and better-quality broadband solutions.

It’s a recipe for success and we’re proving it every day.

Back to Tom.

As COO, Tom’s primary responsibilities will include operational oversight of the company’s residential and commercial business units, among other executive tasks. Prior to Skywire, Tom served as SVP Deployment and Operations at Intersection, an experience-driven media and technology company, where he led the company’s operations across 12 markets, including Link, the world’s largest and fastest public Wi-Fi project. Before Intersection, he served as Senior Director of Operations at Charter Communications where he was responsible for the day-to-day operations of residential and commercial Services throughout New York City.

 “Skywire has proven itself a formidable provider of internet services in NYC,” said Gambino. “The company owns one of the largest fixed wireless networks and is disrupting the market by providing reliable broadband solutions to both residential and commercial buildings at a cost effective and scalable alternative to fiber. I am thrilled to be a part of the operations, future successes, and overall growth of Skywire and Xchange.”

 “This industry waits for no one,” comments Alan Levy, Co-Founder and CEO of Skywire Networks. “Tom’s hire is directly attributable to our considerable growth and the vast potential of our business going forward. The fact that we were able to bring Tom into the fold at this critical time is really something special.”

 Welcome to the team Tom, the future is bright!
