KeyOn Communications and Alvarion have deployed a WiMAX data network in Pahrump, Nevada in the 3.65 GHz spectrum band. KeyOn has deployed Alvarion’s BreezeMAX Extreme gear providing coverage to over 15,000 households. 

KeyOn has already begun marketing the services to its customers, augmenting its product service that currently includes fixed wireless data and satellite video services. In connection with this deployment, KeyOn is offering VoIP services on the 3.65 GHz WiMAX platform to provide an integrated voice and data solution to its customers.

“There is a great demand for broadband services throughout US especially in rural and underserved areas. We are excited to partner with KeyOn to bring new 4G services to Pahrump, Nevada”, said Eran Gorev, president and CEO of Alvarion. 

KeyOn has expanded its network footprint to reach approximately 55,000 square miles and cover over 2,800,000 people. The company also intends to opportunistically build mobile and/or nomadic WiMAX networks in and around its market footprint.

“Broadening our service offering and building on existing network footprint, which includes 5 newly acquired businesses in the past 6 months, KeyOn is delighted to break new ground in advancing the potential for WiMAX deployment in this spectrum,” said Jonathan Snyder, Chief Executive Officer for KeyOn Communications.
