November 9, 2016 – Rise Broadband, the country’s largest fixed wireless provider of internet and digital phone service, has acquired the wireless broadband (internet) operations of Telebeep Wireless, a Norfolk, Nebraska-based internet company.

Along with serving the areas surrounding Norfolk, Rise has recently expanded its existing network in the adjacent Columbus community.

The company also offers DISH and Direct TV as well as PC Care; a one-stop resource for residential tech assistance, tune-ups and maintenance for PCs/Macs, mobile device configuration, streaming support and equipment troubleshooting.
