Garrett Wiseman, Co-Founder and Chief Executive of Mercury Broadband announced today a multi-year partnership with VETRO Inc., creators of the market leading map-based SaaS platform for fiber management. This partnership enables the company to rapidly plan, design, build, and operate its FTTH network projects by simplifying the digitization and management of its fiber network.

 

“At Mercury Broadband, we recognize that strong partnerships with best-in-class technology providers are critical to the acceleration of our growth plans and on-going efforts to close the digital divide,” says Garrett Wiseman, Co-Founder and Chief Executive of Mercury Broadband. “VETRO provides us with a radically simpler network asset management platform that will deliver unparalleled operational efficiency through its data visualization and mapping platform. Partnering with VETRO enables us to deliver high-quality internet to unserved and underserved communities across the states of Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri, and Ohio in a timely, organized way.”

 

“We’re thrilled to welcome Mercury Broadband to the VETRO family,” says Will Mitchell, CEO and Co-Founder at VETRO. “Our platform will help Mercury Broadband bring underserved communities online faster through our unique ability to digitize, operationalize and optimize the physical layer of fiber networks. Like Mercury Broadband, VETRO is passionate about bridging the digital divide and enabling better connectivity for all, and it is our pleasure to partner with such an innovative ISP working to do just that.”

 

Mercury Broadband was recently awarded $62M in Rural Digital Opportunity Fund grants by the FCC to bring fiber-optic broadband to 122,000 underserved communities across the Midwest. The construction is expected to take 6 years, span over 12,000 miles, and deliver high-speed internet to thousands of customers. Utilizing VETRO FiberMap, the company will have a comprehensive digital inventory of their networks to easily identify and unlock future opportunities to better serve communities.
