The growing influx to the Washington Tri-Cities area - around Kennewick, Pasco, and Richland - is easily justified. Besides being renowned as an area of natural outstanding beauty (thanks to the confluence of the Yakima, Snake, and Columbia rivers converging on your doorstep), the area is fondly known as the wine capital of the west. It also boasts a vibrant community art scene, showcases a culinary fusion of flavors, and prides itself in local farmer’s markets crammed with sustainable and seasonal produce. Its magnetic pull is an invitation to live a slow life and embrace outdoor pursuits that epitomize a healthy work-life balance.
There's no doubt that the small-town charm and remote locations get a thumbs up, but you quickly realize you cannot take your 'big city' internet plan. You may be ready to give up the fast pace of urban living, but you are not prepared to give up a high-speed internet connection.
Here’s the burning question: Can you get ‘big-city’ internet speeds in the more rural small-town areas of Washington? Until recently, this was a major downside of taking your remote work to a more remote location. The Tri-Cities and outer Tri-Cities areas (including Stevens County) could be considered underserved due to their physical distance from major city hubs and lack of fiber infrastructure that spans all areas. Taking the internet that ‘last mile’ has been the real challenge and this ‘connectivity gap’ has needed an innovative solution.
Our Rango team of telecom experts recognised this gap in the market - 80 million people in the US do not have access to fast internet speeds for video calling - and sought to address the physical location connectivity gap by investing in local ISPs (internet service providers) to get everyone in these underserved areas high-speed internet connection.
(After all, you haven’t fallen off the face of the earth; you’ve just moved west and want to keep your business running from a more remote location and still stay connected to the rest of the world). At Rango, we totally get it and are here to ‘bridge that dreaded digital divide’
