Race Communications rolled into town in the new Race “GIGA-MOBILE” for the annual “Phelan Phamily Phun Days” in Phelan, CA. The event included a carnival, bands, performances and a number of vendor booths. Race team members participated alongside 20-25 other vendors, which included The Pizza Factory, Maui Wowi, CERT, The Desert Keepers, Metro PCS and more.
We had a BLAST and plan on attending many more events in the Phelan area during our “Gigafy Phelan” Fiber Internet Project. If you’d like to stay up to date with Race events and construction please fill out our Inquiry Form.
Race will also be making a huge announcement at our upcoming town hall meeting, so mark your calendars!
Race “Gigafy Phelan” Town Hall Meeting
Friday November, 17th from 6-8pm at the Piñon Mesa Middle School Auditorium
One of the unique aspects about Race Communications is that we strive to serve communities that larger carriers have long ignored. The projects in the Mono County and Five Mining Communities are great examples of what makes Race stand out from the rest. The quaint town of Johannesburg has traits of the old west as it inhabits families, scholars as well as business owners. Lee Vining is a friendly High Sierra community which is a popular tourist destination only minutes away from Tioga Pass, Yosemite National Park, Mono Lake, Bodie (the official state ghost town) and Mammoth Lakes. Lee Vining is a non-CASF project fully funded by Race Communications.
During the application process to the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) for these projects, Race contended that available broadband was insufficient and the communities voiced dissatisfaction with mobile broadband as a substitute for wired broadband. Main issues for the need of reliable broadband included data caps, lack of bandwidth and reliability for functional use for education, healthcare, economic competitiveness and public safety. Race’s Fiber Internet solves many of these issues.
The great news is that installations are just around the corner!
For those customers who already have placed orders in Mono County, drops and installations are scheduled to happen towards the end of October in the Crowley Lake, Aspen Springs, Mono City, Sunny Slopes, Tom’s Place and Lee Vining. The Five Mining Communities consisting of Johannesburg, Randsburg and Red Mountain will also begin drops and installations towards the end of October. If your order has already been placed, one of our Race team members will be calling to schedule installations. If you haven’t placed an order, GET GIGAFIED today! or call 1-877-722-3833.
We at Race would like to thank you for your patience and are excited to bring reliable and affordable internet to your community!
The Fall season has arrived and Race Communications will be in attendance at this year’s Phelan Phamily Phun Days, Friday through Sunday on October 13 – 15th. This is just one of many events that Race will be in attendance while we prepare to “Gigafy Phelan”. Come out to the Phelan Community Center & Park and look for our Race Communications booth, say hello, pick up some Race swag and have a great time.
Following suit with Race’s mission statement we focus on “providing reliable, high-speed internet and advanced communications at an affordable price.” Each one of our projects are uniquely different so we strive to get to know the communities that we end up serving. Race spent three years to get this project approved and we have some great things in store while we go through each stage of our fiber to premise (FTTP) process.
Phelan Phamily Phun Days is a long standing tradition in the Tri-Community which consists of Phelan, Piñon Hills, Wrightwood and the surrounding areas. There will be live entertainment, carnival rides and the crowning of Miss Phelan 2017. This is a three-day event for the whole family to enjoy.
