March 28, 2024
The service provider will bring service to another underserved California community.

unWired Broadband, an alternative broadband provider serving California, broke ground on its NextGen Fiber Internet network in Coalinga, CA.

This $11 million project will deliver Internet speeds of up to 1 Gbps and beyond to the City of Coalinga, totaling over 4,874 addresses. Construction will be completed in late October, with service becoming available in initial neighborhoods in April.

Fresno-based unWired has been connecting underserved communities since 2003. The provider’s fixed wireless Internet network has deployed over 200 towers across 16 counties in California, with two towers already serving Coalinga.

unWired will use its NextGen Fiber technology to provide symmetrical speeds and unlimited data. Businesses and multi-family dwellings can work with the company’s NextGen Fiber enterprise team to design a custom plan that fits their specific needs.

Coalinga is another city that has lacked access to cable or fiber Internet. 

“Our community is looking forward to reliable high-speed Internet, something we in Coalinga have not had before,” said Coalinga City Councilman Lonnie Hedgecock. NextGen Fiber will open opportunities for business expansion in Coalinga, and we are looking forward to a better future.”

UnWired will host a groundbreaking ceremony on April 3, 2024, at 11:00 am on the corner of Sunset and Coalinga Plaza (5th Street) to celebrate this exciting milestone in the City of Coalinga.
