After 4 weeks of consistent monitoring and testing we have an MOS VOIP Score of 4.5 which is excellent!

Skyler Ditchfield
Chief Executive Officer

Born in Ojai, California, Skyler Ditchfield’s entrepreneurial roots began at the age of six selling food, video games, lemonade, and basically anything else he thought people might buy, door-to-door and on the side of the road. He dove into the world of technology at the age of 13 when he set up a bulletin board system (BBS) to service 200 members of his local community with dial-up Internet. Throughout his childhood, he became increasingly fascinated with long-distance communications and computer networking. Directly after high school, Ditchfield accepted a Network Engineer II job at the Private Network Management Center (PNMC) of MCI Worldcom in Silicon Valley servicing high-level clients such as JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, Quotron, Reuters, and more. Although Ditchfield was the youngest technician at the maximum-security PNMC, he was quickly promoted to Network Engineer III after exceeding the entire staff in router reprogramming. When the company relocated to the East Coast, Ditchfield was one of two employees offered a transfer. Ultimately, he declined the offer and returned to Ojai where he proceeded to build a network business from scratch with $550 in startup capital.

Within 4 years, in a town of only 8000 people, Ditchfield grew his small I.T. services company to nearly 3M in revenue before selling his shares and moving on. During this venture, Ditchfield simultaneously won a six-figure government RFP, beating out a number of incumbent I.T. providers. In 2010, Ditchfield purchased a 50% share of an outside I.T. company where he quickly reworked operating procedures to maximize efficiency. With newly allotted time, Ditchfield was able to officially start GeoLinks in 2011.

Ditchfield currently serves as the CEO of GeoLinks, the fastest growing B2B Internet Service Provider in California, and Inc. Magazine’s 2017 Inc. 5000 NO. 5 Fastest Growing Telecommunications Company in America. GeoLinks delivers Enterprise-Grade Internet, Layer 2 Transport, Hosted Voice, and both Public and Private Turnkey Network Construction expertly tailored for businesses and Anchor Institutions nationwide. Under his leadership, Ditchfield has led the company to record more than 100% growth for six years straight, and is on track for a seventh. In 2017, Ditchfield spearheaded GeoLinks’ efforts in obtaining its status as a California Competitive Local Exchange Carrier (CLEC) public utility, and launched the company into the national marketplace.

With a clear passion and dedication to providing affordable broadband to Anchor Institutions across the country, Skyler was invited to speak at the Schools, Health & Libraries Broadband (SHLB) Coalition’s 7th Annual National Convention in June of 2017. He took the stage addressing how and why GeoLinks’ fixed wireless technology, ClearFiber™, is a viable solution when looking to close the digital divide in United States’ rural communities. Following his address, GeoLinks was officially inducted into SHLB membership where Ditchfield currently sits on the fundraising council.

Recognizing him as an industry thought-leader in the country’s evolving broadband discussion, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai formally appointed Ditchfield to the Broadband Deployment Advisory Committee’s Streamlining Federal Siting Working Group in August of 2017. With recent induction into these elevated platforms, Skyler plans to continue and advocate to increase the amount of e-rate business across the US, and is actively pursuing further national expansion for GeoLinks’ network.

Ditchfield is passionate about GeoLinks’ Mission Statement — “Always put the customer first, by serving them in the same way that everyone wants to be treated.” His innovative ideas have revolutionized the way data is transferred from global data centers to its final delivery destination. Ditchfield is committed to developing state-of-the-art advancements through the IT marketplace so the GeoLinks’ culture may one day be available to everyone.
