Local internet service provider relocates to Camarillo, creates job openings

Original Article

A local internet service provider is expanding throughout the region and aims to become one of Ventura County’s leading technology businesses.

GeoLinks, which was created by Ventura resident Skyler Ditchfield in 2011, began as a two-person team interested in providing internet service to rural residents overlooked by the nation’s larger internet service providers. Since then, GeoLinks has hired over 50 employees and shifted its focus to providing internet packages to large businesses, including Amgen Inc. and several regional McDonald’s restaurants.

Although the privately-owned company’s internet services are largely restricted to businesses, GeoLinks’ continued growth has resulted in a steady stream of job openings for people with technology and customer service skills, according to Ditchfield.

“We started with two people, have over 50 now and are still hiring nonstop,” Ditchfield said in an interview. “We’ve got everything from sales opportunities to customer service, to field tech opportunities, installation and infrastructure technicians, help desk and eventually those jobs can open up to middle and upper-level positions in the company.”

The Camarillo-based business relocated from Ventura to 251 Camarillo Ranch Road last week to house its rapidly growing staff. The building, which was previously owned by mobile video game developer Zindagi Games Inc., includes amenities such as an exercise facility, basketball court, game room and kitchen. GeoLinks’ expanded office matches its growing coverage. The business services companies from northern Ventura County to San Diego and is beginning to spread to other states, such as Arizona.

Beyond job opportunities, Ditchfield considers GeoLinks’ expansion to be an important example of how local businesses can provide compelling alternatives to national companies. Ditchfield stressed that customer service played a major role in his company’s success, and said that GeoLinks’ local focus allowed the business to thrive despite competition from larger internet service providers such as AT&T and Verizon.

“People are fed up with the poor customer service and tech support from the big guys,” Ditchfield said in an interview. “The whole methodology is to get off the phone and move you away, while we’re actually trying to solve the problem. Customer service is why we win (business) accounts, so it’s incredibly important to us that we maintain that level of service.”

Going forward, GeoLinks aims to begin providing internet options to California residents, as opposed to just businesses, in early 2018, with a particular focus on rural communities. For more information about the business, visit GeoLinks’ website.

GeoLinks acquires One Stop VoIP, furthers national strategy

GeoLinks, an emerging hybrid wireline-wireless service provider focused on business customers, has purchased cloud-based provider One Stop VoIP, signaling the next step toward becoming a larger national service provider.

By acquiring One Stop VoIP, GeoLinks will be able to add Hosted Voice to its growing cadre of data services. Under the terms of the deal, which is GeoLink’s first, the service provider will migrate all of One Stop VoIP’s key staff, existing customers, Unified Communications capabilities, and IT infrastructure.

Now that it has finalized the acquisition, GeoLinks said that it plans to launch a full set of hosted voice services by the end of the third quarter of 2017.

To ensure the transition into becoming a voice provider, GeoLinks named One Stop VoIP CEO Dexter Allen as senior director of VoIP business development. Paul Kasavets, COO and co-owner of One Stop VoIP, will join GeoLinks as senior director of VoIP operations. Allen and Kasavets will join the GeoLinks team in their headquarters on July 12, 2017. GeoLinks said that all One Stop VoIP customers will continue to receive consistent service coverage during the transfer, while GeoLinks’ clients can expect new Hosted Voice deployment by the beginning of September.

GeoLinks CEO Skyler Ditchfield told FierceTelecom that One Stop VoIP products and services align well with the company and its fixed wireless product, ClearFiber.

“We’ll be adding a new offering, which is VoIP, to our product set in the next 45 days,” Ditchfield said.

The acquisition follows the company’s effort to rebrand itself from California Internet LP to GeoLinks as well as its launch into the national market, induction as a competitive local exchange carrier public utility and headquarter relocation.

Besides offering new VoIP capabilities, the service provider is expanding its federal government capabilities as part of its national expansion effort.

“We’re really expanding the government division and it represents about a quarter of our business so it is taking off rapidly,” Ditchfield said. “We’re going to be using that to pull us into new opportunities on a national scale over the next year or two.”

Internet Service Provider GeoLinks Announces Acquisition of One Stop VoIP

California’s fasting growing B2B Internet Service Provider (ISP), GeoLinks, announces acquisition of Los Angeles telecommunications company One Stop VoIP.

VENTURA, CA (PRWEB) JULY 12, 2017

California Internet L.P., DBA GeoLinks is thrilled to officially announce its first ever acquisition of up-and-coming cloud-based Telecommunication Service Provider, One Stop VoIP. The acquisition includes an all-inclusive migration of key staff, existing customers, Unified Communications (UC) capabilities, and IT infrastructure, enabling GeoLinks to offer Hosted Voice for the first time.

With contract negotiations finalized, GeoLinks forecasts to launch a full scope of Hosted Voice services by the end of third quarter 2017. To assist in future voice operations, GeoLinks is proud to welcome aboard Founder and CEO of One Stop VoIP, Dexter Allen, as Senior Director of VoIP Business Development. Additionally, GeoLinks welcomes Paul Kasavets, COO and Co-Owner of One Stop VoIP, as Senior Director of VoIP Operations.

“This has been a historic year for GeoLinks so far,” said GeoLinks’ CEO Skyler Ditchfield. “Recently announcing our company rebrand and launch into the national market, One Stop VoIP represents our first official acquisition. This search has been exhaustive, not just to find the right company but to find an executive team that moves at our pace and fits our culture. It’s not a small feat that GeoLinks has achieved 100% growth six-years-running. Throughout the onboarding process it was evident that both Dexter Allen and Paul Kasavets shared the same capabilities and passion for innovation that GeoLinks values so highly. We have been looking to add Hosted Voice to our service offerings for some time now. One Stop VoIP’s products and services co-align perfectly with GeoLinks as a whole, and with our flagship fixed wireless product, ClearFiber™. Overall, everything about the acquisition is a natural fit.”

Since company inception in 2011, GeoLinks—a licensed, bonded, and insured general contractor—has been entirely self-sufficient, bringing everything in-house to ensure proper service deployment from end-to-end. Coupled with superior US-based customer support, GeoLinks’ acquisition promises continued consistency and superior, reliable Hosted Voice services.

“Our strategic partnership with GeoLinks will allow us to deliver a complete telecommunication solution to businesses, catapulting us to a leading position in the industry,” stated Allen. “One Stop VoIP delivers outstanding value, continuous innovation, and an exceptional client experience. We are passionately committed to helping GeoLinks’ current and future clients grow by equipping them with the strategic communication tools they need to succeed. Both companies’ core services are essential for any business. Prior to the acquisition, we both were missing a piece of the puzzle. I am thrilled that we can now deliver the whole picture to businesses in one convenient package.”

Allen and Kasavets officially joined the GeoLinks team in their office headquarters on July 11th, 2017. All former One Stop VoIP customers will continue to receive dependable service coverage during the transfer, while GeoLinks’ clients can expect new Hosted Voice deployment by the beginning of September 2017.

California Internet Announces National Launch And Name Change

CEO Skyler Ditchfield’s Interview with SuperbCrew.com

Founded in 2011, GeoLinks is the fastest growing B2B fixed wireless ISP in California. The company recently rebranded from California Internet to GeoLinks coinciding with its launch into the national market. GeoLinks offers unmatched speed to delivery and a wide range of internet solutions for businesses at competitive prices.

Below is our recent interview with Skyler Ditchfield, CEO of GeoLinks:

Q: Skyler, could you tell us something more about the company and your history?

A: I started California Internet, L.P. DBA GeoLinks out of my weight room in Ojai, California with my cousin and business partner Ryan Hauf in 2011. We decided early on that we were going to build our Internet Service Provider (ISP) business model to compete head to head with all the big guys—which is very untraditional for a small ISP provider. We decided that to be successful and to make our goal of becoming a major national carrier a reality, we needed to penetrate the most competitive markets. So, where did we head first? The dense Los Angeles metro area.

Over the past six years, our innovative flagship product, ClearFiber™, our superior customer service, and our industry-leading Service Agreement has led us to become the fastest growing business to business (B2B) ISP in the state, servicing more coverage area than any other single provider. Due to demand, I am ecstatic to say that we officially became a CLEC and launched into the national market this June 2017.

Q: How did you achieve such accelerated growth and expansion?

A: From the very beginning we started with asking the question, “Why does a customer choose an ISP?” We found that it comes down to competitive pricing, speed to delivery and ease of interaction. Speed to delivery has become a huge one for us because we can deliver circuits in a matter of days where larger ISPs can make businesses wait for months on end. Additionally, we excel at customer service. We’ve developed what we call “The GeoLinks Difference.” It starts with our Golden Rule: We treat you like we want to be treated. It’s a simple idea yet it’s the very foundation of our business. We are friendly, knowledgeable, efficient, and always available. Finally, we are obsessive innovators. Our team knows how things work inside and out, and we never stop looking for ways to improve our network and technology.

These are all the same reasons that contribute to why we have excelled in the wholesale market. We start by asking providers how we can align our processes in-house to best service their needs. Ultimately, we have defined all of the industry’s pain points—from both a customer and IT perspective—and are addressing them full force.

Q: Can you give us more insights into your products?

A: Anyone can visit our website and see an overview of our services. What I would like to focus on is our flagship product, ClearFiber™. There is a large misconception in the market about fixed wireless. People still think it’s not a reliable technology, when in reality, that’s just not true. It is an ongoing challenge for our company to re-educate the market that the problem doesn’t lie in the technology itself. In fact, the technology has been around since the 60’s and is actively utilized by large companies in the New York Stock Exchange and Militaries around the world. The real problem falls with improper installation. That’s why, at GeoLinks, we decided to bring everything in-house. We’re general contractors, and from land procurement, to building the actual towers, to customizing network configurations, our team ensures that the technology is deployed properly. When deployed correctly, ClearFiber™ is the most effective and superior solution available on the market.

Q: You’ve recently announced the company’s rebranding; tell us something more?

A: We’ve reached a pivotal moment in our company’s history—overwhelming demand has pulled our company outside of state borders. Wanting a name that isn’t geographically correlated, we ultimately decided to rebrand as GeoLinks—“Geo” meaning Earth in Latin and “Links” because we are linking the world with the most advanced connectivity available today.

Looking at our company timeline, I am amazed to say that this company started with humble beginnings, then moved to a 110 sqaure feet office, then to 800 sq. ft. We’re currently in a 6,000 sq. ft. office and are officially getting ready to move our headquarters into an incredible 38,000 sq ft office building this July. Featuring a fully-equipped employee gym, basketball court, spacious kitchen, game room, and much more, this new office is a direct representation of our cutting-edge company culture and accelerated growth.

Q: What are your plans for next 6-9 months?

A: Aside from our exciting move and introduction into the national market, we’re officially beginning to build out our 5G Network. In fact, we hit the go button this past week. We are forecasting to reach 50% deployment within the next three months and complete deployment by the end of the year. This means we’ll be able to offer up to 10G capacity over our fixed wireless networks in the greater Los Angeles area. We’re just about ready to launch Hosted Voice as well.

Finally, we are continually working to close the digital divide by providing internet to rural anchor institutions and actively lobbying in Washington, D.C. for the FCC to make more spectrum available to smaller and mid-sized ISP’s.

Q: What’s the best thing about GeoLinks that people might not know about?

A: We’re way more than just your typical ISP. From land procurement, to construction, to contract negotiation, to permitting, to building our own solar powered towers from the ground up, we do everything in-house. This allows us to go into areas that no other provider can reach—especially in areas that would typically require grid power.

Also, we focus heavily on company culture. I am very aware of the fact that we spend more than one-third of our lives at work these days, so it’s important to me to give back to my team by creating a fun work environment that makes them eager to come to work every day.

The Ins and Outs Of Fixed Wireless Technology

(And Why Your Business Should Be Using Fixed Wireless)

what is fixed wireless - geolinks.com

In the digital age, most businesses’ success and productivity rely on having fast, secure and reliable Internet connections. In fact, 70% of Americans reported that they used the Internet on a daily basis in 2016. And while the market is clearly saturated with various high speed Internet options to choose from, one innovative technology proves to be far superior and more reliable than the rest: Fixed Wireless Internet.

So, What Is Fixed Wireless Internet?

Simply put, fixed wireless provides high speed broadband Internet access to a single location via radio waves. By utilizing antennas, towers and an express line of sight (LoS) to transmit point-to-point signals, fixed wireless technology eliminates the need for costly terrestrial cable, satellite feeds or local phone lines.

Why Doesn’t Everyone Use Fixed Wireless?

There is a large misconception in the market about fixed wireless—people think it’s not a reliable technology. It is an ongoing challenge for Internet Service Providers to re-educate the market that the problem doesn’t lie in the technology itself but rather improper installation. In fact, the technology has been around since the 60’s and is actively utilized by large companies in the New York Stock Exchange, law enforcement and Militaries around the world. When deployed correctly, fixed wireless is the most effective and superior solution available on the market.

How Is Fixed Wireless Different Than Other Internet Options?

For starters, fixed wireless infrastructure can be assembled in a fraction of the time, drastically improving Internet Service Provider’s (ISP) speed to delivery and installation time. With an accelerated turnaround, select ISP’s are able to penetrate new markets faster than those deploying more traditional networks. Specifically, fixed wireless networks can access and service rural communities that other technologies simply can’t reach. For companies requiring services in populated urban areas, fixed wireless provides a dedicated and reliable connection.

How Will My Business Benefit From Fixed Wireless Technology?

Fact: In a world reliant on dependable, high-speed Internet, digital downtime can cost a company anywhere from $22,000 to $100,000 per minute.

Live in an area that’s quickly expanding? Construction may cause your fiber optic connection to consistently drop. Work in a communal office space or building? Your Internet could slow down considerably simply because everyone is sharing the same fiber optic line. Can you predict the weather? High winds, snow or a rainy day could disrupt your satellite Internet service for hours or days on end.

Enter: Fixed Wireless Internet.The Ins and Outs Of Fixed Wireless Technology - GeoLinks

When deployed and engineered properly, fixed wireless is unaffected by weather, eliminates shared connections, and avoids potential downtime caused by construction. Proven to be just as fast, if not faster, as fiber optic networks, GeoLinks’ Fixed Wireless network provides businesses with a dedicated connection that boasts 99.999% uptime, ultra-low latency and virtually no jitter. Secure your company’s competitive advantage today by making the switch to fixed wireless.

Citizens Broadband Radio Service in the 3550-3700 MHz Band

Before the Federal Communications Commission Washington, DC 20554

In the Matter of Petition for Rulemaking to Amend the Commission’s Rules Regarding the Citizens Broadband Radio Service in the 3550-3700 MHz Band

COMMENTS OF CALIFORNIA INTERNET, L.P. DBA GEOLINKS California Internet, L.P. DBA GeoLinks (“GeoLinks” or the “Company”) submits these comments in response to the Public Notice issued June 22, 2017.

I. INTRODUCTION AND SUMMARY

GeoLinks is proud to service the largest coverage area of any single fixed wireless Internet service provider (“ISP”) in the state the California. While the Company had previously focused on business and enterprise customers, in 2016, GeoLinks expanded its customer base to include nearly 30 rural school districts and surrounding communities throughout the state that previously had not had access to any high-speed broadband service. As the Company expands, it strives to reach more unserved and underserved areas within California and beyond. GeoLinks provides these comments to urge the Commission to adopt rules with respect to the 3550-3700 MHz Band that allow small and mid-sized ISPs to deliver competitive high-speed broadband services to help close the digital divide.

II. THE COMMISSION SHOULD DEVELOP RULES THAT ALLOW SMALL AND MID-SIZED SERVICE PROVIDERS TO OBTAIN SPECTRUM LICENSES

Millions of Americans lack what is, by today’s standards, considered high-speed broadband access – this is especially true in rural areas. Sparsely populated rural areas are not well suited for traditional, wired broadband service given the cost to build and deliver a cable/ fiber-based network. With the emergence and growing popularity of fixed wireless technology, new opportunities to connect rural communities are becoming available. However, there is a need for public policy that allows for these opportunities to become realities to benefit rural America.

Traditionally, fixed wireless ISPs have operated in unlicensed bands (i.e. 2.4 and 5 GHz). While this has allowed for successful deployment of internet services in some areas, the availability of unlicensed bands is not a one-size-fits-all option. Increased use of the unlicensed bands has created congestion over the bands that causes slower internet speeds and network interference. In order to ensure competition within the residential and rural broadband markets, the Commission must develop policies that provide for regulatory certainty among new technologies and non-traditional ISPs to drive innovation and investment.

GeoLinks urges the Commission to craft a spectrum licensing regime in the 3550-3700 MHz band that ensures that small to mid-size fixed wireless providers have the opportunity to obtain dedicated spectrum resources in order to ensure competition and diversity of services to meet the differing needs of differently situated communities (i.e. rural vs. urban).

A. Geographic Areas Should Be Determined in a Manner that Promotes Competition and Accounts for Regional Broadband Needs

Both T-Mobile and CTIA assert that Partial Economic Areas (“PEAs”) be used when licensing Priority Access Licenses (“PALs”) contending that using census tracts to license PALs would cause unnecessary complication and create the risk of interference.2 GeoLinks does not oppose the use of PEAs in licensing PALs. However, the Company urges the Commission to consider the unique characteristics of rural PEAs vs. more populated PEAs when determining how those areas should be licensed. Specifically, the Commission should consider whether rural areas would benefit more from using smaller geographic areas (such as by census tract or county) vs. PEA if it would ensure more timely broadband access to rural communities. Granting PALs on a smaller geographic basis in certain areas may encourage small to mid-sized companies to apply for specific rural areas where they may be better suited to provide high-speed broadband access or have more specialized, regional expertise over larger, national service providers. Moreover, the Commission should consider the risk of spectrum warehousing in areas where the entire PEA may be bid on but not utilized for broadband deployment or other uses. In these areas, the Commission may consider segmented PALs or spectrum sharing arrangements to ensure that this public resource is being used effectively. Regardless of the geographic area chosen, the Company urges the Commission to consider these factors when developing its rules to ensure the most efficient use of this spectrum band.

B. License Terms Should Be Granted in a Manner That Promotes Competition

GeoLinks agrees that a 10-year term is a reasonable term for licensing within this band. Short license periods create regulatory uncertainty that stifle investment in networks and equipment. This will all but ensure that this spectrum will not be utilized properly. However, longer license periods will drive down the cost of equipment and allow ISPs to invest in the network elements necessary to reach rural communities. Because development of networks over this band will take time to roll out, a longer license period will help ensure ISPs’ ability to realize return on investment and, in turn, re-investment in their networks. In creating these 10-year licensing schemes, however, GeoLinks urges the Commission to ensure that such licenses are allocated in ways that allow for robust competition. Specifically, spectrum resources should not be available to only those companies with large amounts of capital or those who would purchase it as an asset with no intention of utilizing it.

C. PALs Should Be Granted Regardless of the Number of Applicants

GeoLinks agrees with T-Mobile that all PALs should be available at auction, regardless of the number of applications received.3 In 2016 and 2017, GeoLinks was awarded grant funding through Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California (CENIC) to connect nearly 30 rural schools in some of the most remote parts of California. The Company worked with CENIC to provide service to these schools in areas where no other provider was willing to provide a high-speed broadband solution. This example is indicative of the fact that some areas may be of little to no interest to most carriers but may present a unique opportunity for one. The PAL licensing process should not be denied to the one interested carrier solely because there is only one. This will surely create gaps in rural, sparsely populated parts of the country that could benefit from an interested service provider. As T-Mobile suggests, if the single applicant is otherwise qualified, it should be granted a PAL.

III. CONCLUSION In conclusion, GeoLinks urges the Commission to adopt rules with respect to spectrum licensing in the 3550-3700 MHz band that allow small and mid-sized ISPs to deliver much-needed high-speed broadband services to rural and underserved areas.

California Internet Expands Nationally Rebranding as GeoLinks

Southern California’s fastest growing B2B ISP California Internet expands nationally relocating company headquarters and changing company name to GeoLinks.

VENTURA, CA (PRWEB) JUNE 13, 2017

California’s fastest-growing B2B ISP, California Internet LP, is excited to officially announce its new brand name, GeoLinks. The company’s rebranding coincides with a variety of notable company milestones including its official launch into the national market, induction as a Competitive Local Exchange Carrier (CLEC) public utility and headquarter relocation.

“We’ve reached a pivotal moment in GeoLinks’ history,” shared GeoLinks Chief Revenue Officer Phillip Deneef. “We chose to migrate away from the name California Internet due to overwhelming demand pulling our company outside of state borders. Wanting a name that isn’t geographically correlated, we ultimately decided on GeoLinks—Geo meaning Earth in Latin and Links because we are linking the world with the most advanced connectivity available today.”

With the company’s accelerated growth, GeoLinks officially welcomed its 50th employee in June and expects to employ upwards of 100 within the next 18 months. In effect, GeoLinks is thrilled to simultaneously announce its national headquarters are moving to Camarillo, California. The recently acquired 38,000 sq ft office building, previously home to Zynga Games, features a fully equipped employee gym, basketball court, spacious kitchen, break room, and much more.

“Our new office is a direct representation of our cutting-edge company culture,” said GeoLinks CEO Skyler Ditchfield. “In addition to the incredible amenities, I plan on bringing a wellness coach and private chef on board to promote health and wellness throughout the entire staff. I am very aware of the fact that we spend more than one-third of our lives at work these days so it’s important to me to give back to my team by creating a fun work environment that makes them eager to come to work every day. GeoLinks is bringing ‘Silicon-Valley Style’ to Ventura County.”

What’s next for the booming ISP? With Ditchfield and GeoLinks’ instrumental lobbying efforts in the recent passing of AB-1665 Telecommunications: California Advanced Services Fund, otherwise known as the Internet For All Act (IFAN), and GeoLinks’ California Public Utilities Commission Certificate of Public Convenience & Necessity, GeoLinks will continue to expand coverage and service offerings while developing strategic partnerships with national carriers and federal level agencies such as HUD, the Department of Interior and the Department of Education.

“The certificate from the California PUC is an important step for GeoLinks as it allows it to not only provide fast Internet service to customers but also Voice over Internet Protocol services,” said its regulatory counsel, former CPUC and FCC Commissioner Rachelle Chong. “This certificate makes GeoLinks eligible to provide E-rate Internet and voice services to eligible schools, libraries and health care providers under the FCC program, and to provide California Teleconnect Fund services under the CPUC public purpose program. Given a goal of the company is to help bridge the digital divide for rural schools and libraries, this is an important milestone.”

GeoLinks assures customers and partners that its underlying corporate identity will remain unchanged for all legal and regulatory purposes issuing no major alterations to their contracts, support or contact information.
