Mears Broadband Launches

Mears Broadband LLC, a turnkey fiber broadband network construction contractor, announced that as of Jan. 1, it has officially launched as a standalone entity under the Quanta Services umbrella.

As a standalone entity, Mears Broadband has more flexibility and agility in responding to the fast-paced, evolving needs of the fiber broadband industry.

Broadband providers across the United States are applying for funding from the National Telecommunications and Information Administration’s (NTIA) $42.45 billion Broadband Equity Access and Deployment (BEAD) Program to connect unserved and underserved communities to reliable broadband service.

With construction absorbing 70-80% of fiber deployment costs, Mears Broadband plays an important role in ensuring that BEAD proposals are feasible and successful. It provides service providers with broadband expertise, a turnkey fiber network infrastructure solution, and an ecosystem of skilled and vetted partners that together ensure projects are completed on time and within budget.

“At Mears Broadband, we put people first. To maintain that commitment to our customers and partners, we have to ensure we can respond quickly to market needs. Becoming a standalone entity will allow us to accomplish this,” said Trent Edwards, president of Mears Broadband. “We’re more agile, we can streamline decision-making, and we can address customer requests faster. That means that networks can be built safely and efficiently under the strictest requirements. Together with our network of expert partners, we’re building the digital now…even better.”

Mears Broadband LLC is a subsidiary of Quanta Services, the largest skilled labor force in North America, uniting over 200 operating companies to tackle the most complex infrastructure challenges in the world. Now as a separate entity, Mears Broadband LLC is Quanta’s largest telecom construction company.
