Coldwater, OH (July 6, 2021) - Hometown Cable headquartered in Coldwater, Ohio has signed an agreement with Indiana based GRiT Technologies to manage and reconstruct Hometown Cable's wireless and fiber Internet networks, and restructure various components associated with Hometown's day-to-day business operations.

GRiT Technologies was contracted in October of 2020 to evaluate all aspects of Hometown Cable's model. GRiT provided Hometown's ownership with strategic analysis, operating plan and budget, technical plan and budget, and marketing plan and budget. Hometown Cable's ownership agreed with GRiT's evaluation and vision which included completely rebuilding Hometown Cable.

GRiT Chief Technical Officer, Tom Kolb, has designed a superior wireless network that will provide subscribers a minimum of 25 Megabits of download speed per second (Mbps) and in many cases up to 100 Mbps. New state-of-the-art equipment is on order and will be attached to towers that feed Hometown's wireless network along with new equipment to be stationed at customers' houses. Kolb has also re-engineered HomeTown's fiber optic network. Once installed, the new state-of-the-art fiber optic technology will perform well into the future without disruption to service. The new technology will allow HomeTown to offer more services to customers and as the demand for bandwidth increases, Home Town will be able to be out in front of the demand. 

"Current subscribers will see a significant increase in their ability to function over the web," stated GRiT CEO, Roger Criblez. ''The millions of dollars being invested by Hometown's ownership will reshape the entire network so customers will have an Internet, television, and voice (telephone) experience they can successfully utilize without frustration."

The GRiT team has integrated the Hometown team with outsourced vendors for various components of the daily operations to reinvigorate quality and efficiency.

"We are just getting started," said Criblez, "and we have a way to go to get our entire customer base switched over, but change is in the air, and change in all aspects of doing business is coming to Hometown.
