Horvath Towers has signed a national build-to-suit agreement with Open Range Communications, signaling the start of a large WiMAX build.

OpenRange plans to use WiMAX to deliver wireless broadband to more than 500 un-served and underserved communities within the United States over the next five years. In January, the Greenwood Village, CO-based start-up received a $100 million investment from JP Morgan’s private equity arm, a prerequisite to a $267 million Broadband Access Loan from the USDA’s Rural Development Utilities Program (RDUP).

Horvath will partner with Open Range by developing tower sites in the Mountain Region, Midwest and Southeast, enabling the deployment of the Open Range network.

In May, customer service company Cloud 10 announced that Open Range had selected it to provide work-from-home customer care professionals. (For more background on Open Range, click here).
