Cable Transition to AireBeam

First, thank you for checking in with AireBeam. On Thursday, March 31, 2016, AireBeam agreed to become the Internet, Television and Digital Phone provider for all of Gila Bend and the surrounding communities.  We understand that Cable America’s decision to cease providing broadband and television services in Gila Bend has is causing you significant concern.

AireBeam was first notified about Cable America’s decision on February 24th.  We have been working with Cable America and Vice Mayor Ron Henry since then to negotiate an agreement with Cable America to not terminate services as they previously announced, to be effective March 31, 2016.  We finished that agreement yesterday afternoon.  The agreement calls for keeping your Internet and your Phoenix TV Channels on.  Cable America turned off premium, cable-only channels for both legal and financial reasons.  The cable Internet and Television service that you will receive for the next couple of weeks until you transition to AireBeam will be free.

AireBeam has not yet installed any of its infrastructure in Gila Bend.  AireBeam has agreed to begin paying electrical, content license fees and internet fiber optic service costs necessary to continue bringing you Internet and Phoenix Television while AireBeam is building infrastructure over the next two weeks to provide services to all of Gila Bend and surrounding areas. AireBeam is a fixed wireless broadband service provider. Unlike a cable company which must lay coaxial cable along streets and then connect each subscriber to the cable, AireBeam uses microwave signals broadcast from towers to connect consumers to the services that we deliver including, Internet Access, Streaming Television and Digital Phone service. AireBeam will construct its services on the existing 192′ tower in Gila Bend during the week of April 4, 2016 and we will begin converting present cable customers who subscribe to AireBeam on Monday April 11, 2016 on a first-to-signup basis.

The first services that we will enable will be Internet Access and Digital Phone Service. If you were a digital phone customer of the cable company, we can transfer (port) your phone number over to AireBeam’s digital phone service, a process which takes 3-5 business days.

AireBeam will also offer you StreamVision television service, all of the Phoenix Television Stations shown below.  Optional additional services include HBO Now, Sling TV (ESPN, CNN, A&E, History and more).  Download this PDF to see the available channel line up.
