What We Do
Wideband Group, founded in 2017, brought together industry professionals and skilled technicians that are passionate about delivering fiber internet to unserved communities. Our expertise covers every step of the process, beginning with the communities themselves. The broadband issue is solved at the local level; the towns, townships and counties that have a keen awareness of their residents' needs.
Wideband Group bridges the gap between commercial providers and a community in need, by providing fund-ready data to decision makers and advocating on the community's behalf. We ensure a project moves forward by providing fund application, engineering and project management support to providers and constructors. We make sure the fiber network is a success for both the provider and and the community it serves.

Ray spent the years prior to Wideband Group as president of a tower and fiber optic construction and integration company. Ray possesses an MBA from Michigan State University, enjoys outdoor activities and working with his two sons, members of the WBG team.

“Conway township is located in southern Michigan. Like many other rural townships, high speed broadband is not available. A fiber to the home team was assembled and Wideband was brought on board. I would recommend Wideband to any township considering taking matters into their own hands”
