as founder Nomad InternetJaden Garza and his wife Jessica Garza set out to create a way for people to stay connected to the internet even while they’re on the road, seeing the country with their RV. For travelers, it is not only difficult to get an Internet connection, especially in areas where rural conditions exist, but it is also a challenge to ensure privacy and security through random Internet connections. Nomad Internet has created a solution.
What is Nomad Internet?
Nomad Internet provides high-speed, wireless, low-latency broadband Internet to travelers. For those who travel to rural locations across the United States in an RV or those who simply live in areas where Internet access is limited, Nomad Internet provides a reliable solution. With a one-time fee and a monthly service fee, travelers gain the ability to access the web from just about everywhere, something that, prior to the company’s launch, was much more difficult.
With more and more people taking to the road to explore the country, it is becoming increasingly difficult to secure reliable internet on the go. Nomad Internet offers unlimited coverage with no throttling and download speeds of up to 200Mbps, for example. Several plan options exist, with different prices.
Why Nomad Internet is so important
In June of 2017, Jessica W Jaden Garza He set out to create a way to connect travelers to WiFi. According to Jessica Garza, “WiFi in RV Parks is absolutely terrible, and it takes away opportunities from the ‘full-timers.’ So, we set out to change that, one RV park at a time.”
The couple set out to find a solution and started with an RV park located in Johnson City, Texas. That opened in June 2017. The following month, they launched Nomad Internet at a second RV park located in Seguin, Texas. At this location, there were about 50 RV-ers working full time, and the park was struggling to provide a high level of internet speeds to keep people connected with even a small amount of internet access. To meet the needs here, Nomad Internet has launched LTE technology for the first time. Once this was installed, it provided the RV park with an additional 400Mbps of bandwidth, better meeting the needs of the people who live there. At the time of its launch, this type of technology was new and not used much. With the launch of Nomad Internet’s use of LTE technology, it will be possible to provide internet solutions to more communities.
Meet the needs of the Girl Scouts
One of the most impressive steps in the early journey of Nomad Internet development occurred in 2018 when Jessica and Jaden Garza were contacted by the Girl Scouts of America in San Jacinto. They were looking for a way to improve internet connectivity at the Girl Scout park.
The team set out to find a solution after other internet providers had tried and failed to do so. In fact, not only have they succeeded in providing a reliable internet source, but they have also done so at a fraction of the cost of what other companies charge. Jessica Garza shared that Girl Scout Park spent over $100,000 trying to solve the pre-Nomad Internet connection issue. They can do that for a fraction of that.
To achieve this seemingly impressive process, Jaden Garza worked with BaiCells Technology. Worked to create a deal for an LTE license group. They became one of the first owners of the BaiCells LTE Base Station. And once the park was in place, she finally had the internet access she needed.
While the simple ability to meet Girl Scout Park’s goals and needs was exceptional in terms of Nomad Internet’s reach, it was also an important part of the organization’s development. Demonstrate Jaden Garza’s ability to take service and company to the next level. The stations created were a novel solution and added to the organization’s reputation for using state-of-the-art technology.
Move to meet consumer needs
During its early founding, Nomad Internet focused heavily on meeting the needs of businesses, servicing RV Parks and other businesses that needed reliable Internet access, including remote access.
At the beginning of 2020, after achieving great growth and success, Nomad Internet took the step to integrate consumers’ needs. Focusing directly on the consumer would open up a new opportunity to meet the needs of not only the people staying in RV parks but also those who were more mobile and had a world view.
The question was, however, how would that work? Traditionally, the Internet is tied to a location, but for many people, being on the road is a very mobile process.
To meet this growing need, Jaden Garza has been developing a solution using the now most advanced access to LTE technology. He designed a solution that looked like what people were using routers with components for cellular service.
Nomad Internet has set out to offer routers that come with a cellular service component to them, more specifically. This, provided directly to individuals or families, was able to provide reliable connection and service to people in rural communities. With LTE, people in remote areas can access the internet they need. This provided a solution to people who were unable to find reliable sources of communication due to their geographical area and were able to do so.
Within many of these rural communities, there was a lack of fiber lines providing access to the Internet connection. With the new solution from Nomad Internet, it has been possible for people to get a reliable connection to the Internet using a method much like cell phones.
The move to offer this kind of direct-to-consumer business model opened the door for opportunities for Nomad Internet, but also created new needs for the company. This eventually led to further growth and better services.
Established and growing
In October 2020, Nomad Internet established a private office (a first for the company) in New Braunfels, Texas. This new private location was a clear indication of the company’s growth, as it had previously shared office space. The team has grown exponentially to continue to serve the needs of consumers across the region.
That month, Nomad Internet hit a massive milestone, reaching 10,000 customers. The company’s growth rate has been amazing, reaching 5,000 customers just in July 2020. In July 2021, the company has reached 20,000 customers.
In March 2022, the company entered its independent business. This was a great achievement for the team. Moving to a building on 10 acres of land in the Texas Hill Country showed how valuable and important the company’s service to its customers is.
CNET is taking notice
Nomad Internet’s growth is nothing short of exceptional, and it was soon noticed by CNET, an online review platform famous for its prestigious and rigorous review process. CNET showed value in the company, stating that the service was innovative, in demand, and reliable. The company acquired the CNET logo to use on its website to display the recommendation.
What makes Nomad Internet so different?
With more people on the road and traveling to see the world, being online is crucial. However, in many areas, it is sorely lacking. By providing up to unlimited internet, the company can meet the needs of most people, including those digital nomads or people who live in rural internet locations – more common than many people realize until they hit the road. Providing rural internet solutions like this creates an opportunity to keep people connected.
