AUSTIN, TX â€“ As part of a new branding effort Neo Fiber, which provides planning, engineering and developing strategies for community networks announced it is changing its name to NEO Connect.
â€œI founded NEO ten years ago with an aspirational goal of helping communities find the means to provide broadband over fiber,â€ said Diane Kruse, founder and CEO of NEO. â€œWhile fiber is no less important today to deliver on the promise of broadband and meet todayâ€™s and tomorrowâ€™s goals â€“ it is not the only option. NEO stands for creativity above all else. Creativity to deliver the connectivity that communities need.â€
The name change also reflects not only the broadband connections the company is helping to make possible, but also how NEO is connecting:
- Organizations and entities within communities to aggregate need and share costs
- Neighboring communities and regions to develop strategies and foster investments that exceed what one community can do on its own
- Communities with potential partners looking to invest
- Regions with funding sources
â€œWeâ€™re entrepreneurs as well as experts in developing solutions for broadband connectivity challenges. We take our job to develop a solution to regionsâ€™ broadband connectivity seriously. Itâ€™s our job finding needs, figuring out a solution, and develop a model that works,â€ explains Kruse. â€œThatâ€™s why communities across the United States rely on NEO Connect, from Washington State to Florida and right here at home in Colorado.â€
With this new identity NEO Connect is launching its new website at http://www.neoconnect.us where visitors will find success stories and resources to leverage their own efforts.
