An ill wind? Breeze Broadband to shut down

28 Sep 2018

Breeze Broadband, the wireless ISP owned by Union Pacific Railroad, is shutting down its fixed-wireless access (FWA) service just one year after its initial launch, Fierce Wireless reports. The ISP, which used spectrum in the 3650MHz-3700MHz range to deliver broadband to nearby homes and businesses, sought to leverage the 32,000 miles of railroad track owned by Union Pacific across 23 states, with a view to deploy base transceiver stations (BTS) on the railroad firm’s land. Breeze launched in 2017 in Boone, Iowa and was expected to expand into California, Kansas and Texas.
