Why is Medina County a good place for your business?
Medina County is growing and the towns need proper broadband infrastructure and speed to maintain, facilitate and ultimately increase that growth. People know that Internet capacity is arguably one of the most important economic resources of this century. The county and commZoom have a commitment to providing the bandwidth to impact digital learning, which positively transforms education at school and home, economic growth, improvements in telemedicine capabilities and overall quality of life.
What is your favorite thing about having a location in Medina County?
Everything about Medina County says “growth”, which is perfect for our new and growing startup company. We have said since our launch that we’re looking forward to being an asset for the communities within Medina County.
We are excited that the towns served within the County are able to say that they have the proper broadband infrastructure to serve the needs of current residents and businesses now and well into the future with our hybrid fiber infrastructure. It’s great to work with county and city officials as an additional resource to attract new businesses and workers who add to the vibrancy of the communities.
Our headquarters are in San Antonio, but we have technical facilities in Hondo, Natalia/Devine and soon in Castroville. With several members of our field personnel located in Medina County, we are truly a local provider with fast access to commercial and residential customers for support and fast installations. commZoom is proud to be a local provider and partner in economic development, educational growth and quality of life and ready to continue earning that trust each and every day on the job. Our towns served in Medina County are ready for the future – from the perspective of Internet bandwidth – like they’ve never been before.
Do you feel that Medina County offers enough resources for your business to succeed?
Yes. Much of what we do is adding resources to the communities within the county. We think of it as helping to build infrastructure. But it takes a collaborative effort and support. While we’ve only offered service for just over a year, the county has broadly embraced and supported our efforts and made us feel right at home. Our growth in that short time is emblematic of that sentiment. We feel this attitude is contagious and one that prospective businesses will feel as they look to Medina County as an option.
How long have you been in business?
commZoom has been in business for just over two years.
