US Army Veteran, Dillon Bomar, leverages communication expertise to bring better solutions to rural counties.
Press Release | Austin, Texas
Patriot Broadband welcomes husband and wife team, Dillon and Amber Bomar, to its family of franchisees. The partners are eager to provide faster, more reliable, secure, and affordable internet options to underserved pockets of rural Texas.
Dillon is an IT professional with more than 15 years of industry experience. He has worked in education and commercial IT. Amber is an expert logistics and supply chain manager with over 10 years of industry experience. The couple met in Germany while serving in the US Army and married a year later. As newlyweds, they spent the first 16 months of their marriage apart as Amber was stationed in Oklahoma and Dillon in Maryland. It was clear they had everything it takes to be a successful team capable of overcoming difficult obstacles.
The leadership team at Patriot Broadband looked favorably on their shared candidacy. Dillon demonstrated an aptitude for signal systems support, network administration, wireless communications, and cloud engineering. Amber proved to be an astute management professional and operations leader. These skills gave them the confidence to pursue building their very own internet service provider with the help of the Patriot Broadband team. Dillon recalls that the partnership came together very serendipitously.
“It’s funny, I came across the franchise offering when looking through my emails one evening,” remarks Bomar, “It has always been a goal of mine to start my own business and this seemed like a great way to
marry my skill set with a big need in the market. My initial feelings were substantiated by the leadership team.”
Dillon appreciated the Patriot Team’s insight on market selection, competition, and network feasibility. During his due diligence the franchise leadership provided him with peace of mind that there would be dedicated support for network design, equipment engineering, lease management, permitting, equipment staging, construction, network integration, technical training and more. The partners are actively working to build their new network and begin onboarding customers by early Q2 of 2023.
Patriot Broadband’s Chief Operating Officer, Greg Ford, is enthused by the prospect of continuing wireless densification in Texas. “Dillon and Amber are going to be excellent ambassadors for Patriot Broadband,” said Ford, “They bring a ton of complimentary experience to the table and we are pleased to have awarded these markets to another family of Veterans. It’s great to have a healthy concentration of franchisees going live in Texas. Our franchise community is blossoming and our franchisees will benefit from having a network of support a stone’s throw away.”
Today an estimated 20 million Americans lack access to broadband internet speeds. Some 30 million households have no internet connection at all. Together with its franchisees, Patriot Broadband looks to bring that number down one community at a time. To learn more about Patriot Broadband, visit patriotbroadband.com.
