(MINNEAPOLIS, MN and KERMIT, TX; January 30, 2023) — LocaLoop Inc. announces a partnership bringing world class broadband to all homes and businesses in Kermit, TX.

LocaLoop has signed a 20 year Right of Way Licensing Contract with the City of Kermit to incorporate Fiber To The Home (FTTH) and Small Businesses to complement its existing synKro™ proprietary 5G fixed wireless broadband Internet service. By applying this dual-path model for “the last mile” the company can fulfill the government’s goal of offering ubiquitous coverage in the rural community of Kermit and its surroundings.

Working through its Field Operation Office in Kermit, TX, the contract builds upon a successful operation with high customer satisfaction during the last two years providing the synKro broadband Internet service wirelessly.

“We are excited about the opportunity to further expand our presence in Texas and beyond,” said Carl-Johan Torarp, founder and CEO of LocaLoop. “Looking forward to working together with the city’s public works department deploying the network over the next 2-3 years. We are future proofing the existing synKro branded broadband Internet service by incorporating FTTH which offers low latency and speeds up to 1 Gbps and more, ideally suited for any modern web apps or cloud services.”

“Reliable and affordable high-speed Internet is as important to families and businesses in rural communities as anywhere else,” said Frankie Davis, Kermit city manager. “We are looking forward to working with LocaLoop and its synKro Broadband Internet service enabling us to expand our economic development activities by attracting new businesses and people to the city, as well as offering high-speed Internet connectivity to the citizens already living and working here.”

“We are moving Kermit into the digital transformation era, removing all geographical barriers to the world. The innovative synKro cloud-automated service makes that a reality for us, and at no cost for the city. In fact, when subscribers use the service, we are making recurring revenue on a monthly basis,” said David Holbrook, Kermit mayor.

LocaLoop has affiliated with TAP Financial Partners to provide investment and merchant banking services to fuel its nationwide growth agenda.
