Heroes see a need and take action – and change the world we live in. While many people try to make the best of things, they bring change that improves life for everyone right where they live. This quarter we celebrate three heroes who applied their time and talents to change communities: a campground, a suburb and a major city.
More than 50 people have received the Connectivity Hero Award since 2017. View all of the winners here.
While we spotlight these heroes, we know that there are many more people connecting the world. Please take a moment to nominate an individual or company who is making a difference with wireless connectivity in your area.
1Q 2022 Heroes:

Thanks to Jeff’s work, he got this response from a customer: “Desert iNET recently upgraded us to a Gigabit by Gigabit service on their new technology, and… My boys are over the moon! I had the house wired for Ethernet, and now their ping to the Fortnite servers is 2 ms, and speeds are 920 Mbps by 940 Mbps symmetrical!”

- Wing K. Lee, CEO YTL Communications – pioneering multi-gigabit fixed wireless in dense urban areas
“Like many cities with heritage structures, fiber deployment is quite difficult, and many businesses are stuck with legacy copper wires. The cnWave 60 GHz solution enables a multi-gigabit wireless mesh network — elegantly using existing structures — that has overnight transformed existing businesses and can easily scale to future demands.” – Wing K. Lee
