WHAT IS OPEN BROADBAND?
Eastern Carolina Broadband, LLC, provides hybrid fiber and fixed wireless ISP solutions to your area providing fast and reliable broadband internet to the unserved and under-served.
Compared to fiber or cable, fixed-wireless is high-speed internet that uses radio signals rather than cables.

It is “sightline” internet that is faster than DSL, satellite, and cellular hotspots, with extremely low latency.

- Prices starting at just $39/month.

ABOUT EASTERN CAROLINA BROADBAND
Eastern Carolina Broadband, LLC, is a locally owned and operated company founded by three friends and colleagues. Incorporated in 2017, the company is fully owned by four experienced business owners, all who live and work in eastern North Carolina. They include Susan G. Myers, Al Rachide, Rodney Scott, and Jennings Outlaw. ECB was founded as a social investment into the area surrounding Pink Hill, NC, to ensure that students, families, farmers, and businesses in ENC would have access to high-speed internet.
ECB utilizes state of the art, fixed wireless technology to provide “last mile internet.” To make sure the internet is offered far and wide, ECB leases vertical assets such as water towers and grain elevators to broadcast high-speed internet directly to businesses and homes.
