Company moving forward with telecommunications services

A company that provides communications services has moved into an office and manufacturing space in Grand Junction and installed two towers to provide telephone and Internet services to businesses and residences in the Grand Valley.

The company also expects to increase staffing with positions in installation, manufacturing and sales.

Adaptive Communications operates three divisions — Adaptive Internet, Adaptive Towers and STek Solutions — and operates offices in Grand Junction as well as Delta and Cedaredge.

Adaptive Internet offers Internet and telephone services, while STek Solutions provides software engineering services. Adaptive Towers manufactures self-supporting communications towers that provide cellular telephone and Internet services in remote areas. The towers require no in-ground foundation and can be quickly assembled and disassembled.

The company has been working with Mesa County and the Town of Palisade to obtain approval for tower construction. Two towers have been installed and three additional sites have been approved. The company also has been working with United Private Networks to tie into a fiber optic backbone installed on a main line from Palisade to Loma.

Adaptive Internet offers business and residential Internet connection speeds of up to 200 megabits per second in Mesa County.

The company was accepted earlier this year into the Rural Jump-Start Program in Mesa County, which offers tax incentives to businesses that create jobs.
