About Us

Longway Broadband Services is positioned on being the most trusted name within Tennessee & Nationally for telecommunication consulting, telecommunication brokering service, and electronic distribution purveyor for Broadband, CAD/GIS Consulting, Engineering, POS, and Project Management.

Longway Broadband Services has discovered the needs of businesses and states, both large and small for broadband planning and understanding. As an executive for Connect-Arkansas Inc. it became apparent the very broad understanding and sheer complexity of the broadband issue with the population at large. So after further reviewing other state programs, passing of the 2009 Recovery Package, and working in the telecom industry it was apparent the drastic need for an outside consulting firm dealing with the public and private matters of the broadband issue. That's when Mr. Longway decided that he had an opportunity to help many other individuals, businesses, and states facing the same challenge, and Longway Broadband Services was born.

Since its inception Longway Broadband Services has expanded into other areas of business as they saw an opportunity in telecom brokering services and electronic distribution. We now are able to meet all the needs of any retail establishments "electronic needs" from the Internet connection, to the TV's hanging on the wall, and to the phones to help its customers. We also serve many of the Southeast governments and school districts with electronics (with special bulk pricing) as well as E-rate Internet & Phone connections.
