SELECTED GATEWAY FOR SEA RANCH CONNECT SM

As the very informative emails detailing progress on constructing the Sea Ranch Connect network flow into our inboxes, it’s clear that we are making good progress towards providing Sea Ranchers with a state of the art, high performance and highly reliable Internet service. This service will not only revolutionize Internet access across the entire Ranch: it will also provide the essential 21 st century services to improve our real estate values and make The Sea Ranch an attractive option for the next generation of owners. Part of the process of constructing and implementing the Sea Ranch Connect (SRC) network has been the selection of the gateway device that will allow every home to be connected to the network. Many of you will recall that when we described the service to you initially, we said that owners would need to purchase a gateway box for around $150 that would provide the in-home connection to the SRC service. In close consultation with our operating partner, Gigabit Now (GBN), we have selected the Calix family of gateways, with the model most owners will choose priced at $156. This model does not have Wi-Fi capability. There is a higher end option with powerful Wi-Fi capabilities that will be offered at $225. However, the Calix 716GE-I at $156 will provide a solution that will meet all normal needs because many Sea Ranchers already have Wi-Fi routers for their current Internet service.
