We have also continued with expanding our fiber to the home and business. We've built new partnerships and new repeater sites. Hyper Fusion is now officially BBB accredited.

Hyper Fusion is also happy to annouce we have no lowered our standard circuit activation by more than FIFTY DOLLARS!!! Hyper Fusion is committed to serving the subscriber, and not over charging just because we can.

Basic Value Fixed Point Wireless MASSIVE Upgrade

We are officially changing up the way we do our service plans. As we have proven to be the trend setters in Central Texas, and specifically the Greater Highland Lakes area, we are doing it again.

One of the biggest things Hyper Fusion has over the competition is backing up what we advertise with actual speeds provided. Therefore, Hyper Fusion will ring in the New Year by upgrading EVERY "Basic Value" fixed point wireless plan to run "Up to" 100 Mbps Down and 50 Mbps up during low network / off peak hours at no extra charge. You do not have to do anything to receive this FREE UPGRADE in 2023!!!  All the other providers advertise "up to speeds", except ours are MUCH faster.  And what you pay for is your plan speed minimums.

NO LONG TERM CONTRACT REQUIRED, although contracts are available for a discount on your service, please call or inquire at support@hyperfusiontech.com with CONTRACT DISCOUNT in the subject line.

We are looking forward to another great year of further expanding our mission of providing the fastest internet in rural Texas and Fusing the Community!

Here is to another great year with Hyper Fusion, the fastest rural internet provider in Texas!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

We Are Officially BBB Accreddited!

That’s right folks, today we earned our BBB Accredidation and A rating.  We also hold 4.5 stars out of 5 review rating on the BBB.  Clearly, a marked improvement considering we started at an F rating due to the massive influx of new subscribers and only having limited staff to attend to them.  Most folks don’t realize but the new sign up rate really has not yielded at all since we started.  We’ve just gotten much better at processing and handling a large amount of subscribers.  Where others are now out of business completely and some getting their BBB accreditation revoked, we are getting ours, getting stronger, better, obtaining more and more subscribers from incumbant WISP’s and getting folks on the new pure digital rural internet we call Hyper Fusion. =)

Continuing Fusion Fiber Expansion In Kempner Market

Hey folks, we’re super excited to announce we’re on the final leg of our long haul fiber built to provide a second completely different brand new line up there which will also double our available capacity and provide a rock solid redundant network that will RARELY go down, if ever.

This fiber will serve Kempner, River Place, and lots of other areas as we move forward into the summer time and have already completed over a dozen new fiber to the structure direct Fusion Fiber services!  Our subscribers have been posting speed tests all over Facebook and in our private HFT Chat server for paying subscribers only.

Check out the photos below! =)

New Speedtest Server Launched

Hyper Fusion has officially launched a brand new speed test server!!  Chris, our awesome Technology Manager has configured and installed a shiny new speed test server on our website!  Make sure you check back next week as we'll be making a BIG announcement!  Click the big giant red test button or your can visit https://speedtest.hyperfusiontech.com After that, just select which server your closest too and away you go!


In addition, Hyper Fusion HIGHLY recommends you install the Ubiquiti Wifi Man App. You can download it for either Apple or Android.

Andice Repeater Site Fully Live!

New 10 Gbps Direct Fiber Linked Repeater Site Launched

Hyper Fusion is pleased to announce the completion of our Andice repeater site.  Located just a couple km outside of town to the west.  This site is directly linked with a 10 Gbps fiber line from that site ALLL the

Andice Coverage Map

way back to our brand new Burnet Gateway site where we've installed an all 10 Gbps router which is a massive upgrade, capable of delivering up to 40 Gbps of throughput out to the internet if we need it!  Below is a coverage map of our new Andice site and if we use our long range power dishes ( approx 400mm in radius and weight about 2 pounds ) we can pull 100 Mbps down and upload as far away as 25km from the site in most cases.  In a few cases even further.  Just click on the map below to view a high res version.

We also complete upgraded our Burnet Gateway site and constructed it right off the right of way south of Burnet, TX.  This new site boasts all brand new heavy duty high thru put enterprise gear and is also independent but directly connected to the new Hyper Fusion DataCenter.  We lease the office space but we have an enterprise grade server room, power wiring, data cabling, and fiber, all to notch for an insane amount of reliability.

Additionally, we were simultaneously working with one of our upstream peer providers to run a direct fiber link between our Burnet and Kempner gateway router sites so we have direct 10 / 40 / 100 Gbps link between our 2 networks allowing all subscribers to use either gateway should one or the other be down, and next time we go to screw with one of our gateway sites, we can first shift the traffic to the other fiber and then shut down the gateway site we're working on so no one loses service!

With us drilling more fiber and for longer and longer distances, Hyper Fusion now provides live service to 5 central Texas Counties ( Burnet, Lampasas, Llano, Bell, and now with this new site, Williamson County ) and we have 22 repeater sites, some direct fiber linked, some linked with high end gigabit licensed by the FCC wireless links, and others linked in ways I can't really discuss as they are trade secret and what sets us apart.  We really are THE BEST internet provider in the area with the most diverse stable network. =)

 

Check out some of the pictures in the gallery below of the Hyper Fusion team working on the upgrade!

The below photos are mostly of the construction of our Burnet Gateway site that feeds the Andice site.

Hyper Fusion is Hiring!!

Now Hiring!

We are now hiring for internet installers. No experience? No problem, we’ll give you paid training. If you’ve successfully pointed and locked a DirecTV or DISH Network satellite before, it’s pretty much just the same.

How much do we pay?

We pay WAYYY more than any other Fixed Point Wireless company out there. An average installer with no experience just starting out, should be able to plug 10 circuit per week once training is complete. 1 in the morning and 1 in the afternoon. With that in mind, most average installers clear $900 to $1100 just starting out because we pay by job. We pay extremely well, because as a well trained engineer, you are in charge of your own schedule and how many jobs you complete during the week, with a minimum requirement of 10 jobs a week.

How do I apply?

Quite simple really, just CLICK HERE . Right at the top of the page there is a link to get to the online application which only takes a couple minutes to fill out. Once submitted, if we like your application we’ll call you in for an interview at our office and then 1 to 3 “audition jobs” where we determine if the job is right for you. We pay $50 cash money for each audition install. Every installer is required to have a reliable vehicle big enough to haul around ladders and other equipment/tools necessary to do the job. A full list of tools will be provided to you during the interview that you will be responsible for having on you at all times when working.

Happy Valentine’s Day

 

We have officially made it past the election and into the second month of the New Year. Hyper Fusion is moving fast and we have gained our stride. I know with previous posts unrest has been shown, but as all things do, they work out how they’re supposed too.

A few new ideas…

We’ve been spitballing around is our Fusion Business Network to connect our customers who are business owners with the rest of the community. Any suggestions or recommendations for this can be submitted too fbn@hyperfusiontech.com

All ideas, suggestions, and questions are encouraged. This is a completely new platform we are wanting to get going to better help fuse our community together, so anything is helpful.

In other news…

Hyper Fusion is looking for new recruits to help install. Over 200 customers and plenty more waiting to get added on, there is plenty of work. If you or anyone you know is interested check out our website for instructions to apply: https://www.hyperfusiontech.com/jobs-careers/

Happy Valentine’s Day

Otherwise here’s a few thoughts about the history of valentines day. The history of Valentine’s day is unknown, and mostly spread by speculation. Having to do with Romans and Christians a bunch of years ago, it is mostly commercialized today. The irony in this holiday and every other one that is celebrated by the United States government and or recognized by commercialism, is that they are all about loving one another and being grateful for someone else. Whether we show it with chocolate or gift wrapped presents, a turkey dinner, or hiding/asking for candy, we should all take time to put the devices down and disconnect once in a while and be grateful for what we have here in the moment.

Lastly, let’s show some love for our Hyper Fusion staff! They’ve been busting their booty to get it done! Here’s to another great year at HFT!

Thanks,
Hyper Fusion Staff

Hyper Fusion Is Removing It’s Social Networking Presense

As some of you or a lot of you may have realized our facebook page is gone along with out Twitter and other social networking sites.  Many have been confused by this.  We chose to wait until we had our business alot more put together and things going in a good positive motion, which they are now.   The Co-Founders of Hyper Fusion believe there are much better avenues of subscriber acquisition and want to forge our own path moving forward.  Our choice has nothing to do with the current social climates that our nation is experiencing and has been part of our long term plans for some time now.  We just feel like now is the proper time to move forward in the next stage of our Company’s development.

We will no longer be making posts of any kind anywhere on any social networking site.  We will not make official announcements any place but on our own website in a post just like this one.  Thank you to everyone who supported our social networking profiles when they where up, but not we’re asking all our loyal followers to follow us on our own website. =)

The TV Wars Are On!

The Problem

A typical “cable box” from the 1970’s, as you can see, we’ve come along way.

Before the internet was invented, TV was easy.  You break out those bunny ears, slap them on your TV, and away you went.  No calling the cable man, no downloading an app, no trying to figure out what’s going on.   TV received its first “upgrade” in 1948 when the first cable services delivered broadcast TV channels in Oregon, Arkansas, and Pennsylvania.  In the 60’s, these “cable lines” started to expand into metro areas, and by the 1970’s, the very first television networks started to form.  Including HBO, C-SPAN, ESPN and a few more.  By the 90’s, cable was running strong with a 57% market density in subscriptions and nearly 80 networks running strong as well.

Then, in 1996, the dawn of the “cable modem” and broadband internet was introduced to the masses.  This new technology was poised to take over as the primary medium through which news, entertainment, and education would be delivered to consumers.  By 1998 consumers in the US had access to more than 170 networks and fiber became even more prevalent.    The National cable & television association ( NCTA ) claims more than 93% of Americans had access to cable TV at that time. However, as fellow rural Texans know not a single cable company will run lines to more than 60 million people who live in these rural areas.

Then, in 2007 everything changed.  A little known DVD rental company called Netflix started putting their movie catalogue online and came out with the very first streaming service.  This would be the begining of what would remake the television, entertainment, movie, and music industries forever. By this time more and more rural consumers were also getting mobile phones which made it possible to consume media on the go.  Something that had never happened before.

The War Begins

With media now consumable on the go, of course the US government started to get involved and this caused a huge increase in regulation.  As a result, a good chunk of the media, TV, and movie world fell apart.  Most may not be aware, but TV and radio FCC renewals are always processed in a staggered format. Cable companies have a license agreement with networks (like ABC, ESPN, Fox…etc)in order to create a channel line up.  As streaming became more prevalent, these distributors like, Spectrum, Cox, and Netflix decided with the new streaming media for delivery, traditional transmission methods were no longer needed.

Once streaming became the primary medium of delivery for media, other companies realized they no longer needed cable TV companies to distribute their productions.  Then came the introduction of Disney + and Disney pulled all of its content that it owned from Netflix.  Many other companies soon followed suit.  Now streaming companies had to get inventive to keep from losing lots of subscribers.  The primary means of doing this it seems, went to producing original content.  As a result, American’s started subscribing to multiple streaming services.  Now when you add all the different streaming services at an average of $20/service for 5 different ones to ensure you see watch what you want too, the total is as much as cable was!  $100 a month between streaming services and add-ons is what most people pay today, that’s more than most average cable modems.  It seems, TV, movies, and music, are doomed to be in disarray for many years to come.

Isn’t it ironic?

COVID-19 Is Still Going Strong

Business Update Notice

Burnet COVID-19 Cases Hospital
According to the Daily TRIM  and a story posted by Daniel Clifton, Burnet businesses are back to 50% occupancy due to increased hospitalizations from COVID-19.  We strongly encourage all our subscribers and fellow community members to respect this as it keeps us all safe.  This pandemic has really rolled over a lot of us.   Hyper Fusion is right there in the trenches with you folks.  We all need to help each other during times like this.

COVID-19 In 2021

As we move forward in 2021 Hyper Fusion will remain committed to practicing all CDC guidelines when it comes to social distancing.  As much as we don’t like it, it looks like this pandemic state is likely to last a lot longer then we all originally thought.  Hyper Fusion has decided to make long term preparations as well as permanently changing some of our standards and practices to ensure a higher degree of health and safety for our subscribers and fellow community members.

COVID has taken a huge toll on communities, schools, families, and businesses.  At times like these Hyper Fusion really encourages everyone to understand the times we’re in and really truly help your neighbor.  Why, because its the right thing to do.  After all, its literally in the name of our country “United” States.  So Hyper Fusion is encouraging all our subscribers and community members to remain united together to battle this pandemic. Everyone should do their part to ensure that we can wipe it out.  Not only that, but learn from all the mishaps as we move forward to prevent such wide spread devastation in the future.

2021 Is Here, lets put 2020 behind us and forge ahead!

Looking Back on 2020

Well folks, it’s been a crazy, wacky year this year, that’s for sure.  The Coronovirus has seemed to touch all corners of the globe and everyone’s lives.  Here at Hyper Fusion, we’ve been fortunate that we didn’t get shut down.  In fact, the government issued a decree for all internet providers to maintain and pick up operations.  Which of course, as I’m sure all our live subscribers know, we did just that.

At the close of 2020, we are stronger than ever. Hyper Fusion was founded and built in Burnet, TX by members of the community FOR the community. We will ALWAYS work to bring fantastic, reliable, and reasonably priced internet to everyone who needs it.

The Year Ahead

So what does Hyper Fusion have planned for 2021? Well, as we announced on Sep 19th of last year ( CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO ) We have been heavily developing out our Hyper Vision Cloud TV service and it’s been going great. We expect a full public Beta launch this fall, and over the summer a private Beta launch for Hyper Fusion subscribers only.  On launch day, we will have full On-Demand services for streaming movies, past TV series and episodes, music, audio books, and even 3D VR content.  We are working hard to finish securing as many distribution & exhibition licensees as we can. Keep an eye out for updates!

Hyper Vision will have all the local channels, the Ted Turner Network Channels, Viacom Channels, and USA Network channels for our live channel line up, as well as, Hyper Fusion’s own local channel. Live streaming will also allow us to control our own commercial air time! Soon Hyper Fusion will be looking for local businesses for TV commercial advertisements to promote our local businesses.

Full Network Audit

As we move forward through the rest of the winter, Hyper Fusion will be taking a heavy focus on the tower network and upgrade tower to tower links by completing projects such as: Equrina Fields, Blackbuck Ridge, Burnet East, as well as adding Pecan Valley, and Lampasas North. Hyper Fusion will also be activating more of the dark fiber we hold, fiber connecting Kempner River Place, Chica Ranch, Burnet, Council Creek, and Kingsland, as well as building several new repeater sites and expanding our network.

New installs are still being conducted, however appointments are approximately 4 to 8 weeks out.  Hyper Fusion has taken a strong effort to care for our existing subscribers to ensure they’re good to go for another 3 years.  Our primary objective is to give every subscriber, whether new or old, the fastest internet in Texas.

The New Gold Standard In Rural Internet

Before Hyper Fusion was ever around, the only internet in the Highland Lakes and Lampassas were a couple of ISPs who couldn’t make the speeds or reliability needed in our rural community. Hyper Fusion started in June 2017 with one mission, Better and faster internet. Whether it is through Hyper Fusion or someone else, our community deserves reliable internet.

As we approach our fourth year in business, there are more than 4 new 4G LTE resellers across Burnet, Lampasas, Llano, and Williamson Counties, 2 new fixed point wireless providers, and even a bigger big box brand who moved into the area at the end of 2020. So, our mission and our goal was successful.

As Hyper Fusion remains committed to continuously upgrading the network, we will stand alone as being the only rural provider in the Greater Highland Lakes area with a truly multi-honed network. A network that also has inter-connect services directly with content providers, giving a more seamless and stable internet connection for our end users. Hyper Fusion is the new Gold Standard in rural internet, and plan to remain so for many years to come!

From the HFT family to yours, we appreciate your patronage and look forward to what 2021 will bring us!

Thank you,

HFT Staff

Thanksgiving is Here

Holiday Hours

The holiday times for Hyper Fusion vary from year to year. Therefore each year as we enter the holiday season, we like to post our Holiday hours.

New Office Hours:  Mon – Friday 10am – 4PM CST

During the dates listed below all of our offices will be closed:

Thanksgiving: November 25 – November 30
Winter Break: December 23 – January 3

Holiday Special

We are offering an incredible special because other providers choose to sell their gear to their customers… If you come from another provider and Hyper Fusion can use your radio, then we will buy your radio from you.

YES! Hyper Fusion will BUY your wireless receiver station, the device that links you to the other provider’s wireless network for $300, which covers the activation charge for switching to Hyper Fusion.  All you pay is the first months services plus the sales tax.  Takes about 30 minutes with an onsite appointment.  We will also throw in 30 days of Free On-Demand Streaming (Movies, TV, Music, and Audio-books) in addition.  Something NONE of those other providers even have. (No equipment required to access the On-Demand Content).

Over the last few months, we have come to realize through speaking with new subscribers switching from the other providers and resellers in the area, that they do not deliver the speed and class of service we do.  Hyper Fusion uses a different upstream provider than all local competitors do, even the new 4G LTE providers. Reported speeds are a little higher, but rarely clear over 20 Mbps and drop completely hundreds of times a day.

What makes Hyper Fusion so much better than any other in our class?

Well, our service ACTUALLY hits the speeds we advertise and rarely drops.  We have the lowest ping times out of any provider in our class and service area, and the most stable services for VPN, streaming and Remote Learning, hands down.  Everyone of our latest convertees chose to go with the “other guy” until realizing that Hyper Fusion is the exception to Rural Internet.
There’s a reason why we are an award winning Rural Provider. We are constantly looking for ways to improve our network, subscriber care, and Streaming Media Services.

All you have to do to prove Hyper Fusion is first rate is to run a simple speed test from https://www.speedtest.net   It clearly lists the provider. Not only are the speeds far superior, we are in fact a Genuine Tier 3 Provider, and we hold a genuine AS Number and FCC Licenses. We are a true, purely digital multi-honed (we have 2 totally different fiber internet uplinks that are NOT provided by AT & T or Spectrum) Autonomous System and we are our own network and actively participate in Global Internet Routing.

Hyper Fusion was founded by local folks right in Burnet, TX in 2017 and we remain the ONLY provider who has actually brought NEW internet into the area that was not already there before.  We are often imitated, right down to our gear and equipment choices, but no one can duplicate what Hyper Fusion can do.  Why? Because Hyper Fusion focuses on the community and quality of service and not just making money. Our prices, format, subscriber care, and all facets of our network reflect our strict dedication to giving rural subscribers an alternative to big box data from a network born right where they live.
