Rough Riders Communications Partners with Skycasters

Akron, Ohio – April 2, 2009 In the oil and gas fields of western Oklahoma, Rough Riders LLC is known as a high tech oilfield service provider. In addition to permanent and movable site housing, fresh and grey water handling, and septic systems and service, Rough Riders excels in site data and voice communications. Their military-trained networking and satellite communications staff spreads WLAN, satellite Internet and VoIP communications throughout the oil patch.

A year ago, Rough Riders sought the best and most durable broadband satellite Internet equipment, as well as guaranteed bandwidth. They found Skycasters. After deploying more than two dozen 1.2 meter dishes at customer sites across Oklahoma, Rough Riders’ Randy Bentley said, “Had I known the technology was this easy to deploy and operate, we’d have done this years ago.”

“America needs cooperation between all kinds of companies to get our economy back on its feet,” said Skycasters’ Mike Kister, “and when Randy approached me with a partnership proposal which ensured continued cooperation between our two companies, I knew it was just the kind of teamwork this great nation needs.”

With Skycasters equipment on site, Rough Riders’ customers enjoy the highest quality broadband satellite Internet available, for data or voice. Skycasters means never having to wait at peak times, and enough transmitter power to overcome effects of weather.
