Horizon Communications – Wireless internet for the Caribbean
Horizon Communications will be a high speed Internet Service Provider (ISP), based in Bermuda and servicing the Caribbean. We will utilize LTE fixed wireless for last-mile delivery to end users. Our service offering will include Internet speeds of up to 150 Mbps in 2018 and 300 Mbps and faster in late 2018 / 2019.
Alongside high speed Internet services, we will provide High Definition TV services as well as Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) Telephone services. This wireless network infrastructure will be delivered over a software defined radio system custom built using 4G LTE-Advanced (Release 13) standards. On completion of a successful capital raise, Horizon is scheduled to launch our business in Bermuda in mid to late 2018. Using the same technology, we will be expanding to the Caribbean and other Central American countries. It is expected that Horizon will be able to reach an estimated 95% of Bermuda’s homes and businesses with only a handful of towers. Marine offshore coverage will extend to 15 Miles from shore.
Our competition is using antiquated copper networks with huge overhead to maintain 400 miles of cables, requiring hundreds of employees and constantly battling salt corrosion and wind damage. The technology Horizon uses allows the company to remain efficient, keep staffing needs at a fraction of the competition and be extremely competitive and forward thinking in our markets. Horizon will have the full exclusive rights to this technology in our target markets, as Horizon continues working with our vendors. This gives Horizon a unique advantage to deploy this cost effective network at a price point much lower than was previously possible.
Business Profitability in Bermuda
With capturing only 15% of the home and small business market, within a few years in our initial launch, Horizon aims to bring in an estimated $43.7 million in gross revenues, with $26.2 million in gross expenses leaving a cumulative net income of approximately $17.5 million over that period.
As Horizon Expands into cell phone services and other markets, we expect our profit to increase substantially.
WHAT IS FIXED WIRELESS?
Fixed Wireless is an internet industry term to describe the network technology used to connect our customers homes and businesses to a wireless infrastructure that will be owned and operated by Horizon.
Horizon will utilize blockchain technology in a number of different areas:
* Payments – Accepting payments from customers in cryptocurrency, at a discounted rate compared to fiat currency, so as to help further crypto penetration and acceptance
* Payroll – Paying our employees and contractors in crypto
* Data Storage – Integrate blockchain technology like Storj or Filecoin into our customer portals to give customers a decentralized file storage solution that is encrypted
* VPN Services – Working with blockchain VPN solutions like Mysterium or Privatix so that customers have VPN solutions built into their internet service
* Re-invest into the CryptoCommunity – Horizon aims to re-invest the recommended earnings, under financial advice, into blockchain companies and ICO’s that Horizon finds will benefit the company and token buyers.
Using cutting edge fixed wireless technology that is currently being used to supply high speed internet around the world in major markets, Horizon once capitalized, can quickly deploy its fixed wireless solution, with very minor capital requirements compared to traditional telecom companies while driving down the cost of maintaining the network well below our competitors.
Once Horizon is actively using the available spectrum (wireless real estate), the company will have legal right and protections. This gives us tremendous advantage to competition and another hard asset to our balance sheet. Due to the long range, proper distribution and relatively flat terrain our 3rd party experts and surveys show Horizon can cover 95% of Bermuda and BVI with fewer than half a dozen towers. This enables us to keep our infrastructure cost low, while still providing redundancy in the event of unscheduled power outages (and concurrently, damage or equipment failure). Our technology can, at launch, provide 150mbs + per customer, which are speeds unheard of in these nations except for a select few. Horizon have partnership agreements with TV content providers and VoIP networks to have a full “triple play” product available at launch. Technology Deployment Horizon will deploy a Fixed Wireless Network called Long Term Evolution (LTE). LTE was originally designed for cell phone communications, but as the need for high speed data continued to push the technology, it has quickly in many cases surpassed copper and fiber networks. With LTE technology, the same reason you can use your cell phone inside a building with great internet speeds is because of it’s ability to handle interference or obstructions. LTE is able to take “multiple paths” back to the tower, bond multiple “channels” of frequencies
together and dedicate open channels to specific clients.
Horizon Communications is offering our Token, the HRZN Token, to buyers.
There is a significant bonus given during the pre-sale and the initial tiers during the ICO.
MINIMUM PURCHASE IS 0.15 ETH / 150 HRZN (customers should have enough ETH in their wallet to cover the minimum purchase plus network transaction fees). Horizon will only accept ETH during the initial presale. We plan to integrate Shapeshift before the ICO to accept a multitude of Crypto currencies(alt coins). Shapeshift converts non ETH cypto currency into ETH which can then be used to purchase the HRZN Token.
Advantages for Token Holders
* Discounts on Horizon Telecom Services, for those in and traveling through our coverage area
* Use of data storage services, at our data center and through our future partners at a reduced price
* VPN services through Horizon and our blockchain partners via Bermuda and other future locations
* Reduced costs of cellular service and data charges through Horizon and our worldwide telecom partners with our sim cards once established
* Purchasing services will be up to a 50% discount to the USD price when paid using Horizon Tokens
* Future dividends and buyback options for Token Holders. Owners of the Horizon Token (HRZN) who are living or traveling in the area’s Horizon has coverage will be able to buy services from Horizon (Internet, VoIP, IPTV etc), at a reduced price from market rates.
