Champions of Change
Amber M. Benson led the Broadband Incentives Program high-speed mobile broadband upgrade project for West Virginia PCS Alliance LC and nTelos Wireless. From application to implementation and reporting, Amber managed the $3.3 million investment that allowed the company to upgrade voice-only cell sites in rural areas of West Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania to high-speed mobile broadband. The upgrade not only provided affordable services to individuals living in rural areas but significantly minimized environmental impact by utilizing existing towers rather than building new ones.
