Summit Broadband Proudly Participates In Hurricane Matthew Food Drive & Assistance

While Summit Broadband employees and customers were very fortunate to miss the full effects of Hurricane Matthew, on October 6th of this year, our parent company, Cable Bahamas, suffered extensive damage, particularly on Grand Bahamas Island. The storm destroyed a significant part of their network and put thousands of customers out of service. Cable Bahamas immediately implemented their disaster recovery plan and Summit Broadband, particularly Blaine Schafer and Paula Meads, were a part of those recovery efforts by helping coordinate sub-contractors from Gulf Coast and material from the United States to the Bahamas. In addition, we sent two of our own employees, Scott Souser and Walt Malone, to provide direct supervision, on site, to assist in the restoration.

Scott and Walt have been working countless hours over the past four weeks under very difficult conditions. When they first arrived, there was no commercial power on the island; no hotel accommodations available and limited restaurants were open. Things are progressively returning to normal, and through their efforts, along with the contracted resources and the Cable Bahamas employees, they have restored approximately 75% of Cable Bahamas network on the island. On behalf of Summit Broadband and Cable Bahamas thank you so much for your efforts!
