The BroadBand Access Story
Incorporated in 2000, Ralph Paolo and Jim Lyons co-founded the company currently headquartered in New Hampshire with a regional divisional office in Rhode Island. With over 50 years combined experience in the cable industry, both partners realized a need for reliable cable development. Bringing different skills to the platform, operations and technical expertise, respectively – the company was born with a head count of two employees and two service trucks.
Due to an excellent record of customer service, development and support, BroadBand Access has grown significantly in size while maintaining the same dedication to quality and is continually seeking additional qualified personnel. Find out more about ongoing job opportunities at our career page.
Krista Johnston joined the BroadBand Access Services team in 2007 as the Chief Financial Officer and with her expertise, the company has grown and expanded further. Broadband Access Service operations are now conducted throughout New England – including Rhode Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine and New York. In addition to our corporate headquarters and our regional office in Rhode Island, we’ve expanded our operations to have 2 additional offices: one in South Windsor CT and our most recent office in Springfield MA.
In 2019, Jim Lyons retired and turned the entire operation of the company over to Ralph Paolo. Every President needs a reliable VP and thus, Thomas Doherty was promoted in 2022 from his position as Project Manager to Vice President of BroadBand Access Services. Tom has been with BAS since 2001, during the past 21 years he has held positions in construction and management, proving himself to be committed to the company and its future.
Broadband Access currently has 4 offices throughout New England, more projects than we can count and hundreds of years of experience among the BAS management team.
