Enhancing Broadband & Phone Service

VTX1 was in need of a system to support communication antennas in a rural area.


The need

VTX1, a leading broadband and phone provider in Texas for more than 65 years, purchased ARE Telecom’s patented ballast foundation and 54 m  monopole for installation to support antennas.


ARE’s AFS ballasted foundation was assembled and filled with local gravel to provide a permanent foundation for VTX1. Currently used at only 59% capacity, the AFS system allows VTX1 the option to add additional antennas or microwave dishes in the future. The AFS 3000 can also be disassembled within days and relocated to a new site if needed.

Project Benchmarks

  • Custom designed monopole to meet customers current and future needs

  • Waldrop Construction brought on as an ARE Telecom certified installer

Project Resources

  • Telehandler

  • Crane

  • Air Compressor


  • Above ground ballasted foundation to avoid use of concrete

  • Antenna to be installed at 180’

  • New installation crew with no experience using ARE foundations
