Satellite providers aren’t any better, with high latency and unreliable connectivity and poor customer service from a national location.
That’s where AME comes in.
AME uses many proven techniques gained from years in the wireless telecommunications industry. We implement these techniques with our MOST™ process model and a methodical approach to training and evaluation. We structure our deals to mitigate risks for the company and investors in operations and capital structure.
We apply this model to our acquisitions of wireless internet service providers. MOST™ shows us where we can make improvements to companies we are seeking to acquire, as well as the level of risk involved, and how much growth potential exists.
We also make use of proprietary radio-frequency channel-switching algorithms, precision and proprietary business analytics unavailable to the greater market, and big data techniques that have been refined and proven through the successful exit of previous companies.
In short, AME leverages technology and best practices to bring underperforming companies to scale, and then infuse our core values.
In order to provide higher quality internet at faster speeds to underserved markets, AME relies on a set of core values.
We believe in treating our customers, employees, and stakeholders with the utmost respect, thereby creating a delightful experience during any interaction with the company.
We value improvement and introspection in everything that we do from personal leadership to business process.
Honesty & Integrity
We view honesty and integrity as a fundamental way of life.
We strive to achieve the perfect balance between humility and ambition — treating people with respect while always striving for more.
As consummate professionals, we live for accountability and responsibility.
AME has identified our next acquisition target: a company with over 850 subscribers, equal to roughly 30% market penetration in the Grants and Milan, New Mexico market. Their primary focus has been directed elsewhere resulting in slow growth. Once the acquisition is complete, we will refocus the company on their residential telecom service and shift immediately into a proven and organic growth model.
We’ve already lined up four private investors for this current endeavor, and have formed partnerships with VarCentric, Cambium, and Winncomm for distribution.
Compared to fiber networks, AME can deploy in 1/5th the time, and at 1/10th the cost.

The AME team coalesced over a 24-month period during the TCU Executive MBA program around similar values, visions, and life goals. The team is comprised of value-centered, people-oriented entrepreneurs focused on value creation for customers, employees, investors, partners, and businesses.
Since graduating from the MBA program, the team performed due diligence on over 60 companies, solidified the financial and operating models, and hit a number of key milestones along the way. The speed with which they have executed all of this is due to a unique trust they have each placed in each other, and a sense of dedication to their employees, customers, and investors.
