Starry Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: STRY) (the “Company” or “Starry”), a licensed fixed wireless technology developer and internet service provider, today announced it has been named to Fortune’s Change the World list for 2022.
“It's an incredible honor to be named to Fortune’s Change the World list,” said Chet Kanojia, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Starry. “Broadband access is essential, which is why Starry set out to develop technology that would lower the cost of deploying broadband networks and reimagine how consumers connect to the internet. By making high-quality, home internet access more available and more affordable, we’re reinvigorating - through technology innovation and competition - a broadband marketplace that has been largely dominated by near-monopoly incumbent providers. It has not been easy, but making world changing impacts rarely is. We’re honored to be recognized by Fortune for our efforts to advance digital equity and connectivity across the US.”
Since its founding, Starry has been committed to delivering on its mission – offering customers a superior internet service experience that is fast, reliable, uncapped and competitively-priced, while also working to improve digital access and equity in our most under-served communities. Starry has successfully deployed its licensed fixed wireless gigabit network in six U.S. cities including Boston, New York, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Denver, and Columbus, OH – covering more than 5.7 million households. Starry announced that it will launch a seventh city, Las Vegas, this year.
Fortune’s Change the World list recognizes companies that have had a positive social impact through activities that are part of their core business strategy. Honorees are assessed on their impact on one or more specific societal problems, the impact this work has on the company’s business function and how innovative the efforts are.
