Today, BendBroadband is proud to unveil Cutting Edge Internet, a multifaceted promotional campaign that focuses on the speed and power of our Ultra 50, Ultra 100 and Ultra 300 Internet packages, as well as the company’s deep roots in Central Oregon.

In the coming weeks and months, you’ll see billboards, emails, digital ads, print ads and other tactics around the region that reflect Cutting Edge Internet’s message and visual aesthetic. The centerpiece of the campaign is a 30-second television commercial featuring world-renowned artist J. Chester “Skip” Armstrong, a master wood carver who produces incredible, hand-crafted sculptures on his property near Sisters. Watch the commercial on our YouTube channel or right here:

Cutting Edge Internet is the latest in a series of BendBroadband campaigns that revolve around local people who excel at their craft thanks to an uncommon combination of ambition, dedication and hard work. After featuring a Central Oregon musician, barrel racer and runner, our in-house creative team sought inspiration from Sisters’ thriving arts scene and found it in Skip Armstrong, whose stunning work has been featured on TV before.

Skip’s experience as an artist, and his innate understanding of the planning and precision needed to develop one of his sculptures, is a fitting analogue for BendBroadband’s never-ending effort to provide the region’s finest Internet service.

That Internet service, by the way, is faster than ever before, with speeds up to 300Mbps, and no data limits when you bundle with a qualifying TV package. BendBroadband’s Internet packages come with:

  • Locally based, 24/7 tech support
  • Free installation
  • A two-year price lock
  • No contract required

If you’re keeping track, that’s blazing fast Internet with unlimited data, exceptional support, no long-term commitment and peace of mind when the bill arrives. We call it Cutting Edge Internet, and you can place your order today.
