Blanco, Texas, February 1, 2008–Tabors Techs is making broadband available to all consumers and small businesses in the Central Texas region - even those who have been left behind by cable and DSL. Working with Hughes, the leading provider of satellite broadband services, Tabors Techs will offer Hill Country residents and businesses the speed and performance of available-anywhere HughesNet® satellite broadband.
“Our mission is to get high-speed Internet access to anyone who wants it,” said Jim Tabor. “After 15 years in the area, it has become clear that the only way to make broadband available to those who need it is to offer satellite. No other solution has the flexibility needed for anytime, anywhere installation. And with more than 30 years of satellite experience, Hughes offers the solution we recommend.”

About Tabors Techs
Tabors Techs is owned and operated by long time Blanco, Texas residents Jim and Sandee Tabor and their sons Rusty and Toby. After many years as an executive in information technology and insurance Jim now owns and manages River Oaks Riverfront RV Ranch outside Blanco in addition to Tabors Techs. Sandee teaches kindergarten in the Blanco Elementary School.

Operating out of their RV park location, Tabors Techs will also sell and install DISH and DirecTV Satellite TV systems.
“Being city folks most of our lives, we didn't realize that many amenities we were accustomed to weren't available in the country.
“Now with HughesNet for High Speed Internet and DISH and DirecTV for our television reception, we not only have equal but in some ways, better and less expensive solutions. For example, Satellite TV has many more high definition channels than cable and with cable prices rising almost 50% over the last 5 years, Satellite TV is almost always less expensive. We actually have one package that is less than $20 per month.”
“Tabors Techs is proud to be able to provide a local authorized dealer for these services. In the past, purchases had to be made by mail, an 800 number, or an internet site that nobody knew who or where they were – and often ended up dealing with folks that felt no accountability to the local community. That is no longer true. We are committed to our motto – making you and your toys smile."
