Exeter High grad behind startup offering affordable high speed internet

HAMPTON – An Exeter High School alumnus and his business partner have formed a startup company that offers high-speed Internet at a much lower cost.

People living in Hampton Beach might pay between $40 and $85 a month for internet Radio wave networksrun by East Kingston native Al Datillo and his friend Trent Linville.

The two, ages 22 and 21, met in college at the Florida Institute of Technology when Linville was just launching Airwave. Now, I’m on a mission to help customers get off their cable and internet packages that can run people well over $100 a month.

Trent Linville and Alexander Datillo launched Airwave Networks in Hampton Beach, offering Internet on the beach for $40 a month.

“Sea Coast residents and businesses have long been waiting for someone new to the market that offers the speeds they pay for, all at a reasonable cost,” Datillo said.

How does it work?

Air wave uses radio frequencies to provide fast and low-cost Internet service. At this point, they said they are only able to offer their service hyperlocally. Service currently extends from near the Hampton Beach Police Station on Brown Avenue to north of Boar’s Head.
