About Us

On March 8th of 2002, Todd Heinz purchased Gallup McKinley Mega Central, Inc., a high-capacity broadband Internet Service Provider (ISP). In January of 2004, after purchasing the assets of Community Internet Access, a local small ISP, Todd officially changed the name of the organization to Southwest Communication Systems, Inc. The mission was to serve the rural areas of New Mexico and Arizona with internet access.

Over the few years that followed, SCS began to specialize in the provision of internet to large school systems, and brought on high level staff to help with engineering and expertise. Due to the complexities of the communication needs in large school districts, SCS became an E-Rate Provider through the Schools and Libraries Division of the Universal Services Administrative Company. This allows them to apply for rural school, library and health care facility subsidies for the needs of the community. Over the past fourteen years they have received in excess of $5 million through that program to help improve the internet access at rural schools in New Mexico and Arizona.

In 2008, Southwest Communication Systems (dba SCSConnect) combined all of their available products to become one of the leading providers of internet products and services in the entire Four Corners Region. With their engineering expertise in wireless, fiber and ethernet, they can engineer almost any communication solution you need. SCS Connect brings together the technology, expertise and desire to work in small community situations, in order to provide the reliable internet and network connectivity that your organization and community may require.

Description of Capabilities

We specialize in providing a broad spectrum of capabilities designed specifically to serve the communication needs of rural communities. We bring the kind of advanced technology and support often available only in larger metropolitan cities to schools, public safety organizations, and business enterprises in the sparsely populated regions through microwave radio products.

The SCSConnect team has years of experience in working with communities and school districts to find project funding assistance, accessing federal, state, and private sources.

To start a project off on the right foot, we provide system-wide functionality assessments in order to clearly identify local needs and system requirements.
