MIDDLETOWN, R.I., March 31, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Towerstream (Nasdaq:TWER), a Fixed Wireless Fiber Alternative provider, announced the addition of five buildings to its On-Net Fixed Wireless Service offering. Businesses located in these buildings now have access to 100 Mbps of dedicated, symmetrical Internet connectivity, backed by an industry leading SLA (service level agreement), for $699 per month.
"We are excited to continue growing our portfolio of On-Net buildings in response to strong demand from building owners, property managers, and businesses," stated Jeffrey Thompson, CEO. "Fixed wireless connectivity has proven to be faster than fiber, more reliable, and quicker to install. We plan to continue adding On-Net locations throughout 2015."
"Internet connectivity options are viewed by current and prospective tenants as a key feature of the services that our buildings provide," stated Michele Campbell, building manager of Deco Tower Associates. "Offering best-of-class services is critical to keeping our buildings at high occupancy levels and we are pleased to be working with a top tier wireless provider like Towerstream."
On-Net buildings leverage Towerstream's fixed wireless network built high above each city. The dense, mesh architecture is highly redundant and reliable with short distance connections to Towerstream's fiber backbone in each city. Building owners and property managers recognize the importance that current and prospective tenants place on the quality of internet service provided at their business location. As a result, they are providing access to their network services room where Towerstream installs the equipment required to provide every business at that location with 100 Mbps at a market-leading price of $699 per month.
Businesses utilize the Internet to improve operating efficiencies. As businesses continue to drive processes and systems to the cloud, their needs for bandwidth capacity are rising exponentially. Towerstream's 100 Mbps offering is designed to fully address the needs of every business at a price only marginally higher than historically charged by traditional providers for a T-1 connection which is only 1.5 Mbps.
