Gigabit Wireless From Detroit Renaissance Center
Southfield, MI April 1, 2011 – 123NET, a Southfield based provider of wholesale internet and telecommunications services announced today that it had officially expanded it’s business only 4G wireless network to Downtown Detroit, broadcasting from two of Detroit’s most well known landmarks.
“Our wireless network is a great alternative to traditional, terrestrial offerings from the phone and cable companies“ said 123Net President Dan Irvin. “The 123Net wireless technology now deployed is capable of delivering 1.5 to 1000 megabit (1 gigabit) per second of dedicated bandwidth, enough to compete with direct fiber services from companies like AT&T or Verizon.”
Dominic Serra has been proactive and the go-to-guy for the 123Net wireless operations division. “Since our soft launch last fall, Detroit (proper) is our biggest market already” added Serra.
“We quickly discovered that businesses here were not being given all of the same options as their suburban counterparts, the lack of competition and investment was clearly apparent in the pricing and service levels for basic connections”
“123Net owns over 1000 land miles of fiber” added Serra. “We know from our own experiences, how costly and time consuming it can be to provide these services with traditional methods, the network we built was designed from the ground up to greatly reduce install times and expense” Serra said.
“By and large, 123Net wireless broadcast technology offers a higher speed, lower cost product with an identical service guarantee as our traditional offerings” Irvin said.
Since deployment in the fall, the company has reportedly received orders from several of Detroit’s largest and most well known business organizations.
“You might see us in a few interesting places” said Irvin.
