Plantation, FL - Aug. 1, 2005 Â Travelers and truck drivers making their way through Louisiana now will be better connected due to a new agreement between Transnet Wireless, Jubilee Food Stores and a distributor that will bring wireless internet access to four Jubilee locations throughout Louisiana, with the possibility of expanding the service to additional stores.
The four Louisiana travel centers Â in Galliano, Schriever, Houma, and Slidell Â have been outfitted with kiosks from Transnet Wireless, the country's top provider of wireless Internet kiosks.
The Jubilee installation is only the latest of many agreements between Transnet and the growing number of businesses and organizations striving to keep up with the skyrocketing demand for wireless Internet access in public areas.
ÂWireless access is not an option anymore, it is a necessity, especially when it comes to travel,Â said Brad Cartwright, president of Transnet Wireless. ÂThe new venture with Jubilee will put them among the premier travel centers, and will set a higher standard for the types of services consumers are demanding.Â
Transnet Wireless is establishing a national network of Wi-Fi Hot Spots through an innovative private local distributorship program in which the Hot Spot equipment is placed in locations at no cost to the location owner. The hardware, maintenance and monthly Internet connection fees are all paid for by the local distributor, who profits from usage fees. A percentage of the revenues are also shared with the location.
Roger Stathes, retail general manager for Jubilee, said the kiosks will allow Jubilee to provide local residents, travelers and truck drivers another service to make their lives and travel more convenient.
ÂInternet access is part of people's daily lives in this day and age,Â he said, pointing out that business travelers will be able to stay constantly informed while on the road, and truck drivers can use the Internet to check locations and directions. Stathes said that Transnet was the best choice for his company, citing Transnet's Âsuperior serviceÂ and ability to handle high-volume accounts.
Jubilee Food Stores has 44 locations throughout Mississippi and Louisiana, and is owned by Hill City Oil Co., Inc., a Mississippi- and Louisiana-based company that is also a supplier of oil and other petroleum products.
Transnet Wireless Corporation is the national leader in the distribution of Wi-Fi Hot Spot Internet kiosks. Transnet is a member of the Airpath Provider Alliance, the global standard for comprehensive Wi-Fi roaming, with 600 providers operating more than 3,500 hotspots and counting in more than 23 countries. Transnet Wireless is a privately held corporation headquartered in Plantation, FL.
