Winston Salem, NC (PRWEB) October 16, 2006
Winston-Salem, NC (PRWEB) October 16, 2006 -- SolidSpace, a long-time provider of Web hosting, network, and broadband services in the Triad, announced today the launch of SolidWaves, a new wireless broadband service. SolidWaves will offer Winston-Salem businesses faster Internet speeds with increased security at an affordable price.
The service is immediately available for businesses in downtown Winston-Salem and will expand to reach under-serviced areas such as Clemmons, King and Kernersville in 2007. By the end of next year, SolidSpace plans to expand SolidWaves to five other markets on the East coast.
SolidWaves is an alternative to wired broadband services provided by local phone and cable companies and offers greater speeds, reliability and enhanced security. Other business-class Internet services such as DSL can only reach speeds of 1.5Mb downstream and 256Kb upstream. Meanwhile, SolidWaves can exceed speeds of up to 6Mb downstream and upstream, matching more robust internet connections.
Rates for SolidWaves the new wireless Internet service will be competitive to current business-class Internet services and offers flexible pricing plans that can be easily increased on the fly. If you need to increase your bandwidth, it is as simple as a phone call. Comparatively, wired services may require time-consuming processes to improve line conditions. All business plan levels include email accounts, web hosting, and two static IP addresses - services that add up to hundreds of dollars of additional fees with traditional broadband plans.
Unlike DSL and cable, SolidWaves customer’s traffic is completely secure during transmission by using 128 bit encryption, the same level of security standard required by banks and other financial institutions.
“SolidSpace has always provided solid solutions to our customers and we are excited to offer wireless broadband,”said Jim Capps, president of SolidSpace. “Our customers have been asking for this as they have outgrown the limitations of traditional broadband services such as cable and DSL. SolidSpace has more than 10 years in the broadband business and we feel that with our superior customer service and reliable platform of products, this new offering is a nice fit with our other line of business-class services.”
In the near future, SolidWaves will be expanding the wireless broadband service to visitors of downtown Winston-Salem so that anyone on laptop with wireless Internet access will be able to use SolidWaves.
