Fiber-Based Internet Provider Will Leverage Markley Group’s Carrier Hotel Connections to Increase Network Quality
Wicked Bandwidth Inc. (WBI), an exciting new fiber-based Internet Service Provider, announced the expansion of its network today with a new Point of Presence (POP) in Boston at Markley Group’s One Summer Street location. Markley Group is universally recognized as a world class data center operator and its One Summer Street location is New England’s largest and longest operating multi-tenant telecommunications and data center facility. WBI recently launched its fiber based Internet services in Boston as an alternative to the “big box” carriers that are often unable to address the needs of small to mid-sized businesses requiring secure bandwidth.
This expansion will enable WBI to further scale its offering to clients in this competitive market as well as to ensure its services are protected and available to customers at all times. By choosing to work with Markley Group, WBI will be able to take advantage of its 920,000 square foot carrier hotel, which offers uninterrupted access to independent network providers and eight utility feeds from multiple substations.
“By leveraging Markley Group’s diverse connectivity, Wicked Bandwidth is further positioning itself against the big box carriers by providing its clients with the best in reliable, fast and secure connectivity,” said Patrick Gilmore, CTO of Markley Group. “We are dedicated to working with companies that aim to innovate and better the community – and are proud that WBI chose our facility to continuously improve upon its services.”
Markley Group’s carrier-neutral facility enables access to more than 80+ independent network providers and eight utility feeds from multiple substations for uninterrupted, reliable power and service. Providers such as Wicked Bandwidth are able to then provide fast, secure and reliable connectivity, lowering the costs and management resources of IP transit and Internet traffic.
“We are excited to open our new data center at the Markley Group’s secure facility, as it allows us to inter-connect to the largest upstream IP providers,” said Michael Murphy, Founder/President at Wicked Bandwidth. “We chose Markley Group because of its stable infrastructure, ample power and multiple levels of redundancy.”
WBI strategically targets bandwidth starved multi-tenant buildings throughout the Boston Metro area, allowing them to leverage economies of scale within the buildings. It offers fiber based Internet at speeds ranging from 10 Megabits per second to 1 Gigabit per second in select Boston buildings at highly competitive rates. Its customers have the ability to quickly scale at-will with flexible terms.
