DETROIT, June 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of its continuing network investment in its wireless technology, 123.Net has added a new wireless Point-of-Presence (PoP) site atop the historic Maccabees Building at 5057 Woodward Ave in Midtown Detroit. The building is currently owned and operated by Wayne State University.
This is 123.Net's fifth PoP location in Detroit enabling 123.Net to deliver up to 2Gbps speeds to any location in the Downtown, Midtown and New Center Areas. This wireless footprint further establishes 123.Net as the clear market leader with an unrivaled ability to meet the growing technical demands of an increasingly vibrant Detroit business community.
Jim Hart, Director of Wireless Operations, at 123.Net commented, "Data speed and security has become a critical concern for global businesses. 123.Net's Detroit customers benefit from our best-in-class wireless offering and are able to turn that concern into their competitive advantage.
"As a Michigan-based and Michigan-only provider, we are thrilled to be part of Detroit's economic comeback. By delivering limitless bandwidth and agile, rapidly deployable services, we are committed to offering local companies the resources necessary to create and sustain a world-class business climate."
123.Net's carrier-grade high-speed fixed wireless service offers speeds up to 2Gbps (up to 10Gbps with fiber connection) for both uploads and downloads on secure links. 123.Net's fixed wireless installation time is among the quickest in the industry, with some circuits taking less than a half day to complete.
The Albert Kahn-designed art deco and Romanesque Maccabees Building is on the national registry of historic places and has a history of housing sophisticated technology. In the 1950's, the building was home to the nationally broadcast and wildly popular radio programs "The Lone Ranger" and "Green Hornet."
"For us, it's an honor to partner with the Maccabees Building and become its latest generation of technology leaders," said Hart. "We're equally excited to work with Wayne State University and be able to offer our services to its related facilities and businesses."
123.Net built and owns its entire wireless network and now has 55 towers located strategically throughout Michigan and expects another to bring new wireless sites on-line in the next 12 months. 123.Net supports its wireless network with 3,000 route miles of proprietary fiber.
