AirSwitch Starts Construction to Bring Neighborhood Area Network To American Fork
OREM, Utah, Dec. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- AirSwitch(SM) Corporation started construction to bring its high-speed Internet service to the city of American Fork this week. AirSwitch provides residents and businesses high-speed, bi-directional Internet access at affordable prices.
"This technology will revolutionize the way consumers access the Internet," said Rondo Fehlberg, executive vice president of AirSwitch. "It also eliminates the need for modems or a second phone line."
With AirSwitch, residential customers can be connected 24 hours a day for a basic service rate of $19.95 per month. The AirSwitch Neighborhood Area Network(SM) does not use existing telephone or cable television lines. Instead, AirSwitch uses proprietary, patent-pending technology to create a new Internet delivery system that is installed along existing public utility easements. AirSwitch provides Internet access speeds up to 500 times faster than conventional dial-up and eliminates the need for a modem or second phone line.
"We are excited to offer the residents of our city a way to access the Internet at high-speeds without the high costs associated with other methods," said Ted Barratt, mayor of American Fork. "I am very impressed with AirSwitch's management and their cutting-edge technology. We feel confident that AirSwitch will make a big difference for the residents of American Fork."
American Fork is the second municipality in the United States to have the AirSwitch Neighborhood Area Network installed throughout the entire city.
Founded in 1998, AirSwitch Corporation is a public utility. They developed patent-pending proprietary technology to provide high-speed Internet connections at affordable rates to entire cities. At the same time, these connections also solve the 'last mile' problem: how to provide affordable, high-speed data connections to homes and small businesses.
