Atlantech Lights Crystal City with Fiber
Tenants Now Have Access to High-Speed Internet and Toll Quality Phone Service at a Fraction of the Cost
Silver Spring, MD December 17, 2008
— Atlantech Online announced today that they have installed fiber into the commercial office buildings of Crystal City, adding 17 buildings to its portfolio of "lit" buildings in the Washington DC metropolitan area. This enables Atlantech to offer in Crystal City its Building Wide Internet Service (BWIS) which is already available in 16 other Class A office properties in Bethesda, Silver Spring, and Rockville. With this announcement, the commercial office tenants of Crystal City can take advantage of high-speed Internet access at attractive price points compared to currently available telecommunication circuits. For instance, tenants can get a 10 Mbps Internet connection for as low as $350 per month. This is a great savings, compared to regular T-1 service which is capable of only 1.5 Mbps of throughput and normally costs about $500 per month. In addition, tenants will be able to enjoy flat rate business phone service delivered via Atlantech’s fiber network.
"We looked at expanding this valuable service outside Montgomery County and found Crystal City to be an excellent choice for our service expansion," stated Ed Fineran, President of Atlantech Online. "In real estate, location is everything. Just as having an address at a Metro station increases value, being located on a fiber artery gives buildings a huge competitive advantage and provides tremendous value to tenants," continued Fineran.
Atlantech Online has delivered service in Crystal City to several tenants and has additional signed orders in the process of being delivered. Tenants in Crystal City can place orders today to start saving money and eliminate the bottlenecks with their current Internet and telephone access services. Nicholas Stello, Vice President of IT at Vornado Realty Trust stated that "we’ve needed to upgrade our bandwidth in the office but had not found a cost effective solution that would give us the network capacity we need. With Atlantech Online’s fiber network, we can get more bandwidth than we need at a great savings."
Thomas Jaycox, Director of Information Technology for Onsite3, had been waiting for over a year for another carrier to provide a gigabit Ethernet connection to Onsite3’s data center in Ashburn, Virginia and was excited to learn that Atlantech had delivered fiber to his building in Crystal City. "I placed an order with Atlantech Online for a dedicated gigabit Ethernet connection to Ashburn, VA and within five business days Atlantech delivered the complete circuit. Atlantech’s staff is courteous and professional and I have been very pleased with the quality of the service and their customer support."
