Atlantech Online, Inc. Lights 3 Bethesda Metro Center with Fiber
Silver Spring, MD April 3, 2007 - Atlantech Online announced today that they have installed fiber into 3 Bethesda Metro Center, adding another Class A office building to its portfolio of "lit" buildings in Montgomery County. The service, called Building Wide Internet Service or BWIS, is already available in 16 other Class A office properties in Bethesda, Silver Spring, and Rockville. With this announcement, the tenants of 3 Bethesda Metro Center can take advantage of high-speed Internet access at attractive price points when compared to currently available telecommunication circuits. For instance, tenants can get 10 Mbps connections for as low as $350 per month whereas regular T-1 service, capable of 1.5 Mbps of throughput, normally costs approximately $500 per month. Additionally, tenants will be able to enjoy flat rate business phone service delivered via Atlantech’s fiber network.
"We looked at offering this valuable service to office buildings in downtown Bethesda and found 3 Bethesda Metro Center to be an excellent property," 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 a building a huge competitive advantage and provides tremendous value to tenants," continued Fineran.
Atlantech Online has already signed up three tenants for service and invites all remaining tenants of the building to start saving money and eliminating bottlenecks with their current Internet and telephone access offerings. "We’ve needed to upgrade our bandwidth in the office but found it to be too costly. With Atlantech Online’s fiber network, we can get more bandwidth than we need and actually pay less money than we currently pay," claimed David Anderson, Chief Operating Officer for law firm Lerch, Early & Brewer.
