EOT, a facilities-based telephone and high-speed Internet services provider, primarily to underserved communities in Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn, is pioneering the use of fixed wireless in the mmwave bands to deliver affordable gigabit connections across NY City and surrounding areas. By using the latest MetroLinq products from IgniteNet in the unlicensed 60GHz band, EOT is able to deploy its gigabit service faster and more affordably than pure fiber networks without sacrificing performance.
"We are thrilled to be rolling out cost-effective Gigabit connections in the underserved areas of New York City," says Ted Flomenhaft of EOT. “Development is stymied for a surprisingly large proportion of NY City residents and businesses because of inadequate affordable broadband options; EOT is bridging this digital divide.”
"EOT’s deployment is a perfect example of what we are working to accomplish with the MetroLinq platform which is bringing affordable broadband to all communities," says Hal Bledsoe of IgniteNet. “Many communities are skipped over by incumbent carriers; intrepid innovators like Ignitenet and operators like EOT are working hard to fix this.”
