MetroCast Expands WiFi Coverage in Downtown Bristol, NH07.11.16
With demand growing for internet access in downtown Bristol, New Hampshire, MetroCast Communications has launched new WiFi hotspots that cover the heart of business and community space in the town, including offices, shops and the fields and playgrounds at Kelley Park.
MetroCast Regional Manager Ed Merrill met last month with Bristol Town Administrator Nik Coates and Bill Dowey, Chairman of the newly formed Bristol Economic Development Council, to review their goals for Downtown Bristol. MetroCast WiFi hotspots were identified as a way to keep customers connected in the heart of downtown, while drawing in a committed audience for the merchants in this growing business district.
The hotspots will provide free wireless access to MetroCast Business customers and residential customers that subscribe to High Speed Turbo and High Speed Ultra internet services.
“This advanced technology enables customers to get online when cellular coverage is not available or when they want to save on their data plans,” said Merrill. “This is an added benefit for our Internet customers, as it allows them to use their MetroCast Internet service when outside the home.”
MetroCast, which provides video, internet and phone services to residential and business customers in five states, expects to have more than 80 hotspots activated in its New Hampshire-Maine service areas by year-end.
MetroCast customers may access these WiFi hotspots on their smartphones, tablets, laptops and other devices with wireless capabilities. For more information about MetroCast WiFi hotspot locations, go to MetroCast.com/hotspots.
MetroCast Communications serves over 150,000 residential and business-class customers in New Hampshire, Maine, Maryland, Virginia, and Pennsylvania with video, High Speed Internet and Digital Phone services. MetroCast can be reached toll-free at 800.952.1001 or online at MetroCast.com.
