TengoInternet Lands Major Wi-Fi Contract
TengoInternet, the oldest and largest wireless Internet provider for the outdoor hospitality industry, today (Oct. 9) announced that Killam Properties Inc. selected TengoInternet to provide wireless networks at their Leisure Living communities.
The first community trial network at Holiday Harbour was deployed in September, according to a news release.
In addition to professional network design and installation, TengoInternet will provide Killam Properties with a branded guest authentication and online network management system, bandwidth management, complete staff training, marketing support, liability management and 24/7 guest support including a VIP line for resort staff.
With more than 1,000 wireless networks installed across 48 states, Canada and Mexico, TengoInternet remains the industry's largest provider with the experience necessary to install and manage commercial grade wireless networks for RV resorts.
"We are very pleased to be partnering with TengoInternet," said Peter Majewsky, director of seasonal resorts for Killam Properties Inc. "We selected Tengo through a rigorous and lengthy selection process – they were professional, well established and responded quickly and honestly to our queries about service capabilities, costs and expectations of service quality for our guests. Everyone said 'sure we can do that' but we also wanted to be aware of potential problems in advance; in other words, 'under promise and over deliver' to us, and that is what Tengo has done."
"Killam is investing in a great guest experience" said Eric Stumberg, CEO and co-founder, TengoInternet. "Our industry leadership, strong service portfolio and dedicated staff are dedicated to successfully meet Killam's specific network, guest and business requirements. We look forward to helping Killam to grow its business and better serve their guests while growing our presence in Canada."
