Getwireless.net, Central Pennsylvania’s leading provider of wireless broadband Internet access, is pleased to announce that it has been selected to deliver high-speed Internet access to several well-known Centre Region organizations:  the Nittany Lion Inn, The Penn Stater Hotel & Conference Center, five Geisinger Health System locations, and five locations of The Skills Group of Central PA, Inc.

Penn State Hospitality Services selected Getwireless.net to deliver bandwidth to its State College-area hotels for use by their guests.  The 2 Mbps bandwidth delivered to each hotel enables guests to access the Internet at speeds faster than a T1 line and at a much lower cost to the hotels. 

According to Robert Murcek of Geisinger Health Systems, “Geisinger selected Getwireless.net because of the company's ability to deliver high-speed access reliably, cost-effectively, and independent of wireline facilities.” Getwireless.net now provides Wide-Area Network ("WAN") connectivity at up to 10 Mbps to five Geisinger locations, including two in State College and one each in Lewistown, Bellefonte, and Mifflin. “Fast, secure, reliable communication among the various Geisinger facilities, some of which operate in relatively remote locations, is critical to our ability to provide state-of-the-art patient care,” Murcek said.  Getwireless.net's fixed-point wireless service enabled Geisinger to establish a high-speed WAN fabric with the required high level of reliability more quickly and at a much lower cost than other options.  

The Skills Group of Central PA began using Getwireless.net's Internet service in State College in 2001, and their high level of satisfaction led to the decision to implement Getwireless.net at four additional sites, including a second State College location, two Skills offices in Altoona, and one in Lewistown.  In addition to delivering reliable Internet access, the Getwireless.net service enables the multiple Skills locations to communicate with each other more efficiently through the high-speed Getwireless.net network.

"Being selected to serve these well-known, respected organizations is an honor for all of us at Getwireless.net and a testament to the quality, reliability, and value of the service we provide," stated Daniel Myers, President & CEO of Getwireless.net, Inc.  "Having a reliable, high-speed Internet connection is critical to the daily operations of each of these organizations," Myers continued.  "And by selecting Getwireless.net as their Internet service vendor following thorough evaluation processes, they are confirming that our service is the best, most cost-effective broadband Internet solution on the market for businesses and organizations of all types and sizes."

Getwireless.net offers high-speed broadband Internet access through fixed-point wireless connections that deliver speeds greater than that available by traditional T1, DSL or cable connections, but at a fraction of the cost.  For businesses that depend heavily on the Internet, VoIP and VPN connections for daily operations, Getwireless.net provides a very stable and dependable connection, either as a primary service or as secondary backup connection to existing T1, T3, DSL or cable modem service.  In addition, the company also provides traditional landline-based broadband services, such as T1 lines, managed website hosting, server co-location, DSL, and nationwide dial-up Internet access.  Getwireless.net currently provides high-speed Internet service throughout Centre, Blair, Mifflin, Bedford, Huntingdon, and Juniata Counties.
