A to Z Technology - Fast, affordable and reliable Internet

Tim Powell 173 Views https://atoztech.co/5x5-internet

In rural Newaygo County, Michigan, Internet access is in high demand, but sadly unavailable. The service providers that do offer Internet are slow, expensive, and upon many issues, lack competitors to keep prices and services competitive. My company, A to Z Technology, Inc, aims to fix this by providing County-wide fiber Optic Internet. To stay competitive, we also offer Phone, TV, and a security package in “bundle” packages. While $5,000 won’t fund our entire project, start to finish, it will be enough to get Internet access to those that need it, and create a substantial opportunity for continued growth. Our plan right now is to make Fiber Optic Internet available throughout our home city, Fremont, MI, and eventually, Newaygo, MI, White Cloud, MI and Grant, MI. Once our infrastructure is built, we will continue to grow it to cover the urban Townships in the surrounding area.

Impact

This should come as a surprise to no one, but modern life has evolved around internet access to the point that it is no longer a luxury, but an essential. In fact, for things like public health, public safety, and economic prosperity, we are better off individually and collectively when everyone has access to these technologies. If there was any remaining doubt as to how essential internet access is, then the current coronavirus pandemic should have eliminated it. Our area needs this!
