Business Only Broadband (BOB) Providing Internet Connectivity to Shoreline Sightseeing in Downtown Chicago

WESTMONT, IL--(Marketwire - Mar 14, 2013) -  Business Only Broadband (BOB) is excited to count Shoreline Sightseeing among its valued Chicago customers and BOB hopes to enjoy a long-term business partnership with this iconic Chicago company.

"BOB is pleased to partner with Shoreline Sightseeing and provide the company with Internet access in an area that has limited options. This is a growing issue with businesses as they try to keep up with big bandwidth demands. This specific location is downtown near Lake Michigan and our solution has provided the connectivity needed to run the business smoothly," said Vice President of Sales Jon Procunier, Business Only Broadband.

Ken Wagner, IT Manager at Shoreline Sightseeing: "Shoreline hosts various applications on the Internet that support our ticketing operations for tours, cruises, and events. BOB was brought in to help support this due to the poor current communication infrastructure at our location consisting of old copper twisted tier and nothing but T1s providing unreliable service. By providing a much needed increase in bandwidth to our remote kiosks, we now run a much more efficient network and service our customers more efficiently. BOB's solution was installed quickly and gives us flexibility to increase bandwidth on short notice. We've experienced rock solid service from BOB since installation was completed and thanks to BOB, we are now able to access the Internet with the speeds our boat-touring and sightseeing business needs, and service our customers in the most efficient possible manner."
