No Long-Term Contracts

Traditional ISPs serve long-term subscribers within defined geographic markets. As an independent ISP serving events, we're not bound by long-term contracts, 6-month lead times, or geographic limitations – nor should you be.

We're nimble.

If you need a solution next week in New York, Chicago, LA, or Miami – no problem. If your event takes place on a hillside in the middle of nowhere, no problem. No matter where your event is located, as long as you have electrical power, we've got a solution for you.

We Are A Part Of The Team

Our clients are event organizers, production companies, marketing agencies, and exhibitors. We work directly with you as part of your team to understand your technology needs, goals, event schedule, and floor plan.

We Ask Questions

We ask lots of questions upfront. Our discovery process enables us to provide a network solution that ultimately meets the scope and budget of your event.
