Company to add Employees Locally and Leverage New High Speed Internet Network in Camden to Develop a Free Downtown WiFi Network & Visitor Portal
September 24, 2015 – Camden, Maine. Redzone Wireless, LLC, a Maine-based wireless Internet service provider (WISP), announces plans to increase its workforce at its Camden corporate office and operations center, and announces strategic partnership with VStv to implement a next generation free WiFi network & visitor portal throughout the downtown business area and public spaces.
Redzone has increased its 2015 hiring projections by 25% based on the accelerated expansion of its 4G LTE Advanced broadband network and increased subscriber demand for service. The Camden Downtown WiFi network and visitor portal, privately funded by Redzone and VStv, is scheduled to be operational before the end of the year.
“Redzone is rapidly connecting communities and regions throughout the State of Maine to our 4G LTE Advanced broadband network. A benefit of this growth is the opportunity to drive local economic development through direct job creation, and by delivering innovative technology that enhances the overall business community and visitor experience,” said Jim McKenna, Redzone Wireless, LLC President. “We are excited to be partnering with VStv to make Camden a positive example for other communities that share the view that accessible high speed Internet is critical for building a local economy,” explained McKenna.
“Free high-speed WiFi is a great way to welcome visitors to downtown Camden,” adds Reade Brower, owner of VStv as well as Courier Publications, The Free Press and TravelMAINE. “Whether they arrive here by car, bus or by boat, they’ll be able to instantly learn about things going on around town, where to shop, eat, stay, or even jump on a boat. This is customer service at a whole new level.”
The company has scheduled a press conference in Camden at 2:30pm on September 24th. Redzone management will be joined by a number of distinguished guests, partners, and dignitaries to mark its WiFi network launch and local development plans with a formal announcement presentation.
