Southfield-based phone and Internet provider, 123Net, has added a new fixed wireless tower on 23 Mile Rd. between Romeo Plank and Hayes in Shelby Township. The new installment will provide greater capability and bandwidth to area businesses that rely on 123Net for their connectivity.
The wireless service will have speeds of up to two gigabits per second, allowing for faster downloads and improved data speeds and voice coverage, says Jim Hart, 123Net’s director of wireless.
“This level of sophisticated technology is exactly the type of infrastructure that Shelby Township and Macomb County businesses need to grow and thrive,” he says.
The company has 56 fixed wireless towers across the state, offering services such as colocation, fiber, and data services to several Michigan businesses.
“123Net continues to invest in a new infrastructure to support the explosive demand for high-speed fixed wireless data services,” Hart says. “As a Michigan-based provider, this new point-of-presence is a significant milestone in our service in Macomb County, Metro Detroit, and across southeast Michigan.”
123Net has been providing voice, data, and colocation infrastructure services to enterprises, carriers, ISPs, and technology companies for more than 20 years. Four metro fiber rings and long-haul fiber networks span over 3,000 route miles and covers 70 nodes across Michigan.
