  • Internet backbone services are extremely competitive, but access from most other locations is not. About 3% of commercial buildings in the US have competitive fiber connections. Over the next decade, that number could rise above 4%, but >95% of buildings will remain stuck with non-competitive monopoly or duopoly access:• Telco (Verizon, ATT, …)• Cableco (Comcast, TimeWarner, Cablevision, …)The result is a raw deal for US businesses: High prices and low reliability!For many workers, access at home far outperforms access at work. Telco “service level agreements” are widely referred to (by IT directors) as “bogus SLAs.”

  • netBlazr’s uses online and offline community building techniques together with our freemium business model to drive down the cost of customer acquisition.Here’s an example of a hyper-local recruiting effort in the 6-8 block region around the Fort Point Channel in Boston. This campaign seeks 60 interested parties so we can justify bringing service to the neighborhood.This list of interested parties means netBlazr can sequence installation around a new local head end so as to reach positive cash flow in a matter of weeks.We’re still learning, but it appears we can do hyper-local recruiting at very low cost.
