Spot On Networks, LLC
New Haven, CT 06510, US
Spot On Networks, LLC (“Spot On” or the “Company”) has implemented a subscriber-based service business of wireless broadband access utilizing high quality and cost-effective technology platforms to provide wireless broadband Internet access to residential users in Multifamily Dwelling Units (“MDUs”), hotel guests and enterprise users in commercial multitenant buildings (“MTUs”) nationwide. The Company is positioned to capitalize on a $35 million investment already made in proprietary wireless security software, network infrastructure and strong business relationships with telecom giants seeking to offload data from overutilized cellular systems, energy management giants seeking to reduce costs of installing “green” energy products and building owners seeking to reduce operating expense and satisfy tenant demands for mobile services and energy efficiency. In substantially all of the properties in which the Company installs its secure, high quality networks, it has obtained the exclusive right to manage and coordinate the Wi-Fi services offered by the building to its tenants through long term contracts and has recently filed for a patent on the design of indoor Wi-Fi networks.
