156 Porter Offers Residents netBlazr as a Choice for Internet Access

East Boston Multi-tenant Building Adds netBlazr

Boston (August 24, 2015) – 156 Porter, a community of loft condominiums in East Boston, recently became the latest addition to the netBlazr network of ultra-premium, Internet service. netBlazr’s Concierge program offers large multi-unit buildings broadband access up to 10 times faster than what’s available from traditional cable and large telecom. 156 Porter is a former bra factory, then a light bulb factory, that was converted into 216 loft condominiums in late 2005. The property offers highly sought-after amenities such as a pet-friendly lifestyle and parking, as well as unique living spaces.

“While there may be new properties being added in Eastie, the team at 156 Porter is focused on providing a steady stream of upgrades and new amenities, such as the option for unbundled Internet access we now have with netBlazr,” said Bernadette Cantalupo, the building’s general manager. “These features add to our residents’ quality of life and their enjoyment of the community.”

Stephen Raymond, the chair of the 156 Porter board of trustees, pointed specifically to the ability to add a highly valued amenity without a sizable investment from its members. “Other services required initial outlays of $25,000 or more,” Raymond said. “With no fiber, no unwieldy satellite dishes on our roof, netBlazr gave us what we wanted at no cost.” Raymond also said that recent outages in the building and customer service hassles from other providers were also a major driving force for inviting netBlazr in. “We are a tech-savvy group and we all rely heavily on our Internet access. We needed a dependable provider.”

netBlazr is the only Boston broadband provider with a 5 star Yelp rating. Concierge delivers speeds above 300 Mbps and is available for less than $60 a month to residents of select apartment and condo buildings. There is no charge for owners of qualifying buildings with 100 or more units to add netBlazr as a choice for their residents.

“East Boston had not been previously well-served by the existing Internet Service Providers and our recent expansion into East Boston has been very well received by residents and businesses,” said Jim Hanley, CEO of netBlazr. “Businesses and select multi-unit buildings are getting access to fiber-optic speeds previously unavailable in the
