netBlazr Raises $675,000 to Speed Expansion of Boston Broadband Network

Boston—April 10, 2015—netBlazr, the fastest, most affordable Internet access for home and business in Boston, today announced that it has secured $675,000 in a funding round from a group of local individual angel investors.

“With a market ever more knowledgeable and accepting of cable unbundling, the time was right for a strategic raise to support increased sales and marketing,” said Jim Hanley, netBlazr’s co-founder and CEO. “In addition, we’re making significant investments in new fiber-speed services and expanding our network coverage to more Boston area neighborhoods.”

David Abrams, a private investor who also participated in netBlazr’s first round of funding, was attracted not only to the strength of the team but by the promise of better, faster broadband for his own Beacon Hill home. “The netBlazr team is on a mission to provide Boston-area residents with better and faster access to the Internet. But the true differentiator is really the level of service they provide, unparalleled in my experiences with Comcast and Verizon.”

netBlazr’s Internet-only alternative allows customers to “cut the cord” and walk away from expensive bundled cable packages. The company’s broadband offering is far superior to the often painfully slow options available from the major suppliers.  As more consumers and businesses stream video, play games, and use multiple devices and services simultaneously, faster broadband is a necessity to everyday life/activities.

As a local company, founded at MassChallenge in 2010, netBlazr excels at providing extraordinary customer service and support. The company has Boston’s only 5-star Yelp rating among all the local Internet Service Providers (ISPs). This is particularly appealing to new apartments, multi-unit homes and condo associations seeking to bring best-in-class services to the residents of their buildings.
