Partnership with area schools and clinics to benefit both Company and Community
STERLING HEIGHTS, MI (ACCESSWIRE - October 14, 2013) - Summit Digital Inc, a subsidiary of WWA Group Inc, has completed the installation of service agreements involving provisioning of specialized high speed internet services to Pine River School District and Mercy Health Physician Partners, both located within Summit's Michigan service footprint.
"These new high speed systems are examples of how Summit's ability to extend state of the art connectivity to rural areas can expand our business and make a significant contribution to the communities we serve." explained Summit CEO Tom Nix. "Modern, easily upgradeable high speed internet service is taken for granted in urban education and health care, and rural decentralization makes it even more important. We are committed to providing residential, commercial, agricultural and industrial customers in rural America with the highest standard of service."
The Pine River School District agreement involved the installation of 7 miles of fiber optics with initial speeds of 100 Mbps, potentially upgradeable to 10 Gbps.
"Many rural schools still rely on obsolete copper connections or overpriced early-generation fiber optic systems." continued Nix. "Given the emergence of online standardized testing and the importance of the internet-based curriculum sources, that puts their students at a real disadvantage, which this program is designed to correct."
The Mercy Health Physician Partners in McBain, Michigan now has high speed Internet services, providing for real time sharing of records, diagnostic results, and other data with area hospitals and other facilities. The service is designed to improve the standard of area health care by providing closer links between primary care and hospital physicians.
"These agreements will serve as examples of what a partnership between Summit and community institutions can achieve," concluded Nix. "We hope that these showpiece projects will encourage similar agreements elsewhere in our service footprints located in Michigan, Indiana, and Oklahoma. We hope to see a day when every school, every health care facility as well as many other institutions and businesses enjoy all of the opportunities that state of the art connectivity provides."
Michigan-based Summit Digital acquires Wireless Internet providers and underutilized rural and semi-rural Cable systems, many of them providing only TV service, and upgrades them to provide the full "triple play" packages of TV, Broadband Internet, and voice telephony that dominate the urban cable market, increasing per-subscriber revenue and attracting new subscribers within the existing system footprint. Summit Digital builds value by acquiring systems at valuations based on their limited existing revenues and upgrading them to their full potential.
