Telkonet's EthoStream Chosen as Preferred HSIA Partner by Twenty Four Seven Hotels
Installations on Four Properties Underway as EthoStream Expands its Industry- Leading Market Presence
MILWAUKEE, Wis., June 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- EthoStream, a division of Telkonet Inc. (OTCQB: TKOI) and one of the nation's largest hospitality high-speed internet access (HSIA) network providers, announced today that Twenty Four Seven Hotels, a Hospitality Management Company based in Newport Beach, California has chosen EthoStream as its Preferred High-Speed Internet Access Provider ("HSIA").
"We're very pleased to be partnering with Twenty Four Seven Hotels as their preferred HSIA provider throughout their properties. I believe our selection underscores the value EthoStream can deliver to customers that care deeply about all aspects of their guests' stay," stated Jason Tienor, CEO of Telkonet. "Providing the best internet access technology and customer service available to the hospitality industry is the reason more than 2,400 properties trust us to support their guests and we continue to add industry-leading clients with high expectations such as Twenty Four Seven Hotels."
EthoStream's "Total Solution" offers a complete package of services required for quality wired and wireless high-speed Internet access. Dedicated employees conduct site surveys, install equipment and provide service after installation with on-site and remote support. Unlike many competitors, EthoStream employs a knowledgeable, well-trained staff of support technicians, so users can rely on an in-house team to provide rapid, friendly assistance 24/7.
Network installations have begun in four of Twenty Four Seven Hotels' properties including Four Points by Sheraton in Tempe, AZ., Holiday Inn in La Mesa, CA., Holiday Inn Express & Suites Otay Mesa in San Diego, CA. and the TownPlace Suites Ontario Airport in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. The TownePlace Suites location is being installed to meet Marriott's 2013 GPNS standards, bringing EthoStream's count of certified properties up to fifty. Additionally, there are four other Twenty Four Seven premium properties that have been identified as candidates for EthoStream's network connectivity.
"We came to EthoStream to meet Marriott's requirements for HSIA providers, but after the success of that installation and experiencing how easy the entire process was, we were happy to join EthoStream's Preferred Partner program. "They took the time to look at our needs and worked to create a solution that made sense from a financial standpoint" said Scott Terry, Director of Operations for Twenty Four Seven Hotels.
Twenty Four Seven Hotels joins Summit Hotel Properties, Benchmark Hospitality, Destination Hotels and Resorts, Marcus Hotels and Resorts, Red Lion Hotels, OTO Development and TMI Communications, among others that have chosen EthoStream as their Preferred Partner in providing superior high-speed internet access to their portfolio of properties.
