In Their Own Words:

"Until one week ago I didn't even know what a metro Ethernet connection was. A telecommunications publication mentioned how it was going to drastically reduce the price per meg to businesses who qualified for service (IE: who were lucky enough to reside in a "Lit Building"). Not knowing if my building here in Beltsville had Ethernet available in it, I found ShopforEthernet.com through Google. After a few minutes I was pleasantly surprised to learn that it was available, and the knowledgeable consultant who contacted me was able to help me place my order which should be installed next week. Thanks for all your help."

  • substantially upgrade their current broadband connections.
  • move into a building with existing carrier facilities.
