CANCUN, Mexico – GigNet, a Digital Infrastructure company with an extensive regional fiber optic broadband network from Costa Mujeres north of Cancun through the Hotel Zone of Tulum, announced today it is providing broadband and managed services for fast and reliable Internet to SLS Towers located in the exclusive Novo Cancun area of Puerto Cancun in Mexico. The SLS Tower features 104 luxury apartments with panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea, exclusive amenities, top quality materials and European-style designs. The architectural design is from GROW Architects and interior design is by Meyer Davis Studio. GigNet designed the network for the broadband needs of today and for new digital services and applications that will continue to define the modern Cancun lifestyle.
"A secure, robust network has become an essential necessity, especially since the onset of the Covid pandemic. More people are working from home and using the Internet for many aspects of their life. Our Managed Services approach means that we will be there over the long-term to meet the demand for new online services and smart home technologies as they emerge," said Mark Carney, OBE, President of GigNet Mexico. "We are excited about connecting homeowners and residents in the exclusive Novo Cancun area to our world class network – GigNet and SLS each stand for the highest standards of quality and customer care."
"Our homeowners and residents insist on an exceptional internet service connection. They are conducting business and attending school from home. Security, entertainment, and telemedicine also require seamless high-speed internet. I know GigNet can meet and exceed the expectations that our residents have regarding connectivity, having previously experienced their service myself," said Robert Kelleher of Inmobilia Group, the developer of SLS Towers. "GigNet is using their capital for the project and is installing a custom-built fiber-optic network which they will monitor 24/7 and expand as needed. As a developer this gives us tremendous peace of mind that our residents are in good hands now and in the future."
According to a new batch of Ookla Speedtest data, median speeds for the satellite broadband service temporarily dipped then climbed again. Meanwhile, the service's burst speeds appear to be on the rise.
Upstream consumption climbed 63% last year as peak usage shifted to business hours and away from a pre-pandemic surge typically seen during prime time. The nature of upstream usage has likely changed forever, OpenVault says.
Today’s access network architecture is under mounting pressure due to a continued surge in the number of connected devices, a proliferation of bandwidth-intensive customer applications and dramatic shifts in usage patterns related to the pandemic, such as work-from-home and e-learning.
