Metrofi Selects The Super Cantenna To Boost Customer Connections To Citywide Wi-Fi Networks
SAN DIEGO, CA - September 27, 2006 - The Super Cantenna Wi-Fi booster antenna from Wireless Garden, has been chosen by Metrofi as the preferred antenna to extend the coverage area of its wireless broadband signal. Metrofi, the leader in providing fast and Free Wireless Internet to municipalities, will recommend the Super Cantenna to customers who need to connect to a network from the fringes of its operational radius, or who may be looking for a directional antenna to maximize their signal.
“Metrofi’s business and residential customers in Cupertino, Santa Clara and Sunnyvale California who currently enjoy free, high-speed internet access from anywhere in the municipality may now be able to roam well beyond their current coverage area and still stay connected,” says Ben Zifrony, Metrofi’s Vice President of Sales and Business Development.
The Super Cantenna has emerged as the most effective, low-cost solution for connecting to wireless providers, extending Wi-Fi range and bridging network gaps for the government agencies, businesses and individuals who are using it. A high-gain directional antenna, the Super Cantenna allows access to a network with the least amount of interference. This is because the signal is narrowly focused, like a spotlight, on the network access point.
The Super Cantenna is easy to operate and connect to previously out-of-range hotzones (according to the company website, “Just plug it in, point in the direction of the network, and surf!”). For example, in some areas, the Super Cantenna can increase the Metrofi service range by as much as a mile.
“Think of the Super Cantenna as the mini satellite dish of the Wi-Fi generation,” says Jason Brook, President of Wireless Garden. “Instead of pointing at a satellite, we point the Super Cantenna at a Metrofi access point mounted on a light post or building. The Super Cantenna allows Metrofi to greatly increase the coverage footprint in the communities they service.
Their shared goal of providing efficient, affordable wireless service to connect communities makes the companies natural allies, says Brook. “Metrofi is leading the charge in rolling out free municipal Wi-Fi networks, and the Super Cantenna is the world’s most popular Wi-Fi booster antenna.”
The Super Cantenna is available for only $49.95 and is available in stores and online at CompUSA, Radio Shack, Circuit City, J&R, TigerDirect and many others. The Super Cantenna can also be purchased directly from Wireless Garden at www.cantenna.com.
