Wicked Brings Fiber Connectivity to 56 Roland in Charlestown!

Posted by Lydia Whiteford on Nov 29, 2016

We are excited to announce that Wicked is now servicing 56 Roland Street in Charlestown, MA! Our first customer in the building, Confer Health, has just moved to the building and decided to go with Wicked as its ISP. Confer is a Start-up dedicated to finding easier ways for women to monitor their ovulation cycles and fertility. While they are still in the very early stages of the company, they are working hard to test their pregnancy tests and ovulation predictor kits, which are designed to give couples answers sooner than the standard 2-week wait period. The company recently moved from Allston to Charlestown, because they plan on growing exponentially this year. Enter, Wicked Bandwidth. With Wicked’s dedicated and symmetrical service, Confer can have guaranteed reliable and scalable bandwidth to fit their needs as they grow. With the addition of Confer Health to Wicked’s happy customer base, our reps decided to pay some visits to other companies in the building.     One of the companies we met with, whose headquarters are in 56 Roland, was The Finally Light Bulb Company.  Finally makes lightbulbs that produce the warm, omnidirectional light that we are lacking with LED bulbs, but emit 75% less energy and last 15x longer thanks to Finally’s use of acandescent technology. Their mission is to bring back indoor light that makes people look their best, and give people an option besides the harsh blue light provided by LED lightbulbs.  We were thrilled to get to know more about the company and tour their hip new office space. You can learn more about Finally here.         ...

Wicked Bandwidth Launches Crowdsourced Method for Deploying Network

Posted by Sarah Johnson on Nov 18, 2016

Innovation has outpaced bandwidth in Boston; Wicked Bandwidth hopes to bring faster Internet to underserved businesses Boston, Mass.  – Nov. 17, 2016 – Wicked Bandwidth, a Boston-born, fiber-based business Internet provider, today announced the launch of their new #BostonBandwidth initiative, an innovative new way local businesses can self-identify their need for better bandwidth. Wicked Bandwidth’s #BostonBandwidth program aims to capture concentrations of businesses with poor bandwidth capacity or limited provider options through an easy web form submission process. Wicked Bandwidth is hopeful that its #BostonBandwidth movement will enable them to build their fast, secure and reliable fiber Internet service for the companies in Boston that need it most. “Crowdsourcing is being used in a variety of ways in business to get real time demand information that is used to provide cost-effective solutions.  We have really bought into the idea that if we ask the business community in Boston where they have a need for bandwidth – they’ll tell us,” says Michael Murphy, founding partner at Wicked Bandwidth.  “When we can zero in on areas of concentrated interest, we can bring in far superior Internet service at a much more affordable rate.” By crowdsourcing fiber demand, Wicked Bandwidth is pursuing a unique alternative to other carriers that engage in speculative building.  Traditionally, a spec building strategy has often led to higher rates for customers as well as missing entire geographic areas in need of better Internet service.  Wicked Bandwidth’s crowdsourcing demand approach offers a way for them to make better-informed investments while reaching a broader base of potential business customers. “Part of the reason carriers have to maintain higher rates...

How much Bandwidth do I need?

Posted by Lydia Whiteford on Oct 31, 2016

Many businesses are so steeped in the daily grind of their day-to-day operations that they don’t realize they’ve outgrown their Internet service. In fact, it’s not uncommon for companies to have a “set it and forget it” mode where they sign a telecom contract and just deal with the services they have – even when their usage and demands outgrow their bandwidth. We’re here to remind businesses to stop squeezing into a business Internet plan that doesn’t fit general IT needs. But first, how the heck do you know what those needs are? How much bandwidth you need is dependent upon a few factors that are easy to identify – but  might require you to do some planning. Figuring out your Internet services needs depends on the following factors: Number of users Type of applications your employees are running Acceptable speeds and/or slowing of the network, especially in peak times Your company culture — Is flextime an option for employees? Do you have a loose or strict non-work related Internet content policy? With those key factors in mind, here are a few questions to begin the process and guide your bandwidth planning. How many users do you have? Would you categorize them as light, heavy, or moderate users? Generally speaking, the number of users is multiplied by the traffic estimate (based on Internet usage), and that equals the bandwidth needed. It’s not a hard and fast formula, and the way you calculate Internet usage can get a little tricky. You most likely have a variety of light users, moderate users, and heavy users, so the best thing to do...
