May 1, 2009 – (HOSTSEARCH.COM) – Chicago‐based managed web hosting provider, SingleHop
, announced that, starting today, all SingleHop customers‐ new and old‐ have been upgraded to 100MB uplink ports and only outbound traffic will be metered. Starting a few months ago, SingleHop chose to lead the industry by offering free 100Mbps uplink ports to all customers, at no cost. That is exactly 10 times more capacity than the industry average of 10Mbps. This increased capacity benefits customers by providing a larger pipe to push their traffic through. This translates into less latency, faster download times for files, movies, streaming video and audio.
Zak Boca, President and CEO of SingleHop commented, “We are focused on providing customers with the most capacity possible. By increasing the port speeds and only metering outbound traffic, we save our clients money in overages. It facilitates the buying process as all customers automatically get 100Mbps uplink ports right from the start. And, since the increased throughput allows our customers’ servers to handle larger amounts of peak data transfers, by default, all customers are better equipped to handle DDoS attacks.”
Andy Pace, Vice President of Operations at SingleHop, also noted, “last year, SingleHop upgraded all customer servers to a minimum of 2 GB of RAM at no additional charge. This time, we are upping the ante again by getting all customers on 100Mbs uplink ports, moves that continue to demonstrate our commitment to our clients' ongoing success.”
