Lamp Post Group Testimonial


Situation

Helping grow innovative new business is what Lamp Post Group is all about. As a venture capital small business incubator, Lamp Post Group offers start-ups a portfolio of benefits – from mentoring and starting capital and to backend accounting and facilities.


When it comes to helping attract these new businesses to Gig City, online connectivity is a critical element.


The Solution

EPB’s 1-Gigabit Professional Internet feed and VLANs help Lamp Post securely share information between its home base and the various companies it mentors around town. This Internet connectivity enables every entity to enjoy plenty of Internet bandwidth for moving content and streaming as well as SIP Trunks voiceover IP business phone service.


In addition, EPB provides Colo services as a safe haven for sensitive data.


The Result

“As a technology-based business that mentors other tech companies, if our Internet is down, it’s the same as a power outage – we all come to standstill,” says Joda Thongnopnua of Lamp Post Group.


“EPB treats its Internet service like a utility, so it’s always up and running. They’re committed to investment in innovation, which lowers the risk of start-ups considering Chattanooga as their headquarters.”
