Shareband, a UK-based broadband service provider, launched its first U.S. service in Seattle. Its first customer, a medical clinic in Everett, Wash., was connected in March, but it was not until recently that billing for services began.
The company, which uses off-the-shelf routers and its own software to bond broadband lines of various types from various providers, including DSL, cable modem and T-1, announced its plans to move into the U.S. late last year.
Shareband intends to expand throughout the U.S. but has focused early growth in the Northwest because it deployed its first network servers out of Seattle and because the closer end users are to those network servers, the less latency they’ll experience.
Shareband has also signed with partners Workdesk Solutions and InnocaCrew Technology Solutions. Formal partnerships with others, such as Net-Venture, a Tacoma, Wash., ISP, are pending.
