Deerfield Beach, Florida – (via THE HOSTING NEWS) – August 19, 2005 – Web United President
Michael Spiegel spent the last seven years building a thriving Managed Network Services business serving thousands of business customers throughout South
Florida. Today, however, he cites the resources of Web United’s new parent
company Landmark Communications as the principal edge over his competitors as
South Florida’s largest Managed Network Services provider.
Since being acquired by Landmark’s subsidiary, Continental Broadband of
Norfolk, Virginia, in late 2004, Web United has continued to upgrade its
equipment to remain cutting edge in South Florida’s business solutions market.
Continental Broadband owns and operates a group of commercially focused
Managed Network Service providers in markets across the country, including
Chicago, Baltimore, Norfolk and Richmond.
Mr. Spiegel commented on the acquisition, “We’re part of a much larger team now as part of the Landmark-Continental family. ISPs come and go, however with the resources of our parent company, including a growing acquisition strategy, we’re capable of competing for any customer in the South Florida market.”
Continental Broadband CEO Charlie Watkins added, “We are delighted to be in the South Florida market and are committed to exploring the opportunities for expansion and product development that Web United brings.”
Landmark is an 80-year-old private company, which owns media properties including television stations, newspapers and The Weather Channel. Web United is a full-service Managed Network Services company specializing in business solutions, including Internet connectivity, collocation, managed security and VoIP. Web United provides services to some of the largest businesses in South Florida.
