Vancouver, British Columbia – (The Hosting News) – February 2, 2006 – Internet infrastructure provider and dedicated hosting company, PEER 1 Network Enterprises, Inc., has announced that SPOTBOWL has selected PEER 1 as their Internet infrastructure provider to power their live polling of Super Bowl commercials during and after upcoming Super Bowl XL.
Visitors to the site can vote on over 50 commercials and, unlike similar sites, view real-time results.
SPOTBOWL, now in its third year, lets viewers rank the commercials with ratings that range from touchdown to fumble or vote for the MVP award for the most valuable commercial. Results can be viewed in real-time, with the final winners posted after the polls close at 3 p.m. EST on Monday, February 6th.
Michael Pavone, President of Pavone Advertising and Public Relations of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, explained, ”This is our third year of running the consumer poll. Our traffic has increased significantly from 12,000 hits in our first year to 196,000 last year. Thatâ€™s an awful lot of traffic in a two-day period, so we want to ensure that our network infrastructure can handle the further growth we expect in 2006. Thatâ€™s where PEER 1 comes in, because their network is reputed to be able to handle just about any volume of traffic our website experiences. They were also able to custom build servers for us in the very short timeframe that we needed which made the decision to make PEER 1 our dedicated hosting partner an easy one.”
Rajan Sodhi, PEER 1 Director of MARCOM, added, ”Watching commercials during the Super Bowl has become a recreational sport in itself over the years. I find it very entertaining to see companies try to out-do one another with their ads. I will be keeping a close eye on SPOTBOWL.com to vote for my favorites, and to see the public’s reaction. It’s a great concept and I’m excited that PEER 1 can contribute to the SPOTBOWL movement.”
