Kansas City, Mo. (January 10, 2022)
Garrett Wiseman, Founder and Chief Executive of Mercury Broadband announced today the company’s introduction of a new suite of Residential Broadband Services that provide customers with better visibility, enhanced security, and easier control of their High-Speed Internet connections through new Mercury@Home packages.
The new Mercury@Home packages will provide customers with an easy-to-use smartphone application, a customized home network installation, a state-of-the-art
Wi-Fi 6 router, and additional mesh home network extenders as required to maximize Internet speeds and quality of service within the customers’ residence. Initially, the company will offer two new Mercury@Home packages called Mercury Essentials and Mercury Enhanced. Customers will be able to enjoy new features at their fingertips such as advanced service analytics, performance data, content and parental controls, device bandwidth consumption management, and enhanced security and privacy protection —all from the convenience of their smartphone and the Mercury@Home application. Future enhancements will include smart appliance management, home security, and video surveillance, etc.
In addition to the introduction of the new Mercury@Home packages, Mr. Wiseman also announced the expansion of the company’s services into the St. Joseph, Missouri area. The company’s new Missouri market will provide Broadband services to homes and businesses in the rural and surrounding areas of St. Joseph across Buchanan County – including the areas of Atchinson, Brown and Doniphan Counties in Kansas. Brett Rhodes has been named the new General Manager for Mercury Broadband in this area and will lead the company’s efforts in the new service center region.
“We are excited to introduce our new Mercury@Home offerings to customers across all of our service areas, including our new Missouri region”, said Mr. Wiseman. “We believe in helping our customers manage how they use their Internet connection rather than just providing the access connection itself. Our Mercury@Home solutions provide a smarter Internet solution —a complete, turnkey service that offers them convenient and easy access to track and manage all their various Internet devices, electronics and interfaces within their home”, said Mr. Wiseman.
Finally, the company also announced the celebration of their new 32,000 sq. ft. office facility at 3400 Southwest Van Buren Street in Topeka, Kansas. An official ribbon cutting ceremony will be held later today at the location which will house close to 200 employees, including both the company’s National Customer Support and Inside Sales Centers. Company executives, customers, local officials and representatives of the Greater Topeka Partnership will participate in today’s celebration and tour the new facility.
New Mercury@Home services are available immediately across all qualified company service areas in Kansas, Indiana and Missouri. Interested customers should visit www.mercurybroadband.com or call toll free 1-800-354-4915 for more information.
