Local Telecom Company Increases Network Bandwidth, Unveils

Special Offer in Response to COVID-19 Outbreak

In the midst of the coronavirus outbreak, many local businesses are seeking out technology options to enable their employees to work from home. Northland Communications is increasing its network bandwidth as well as offering free software-based phones and video conferencing software to help local businesses implement teleworking plans.

“We want local businesses to know that we’re here to help,” said Jim McCarthy, president of Northland Communications. “Right now, our focus is to help our customers leverage their technology, share best practices, and provide technology, tools, and resources to help businesses adapt during the COVID-19 pandemic as best as they can.”

In addition to increasing network bandwidth to support customers working remotely, Northland is offering free software-based phones and video conferencing software to help ease the transition pain for businesses looking to implement remote-work options for their employees.

Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) systems, like Northland’s cloud-based Business Unlimited solution, enables employees to work from anywhere with an internet connection. Northland is offering free cloud-based collaboration software, the Accession client (soft-phone) and Accession Meeting (100-participant video conferencing). New customers as well as current Northland customers who need to expand their services are eligible to receive these products at no cost through June 30, 2020.

Software-based phone systems, like Accession, allow users’ computer and mobile devices to become an extension of their desk phone and offer teleworking features like video and audio conferencing, instant messaging, outlook integration, screen sharing, group collaboration tools and much more.

This offer is available for all businesses in Central New York and surrounding areas and has been made possible by our partners at Metaswitch and Zoom. No contract is required. See our website for full offer details.

“In this time of uncertainty, we hope our local business partners will lean on us to help them navigate these uncharted waters,” said McCarthy. “We have a responsibility to our customers and community to offer technical solutions and help them address challenges they’re facing during this crisis and beyond.”
