Xpressweb Fiber Cafe grand opening
With a new second location inside Honey’s Marketplace, 260 East 300 South, Xpressweb Internet Services will better fill your Internet service shopping list. The July 19 grand opening featured free food, hourly drawings and the opportunity for the public to become familiar with Xpressweb’s latest Internet products.
Owned by Craig Baird and Andy Gant, Xpressweb was the first Internet provider to serve the southern Utah area. For the past 16 years since opening in 1996, the company has worked hard at providing new, faster technology.
From the very beginning, the two owners have stayed abreast of the constantly changing technologies. “All the changes have been a challenge to keep up with,” admitted Baird.
The grand opening showcased Xpressweb’s new 50 Mbps Fiber to Home Internet network. Five PCs offered for free public use are located in the cafe, allowing people the opportunity to test drive the new network. Free WiFi is also available, so you can connect your Ipad, Ipod, tablet, smartphone and laptop.
“This is the very forefront of internet technology,” said Baird. “This will put Kanab far ahead technologically than many communities, big or small, in the United States. We hope this new technology will help tip more economic development our way.”
Current customers can make payments, get information or schedule service calls at the Fiber Cafe. They can also provide assistance for your computers and other devices. Xpressweb’s original location inside Kanab Furniture will continue to operate with technical support and network operations managed from there.
“We created the Xpressweb Fiber Cafe for a couple of reasons,” said Baird. “We wanted to increase our visibility and help make us more accessible to our customers.”
