“As broadband access continues the evolutionary trend towards becoming an essential service, network downtime is no longer acceptable.”

Calgary, Canada, December 17, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Brent Grisdale, President of Rigstar Communications Inc., announced today that in partnership with iTel Networks, the company has launched its new product “High Availability Broadband”, a superior quality Internet solution available throughout the greater Calgary area.

Robert Hart, Rigstar Communications’ VP of Business Development, said Rigstar’s new product will not only deliver fully redundant, dedicated and symmetrical broadband services that are scalable from 2.0 Mbps to 100.0 Mbps, but its True Path Diversity will practically eliminate network downtime.

“As broadband access continues the evolutionary trend towards becoming an essential service, network downtime is no longer acceptable,” said Hart. “Rigstar is excited to introduce a cost-effective, high performance and completely redundant broadband solution that is guaranteed to 99.99 per cent network availability.
