Our experience with Unite Private Networks during the design and construction of the district’s fiber optic network was extremely positive. Not to be underestimated, Unite Private Networks was able to coordinate and work effectively with the public entities to obtain the necessary permits as well as with the private entities that prepared their resources for attachment of the cables. They were also accommodating when we requested modifications during the two-year construction period to meet our changing needs. Overall, Unite Private Networks was responsive to everything we asked of them and I would highly recommend Unite to anyone undertaking a project like our.

The switch over from the existing wireless network to the fiber network was accomplished with a minimum of network interruption during a holiday break. Any troubleshooting needed has been accomplished with little or no interruption. All deadlines were met. The fiber network was installed by January, 2005.

Unite Private Networks was very helpful working with the City of Liberty and meeting the District’s needs. Even though there were setbacks during the installation that were beyond their control, they pulled in additional resources to complete the job with no additional cost to the District. The designers of the project were very knowledgeable and have done a great job in creating an infrastructure that we will be able to utilize and expand on for many years to come.

Community High School District 218 is pleased to have UPN as a service partner.” said John Byrne, Superintendent of CHSD #218. “The District has been searching for ways to increase its bandwidth and UPN has offered us this opportunity.

The Newman Center – St. Thomas Aquinas Church is extremely pleased and appreciative of our partnership with Unite Private Networks. Over the past year, the Newman Center converted its phone service and increased its internet bandwidth with UPN. Throughout the process, UPN’s level of proactive, customer-focused service made our transition seamless and stress free.

Each February the Newman Center hosts its annual phone-a-thon campaign which features fourty student volunteers calling our benefactors. Unite Private Networks provided us with incredible phone service throughout. The clear, reliable service was terrific – the backbone to one of our most successful phone-a-thons yet! We were thrilled.

And then the COVID-19 pandemic struck.

All of the Newman Center’s liturgies, student events and public gatherings were abruptly cancelled. Almost immediately, UPN stepped up – once again – by rapidly deploying increased internet bandwidth, enabling our ministries to become 100% digital. Through their assistance,
visitors could live stream Masses, Holy hours and pastoral messages. Endless conference calls ran without a glitch. We even live streamed a number of previously scheduled weddings. UPN’s Internet service kept our Virtual Newman running smoothly throughout.

Perhaps clear phone calls and uninterrupted streaming are relatively low priorities. A few months ago they were for me. That was until the Newman Center’s phone-a-thon -supported by UPN- was our last meaningful fundraising event before everyone was quarantined. That was
until our primary means to minister to thousands of students, alumni and benefactors became live streaming. That was until the only way a bride’s parents could watch their daughter’s wedding, due to COVID-19 concerns, was by streaming and providing access to friends and family.

At that point, I realized how essential a partner like Unite Private Networks truly is. On behalf of our staff, students, our newlyweds and their parents, I say thank you!!!

We particularly appreciate the attention to detail that Unite Private Networks’ representatives exhibit. They (UPN) routinely brought the right people to make decisions and who understood what we were trying to accomplish, not just salesmen.
