Proxim Wireless provides WiFi solution to Ft. Myers Retirement Community in Florida

Telecom Lead America: Proxim Wireless announced that Tamiami Village, a 55+ retirement community in Ft. Myers, Florida has launched its own community WiFi internet network using Proxim Wireless WiFi solution.

The community has launched its community WiFi internet network for its residents at an affordable cost.

“Since our retirement community is on a fixed income, many residents had to go to the clubhouse to access the internet. With our own WiFi network, more of our residents can now afford their own internet access as we charge a one-time fee for the subscriber unit and a small fee to cover the cost of the installation,” said Barbara J. Oliveira, association manager of Tamiami Master Association.

The company said that earlier a neighboring retirement community in Bonita Springs had also used the Proxim Wireless WiFi solution to provide internet access to its residents utilizing a 40-foot pole in the center of the park along with Proxm’s MP-11 base station.

“It is enlightening to see retirement communities pursuing ways to help their residents afford internet communications which is becoming more and more of a necessity in today’s economy. Compared to a wired grid solution, these communities save on installation costs while retaining phenomenal performance,” said Geoff Smith, VP Business Development, Strategic Accounts at Proxim Wireless.

The village has a 40-foot pole in the center of the park utilizing Proxim’s MP-8100 base station and omni antenna. Tamiami Village is a large retirement community in Ft. Myers, a city of 63,000 located on the banks of the Caloosahatchee River on southwest Florida’s coast.
