Many people have asked us what separates ZIRKEL from our competitors. Following are just a few things that separate us from “the other guys”.
What makes one doctor or auto-mechanic better than “the other guy”?
Aside from the rare exception of natural talent, most people can narrow the answer to that question down to experience. A well-known concept states – “10,000 hours of practice can make one an expert in a field”. Somebody new may come along and offer flashy new goods at rock bottom pricing, but the proof is in the pudding. Experience is worth paying for.
At ZIRKEL, we have been serving the Yampa Valley for over 19 years. We are experts when it comes to designing and delivering the most premium internet experience for YOU – our friends and neighbors. We have learned from our challenges over time to become a solutions-oriented company that continually expands and fine-tunes our network to maximize internet uptime (and enjoyment) for our subscribers.
Quality is Everything
At ZIRKEL, we have a quality first mentality when it comes to the subscriber hardware that we install at your house. That is why we only provide our customers with industry leading equipment, rather than settling for the “industry standard”. Some might argue that any old car will get you from point A to point B, but when you require the highest performance and reliability, you will often find that you get what you pay for.
For that reason, we have continued to provide our customers with industry leading technology by Cambium Networks, which is renowned by many Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPS) as the best in breed. Through intelligent GPS Synchronization, the highest quality chipsets, and superior build quality, nothing stands in Cambium’s way when it comes to providing fast, and reliable internet!
We have also partnered with Calix to provide the Highest Quality WiFi experience available today.
Although these technologies come at a major investment from ZIRKEL, we have stood by providing nothing less than the best for our customers.
ZIRKEL’s network infrastructure is intelligently built with failover equipment and secondary data routes that keep your internet live even during a disruptive event. While we will be the first to admit that our network is not perfect (no network is), we’ll do everything we can to effectively communicate the problem and get things back up and going as quickly as possible. And we’re always upgrading and tweaking the network for improved performance.
Hardware & system redundancy (and once again, using high quality equipment) has made our internet service the most resilient in the Valley. Imagine that video streaming, emails, and live gaming are all vehicles traveling on a highway (the internet). Some ISPs only use one highway, so while they are trying to fix their bridge that just collapsed, we have already provided multiple detours with the same “ETA” for our commuters.
Some “other guys” may try distributing internet from one source (because providing internet is not cheap!), but ZIRKEL’s network taps into THREE strategically located sources to ensure that you always have a way to reach out to the internet and stay online.
One business practice that we have always stood by is to Under-Promise and Over-Deliver. At Zirkel, we prefer to be honest and consistently deliver the speeds you are paying for AND MORE.
That’s right, that means if you are subscribed to Zirkel Wireless’ Turbo Plus (18 Mbps) connection, you will consistently see 18 Mbps speeds and more.
The “other guys” that sell plans of “up to 100mbps” are really saying (*occasionally you might get 100mbps but don’t be upset if you only see 15mbps, because your plan clearly states “up to”.)
To back up our great network and provide the highest quality internet service to you, our local team consists of over a dozen trained and qualified technicians who truly care about your internet experience and take great pride in your satisfaction with our product.
Remember – when you are paying for internet service, you are also recruiting who you want on your team when you need assistance. Since our team at ZIRKEL have been the professionals in wireless internet service for more than 18 years, we are truly the only wireless experts in the Valley.
Since we have invested in the highest quality equipment and have spent a ton of time fine tuning our network infrastructure, our troubleshooting times are minimal compared to the competition. Because of this, we are able to spend more time researching and developing services that bring more entertainment and higher performance to your internet like ZIRKEL Phone and ZIRKEL TV.
