PiNG!net now in Goodwill and Loubiere

Roseau, Dominica, February 23rd 2010:  Marpin’s broadband Internet service, PiNG!net, is not only blazing fast but rollout of the service is moving at high speeds as well.

Earlier this month, the company expanded the service to Canefield and PiNG!net is now available in Goodwill and Loubiere.  The surrounding areas in Goodwill include Federation Drive, St. Aroment, Stock Farm, Gutter and Tarish Pit.  In the Loubiere area, PiNG!net has also been switched on in Madrelle, Everton Estate, Leopoldville and Fond Baron.

Marie-Antoinette Mora, Marpin’s Public Relations Representative, says the Company has listened to calls from customers and other residents for a dependable Internet service and is moving rapidly to satisfy the demand.

“We are moving quickly to fulfill the needs of residents.  They have been clamouring for a simpler, more reliable and more affordable Internet service and we have answered their call with PiNG!net.  It’s more reliable because it’s real broadband, more affordable because the broadband cable modem is provided absolutely free of charge and you don’t have monthly line rentals to worry about and simpler because the connection is quick and there are no contracts hanging over your head,” says Ms. Mora.

Among the many satisfied customers who have signed on to the service since its launch last November is Evangelist Curtis Abraham of Canefield.

Mr. Abraham says “the service is quite excellent.  I have had no problems, no difficulties at all.  I want to advise everybody to become a Marpin Internet customer; they won’t be disappointed.”  Meanwhile, Cheryl Ryner of Roseau praised the service, “PiNG!net is great.  It’s fast and reliable.  I’m telling everybody to try it; it’s good.  I’ve suggested it to my friends and they can’t wait for it to come to their area.  It is far superior.  I have no regrets trying PiNG!net.”

PiNG!net, which is powered by Marpin, boasts the fastest personal broadband packages on the island with speeds of 1.5MB, 2.5MB and 3.5MB.  In addition to Goodwill, Loubiere and the neighbouring communities, the service is available in Roseau, Bath Estate, Elmshall, Pottersville, Silver Lake, Newtown, Fatima, Fortune, Kingshill, Melville Battery, Morne Bruce, Canefield, Imperial Road, Roger, Antrim, Checkhall and Massacre.

PiNG! is the brand name for the suite of services being launched by Marpin to segment its product and service offerings; a service range that is new and exciting.  PiNG!net is the first offering under the PiNG! brand.

    Let me inform not impressed that USAis being offered by Marpin 2K4 Channel 17 When the Winter games come on USA it cannot be carried as the rights have been bought by one company to broadcast in the Caribbean. So USA switches and returns after the game is done. Haven’t you seen the announcement you can only view the games on Sprtsmax. I not impressed with you.

    Also do not mix Marpin Telecoms and MArpin 2K4. MTB was broke and sold. M2K4 is a new company now righting the wrongs of MTB. Hey there company giving LIME a run in Cayman for internet service.
    They inherited an unreliable cable service and are now working to fix it. They are now rolling ping a spot at a time to ensure reliability. Give it a chance. Dominicans just like to run their mouth.

    I must say that it is good that Marpin is trying some thing with the internet, on the other hand, their cable service is so unreliable that I would never take up their internet service. How can Marpin offer good internet service when they cannot provide steady cable t,v. Every month end at least 6-10 channels are missing!!!! Imagine I was totally surprised to see that USA which is a channel that is well loved, is no longer being provided by Marpin………………………….

    First: As you can see from the way they are rolling out this new service, they are taking great care to make sure everything goes smoothly.

    Second: We are not living in that time again. Bandwidth is a lot cheaper and more available. There are better technologies available.

    On a side note though why are they advertising their service as 1.5MB, 2.5MB and 3.5MB that would mean basically , 12mb , 20mb and 28mb connections. Note that there is a difference mb= megabits, MB = megabytes. 1 MB = 8mb. I highly doubt that they are offering those speeds as the US is still stuck in the 10mb range for most commercial connections. But hey nobody really cares as long as facebook and DNO loads super fast its the best new thing lol.

    Come PING to Wallhouse so I can get rid of rotten LIME and their rotten service. This is why I LOVEEEEEE competition, the consumer ALWAYS benefits. Other businesses in Dominica need to take a page out of Marpin 2k4’s book
