Wireless Internet service provider TengoInternet today (Jan. 16) marked its fifth year in business.
According to a press release, the company has grown its customer base from one RV campground in Austin, Texas, to hundreds of Wi-Fi enabled parks and outdoor hospitality venues in 30 U.S. states and Mexico.
“Helping hospitality operators keep travelers connected is the core of what we do,” said Eric Stumberg, president and CEO of Texas-based TengoInternet. “Our challenges continue to be executing our growth and continually improving upon our great service to our customers. To this end, we’ve retained 97% of our original customers.”
In a recent customer survey conducted by TengoInternet, 85% of park owners responded that Wi-Fi is an important amenity to attracting guests to their campgrounds.
“We’re a premium resort providing premium amenities and service to guests,” said Jim Rowley, owner of Austin Lone RV Resort and an original TengoInternet customer. “We were one of the first resorts in the U.S. with Wi-Fi and TengoInternet made the service work.”
TengoInternet was founded in 1997 by Stumberg, an entrepreneur who started his technology career with Dell Corp.
