LodgeNet Interactive Corporation (NASDAQ: LNET), a leading provider of media and connectivity solutions to hospitality and healthcare businesses, today announced an agreement with Velocity, The Greatest Phone Company Ever, Inc., designating LodgeNet Broadband as a “platinum partner” of Velocity solutions to the U.S. hospitality industry.

The partnership positions LodgeNet to offer hoteliers primary backhaul bandwidth (T1 circuits or bigger), as well as an aggregation service (VBandTM) that can add bandwidth from less expensive sources (such as cable modems and DSL) to increase the capacity and redundancy of the property’s guest access networks. The Velocity bandwidth aggregation service (VBandTM) is subscription based, eliminating the capital outlay commonly associated with bandwidth aggregation devices.
 
“LodgeNet Broadband is constantly looking at solutions that will not only bring our customers the best service today, but will position them for success in the future. Velocity’s business model and VBandTM aggregation service do just that,” said Steve Pofahl, senior vice president/general manager of LodgeNet Broadband.
 
“Excellent customer service and cutting-edge technology are key differentiators in the hospitality sector,” said Greg Kiley, president and CEO of Velocity. “LodgeNet has a record of excellence on both fronts, and we believe having them as a “platinum partner" will greatly help us extend our solutions into an industry that is becoming more bandwidth intensive all the time.”
