RCN Chicago Launches Its Business Solutions Offerings in Evanston

Award-winning communications provider brings its network solutions to small, midsize and large local area businesses

CHICAGO, IL – Mar. 5, 2019 — RCN Business, an award-winning communications provider delivering network solutions for high-speed internet, voice, and video, today announced that its Business Solutions services are now available in Evanston, Illinois. The recently completed expansion of its fiber optic network in the Fountain Square area of downtown Evanston enables the company to provide its high-speed, reliable services for small to enterprise-sized businesses in the community.

“Local businesses are the cornerstone of our communities, and we’re now prepared to support those in the Evanston area with our telecom expertise,” said Tom McKay, General Manager for RCN Chicago. “RCN is dedicated to providing competitive solutions to help Evanston businesses thrive in their day-to-day operations while continuing to offer its local residents award-winning services including industry-leading internet, phone and TV options.”

RCN Business provides data, voice and video services and a variety of scalable products for businesses of all sizes, including Hosted Voice, Managed Security, Business Phone Call and more.

GAB Radio Network, a local Evanston business, has seen tremendous success as one of RCN’s first business customers in the area. GAB Radio offers professional radio broadcast technical operations, program distribution, national radio syndication services and related broadcast production consulting services.

“Before RCN, our network required six telecom providers to simply maintain normal business operations. With RCN’s Business Solutions, we’re able to completely streamline our telecom services, allowing us to work far more effectively and efficiently,” said Chuck Duncan, General Manager of GAB Radio Network. “Given the nature of our professional and technical services, we needed a centralized, reliable solution and RCN was able to deliver just that. They have brought us cost savings, higher internet speeds and improved reliability. We are now able to better serve the Evanston community.”

RCN Business provides GAB Radio Network with a fiber optic network, consolidated communication services, simplified account management, and full redundancy to improve reliability and disaster recovery ability.

RCN Chicago has offered reliable phone, television and high-speed internet services to residents of the Evanston area since 2017 and is an active member of the community and the Evanston Chamber of Commerce.
