eLink Communications, a tenant-centric provider of broadband communications services, will pump new life into the heart of Los Angeles' business community with its agreement to wire 24 buildings on Wilshire Boulevard with gigabit-ready fiber optic communications for tenants. The deal allows eLink to bring broadband connectivity and high-speed Internet access to nearly 1,600 businesses in more than 5.5 million square feet of commercial real estate along the Wilshire Urban Corridor.

eLink will install a gigabit-ready fiber-optic infrastructure into each building, allowing tenants access to a total communications package including high-speed Internet access, networking, and range of Internet and business applications. eLink provides each building a CyberSuper, a hands-on technical specialist, who offers tenants in-person network design, administration, and support services. eLink's execution strategy requires that it provides services to the tenants immediately after the buildings are wired.

eLink's broadband communications package and patented sales and service model allow property owners and managers of multi-tenant office buildings to take advantage of a value-added amenity and technology upgrade at no cost while providing a marketing and leasing tool to attract and retain tenants.
