On September 1, 2018, SupraNet Communications, Inc. celebrated its 24th anniversary of delivering fast, direct and reliable Internet services to businesses in Wisconsin.
In 1994 SupraNet aspired to set a standard of excellence as a service provider, and to become a well-respected and engaged corporate citizen. 24 years later SupraNet remains responsive to the needs of more than 400 clients, provides relevant and scalable services, and has established a reputation for social responsibility and community involvement.
In the past year SupraNet has increased its Internet service offerings with greatly expanded fiber optic and wireless networks to better serve clients and have a greater reach in the Madison area. Currently, SupraNet has access to 175 miles of fiber optic cable and has over 100 buildings in the Madison area with SupraNet’s fiber currently in place. Those numbers continue to rise and the network expands to reach more and more businesses and apartment complexes. SupraNet’s managed service offerings continue to thrive with the expansion of managed Wi-Fi, VPN and firewall services started in 2017.
SupraNet remained active in the community by participating in the Big Brothers Big Sisters 2018 Bowl for Kids’ Sake event, and continued to provide and improve the complimentary Wi-Fi at the Dane County Regional Airport. SupraNet continued to invest in the community at their own expense in order to ensure greater access to the Internet by building fiber into numerous Madison Public Libraries and providing an outlet for all community members to have access to fast and reliable Internet for professional and personal development. In addition to the libraries, SupraNet has made a socially conscience commitment to the Madison community and has built fiber into city water towers to improve water utility metering and help better monitor water usage.
The Forward Festival, co-founded by SupraNet’s Founder and President, Bryan Chan, celebrates its ninth anniversary in August with 50+ events over eight days which focused on innovation and entrepreneurship. During the Forward Festival, High Tech Happy Hour (HTHH) celebrates its 17th anniversary. HTHH, a popular monthly networking event, is co-organized by SupraNet and Yahara Software. Together, HTHH and Monona Terrace presented another year of PechaKucha events to the community with a wide variety of topics.
Having established deep community roots, SupraNet continues to give back to the community through involvement with The Overture Center for the Arts, MMoCA, Madison Ballet, Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra, Madison Symphony Orchestra, Dane Buy Local, Downtown Madison Rotary, DMI, and many local Chambers of Commerce.
