Zhonka Broadband in the News


Fresh Cup - the Voice of the Speciality Beverage Industry, February 2006
"Why Wi-fi? - Pros and cons of a wireless cafe"
By Kristine Hansen

Dave Olson, minister of marketing at Zhonka, in Olympia, Wash, sell DSL Internet connections to a variety of companies (mostly cafes) in Olympia and throughout the Pacific Northwest. Cafe managers then turn around and offer wireless Internet to their coffee and tea sipping customers at no cost. "For us, it's a good marketing ploy," he says. "It promotes us in the community and puts out a lot of marketing goodwill. A year or so ago, it was mostly pay-per-use. Now people are drifting more toward doing the free thing." (note: not Dave Olson pictured)
