The Internet's best kept secret is now in Seattle!

Posted June 6, 2017 by Webpass

Today, we announced that Webpass is ready to move into the Emerald City, one Ethernet-wired building at a time. We’ve made great progress in Seattle, identifying the first building where we’ll provide high-speed Internet service, and hiring a General Manager to lead the local Webpass team.

Webpass provides blazing-fast Internet (up to a gigabit per second!) to residential and business customers, starting with Fifteen Twenty-One Second Avenue, a 40-story luxury tower located above Pike Place Market. We expect to add many more buildings throughout the city, and, starting today, residents of other apartment and condo buildings can reach out to express interest in bringing Webpass to their home.

Leading the Seattle team as General Manager is Craig Friedson, a 20-year Seattle resident and telecom and Internet industry professional for nearly 25 years. Craig’s industry expertise, combined with his local knowledge, will be a great asset to our new home office in Seattle.

Our Mission: Make Your Internet Experience Simple.

At Webpass, we help residents and businesses by offering blazing fast, simple Internet in urban areas. We do this by building and maintaining our own network and by making it affordable and reliable. We are a team of highly dedicated individuals who share two things: a passion for problem-solving, and a commitment to simplicity.

We’ve Come A Long Way.

It all started with one building in San Francisco. After experiencing success in the San Francisco Bay area, we realized that we could share this service with others and soon launched in San Diego, Miami, Chicago, Boston, and Denver.

Webpass was founded in 2003 by Charles Barr with the mission to be a leader in Internet excellence. The user-friendly Internet service has garnered rave reviews, drawing recognition from TechCrunch, SF Gate and Gigaom. In 2016, we were acquired by Google Fiber.

Today, Webpass powers tens of thousands of residential and business customers. Our service allows users to easily and quickly surf the Internet without modems, contracts, or gimmicks. We built Webpass to take the hassle out of Internet, so our customers can enjoy the simplicity of online surfing.
