Multiple Dwelling Units

With over 35% of residents living in apartments, condominiums or townhomes, this is a large target market. Many property owners are not aware of how a Central Distribution System can solve the aesthetic and liability issues that surround tenants having their own dishes.

The System Operator is the service provider for the property. Responsibilities include securing a Right of Entry, registering the property, building the infrastructure, activating tenants and providing customer service. In return for this, the System Operator receives various revenue streams from Multiband.

Utilizing the rate card and available channels, the properties can tailor the channel lineup to fit the demographics of their property. The DIRECTV Lodging and Institutions Viewing Agreement is used for this application.

    Cons

    Since Goodman Networks purchased Multiband the company has begun to sink. Goodman fired the executive staff one year after the acquisition, regardless of the signed contract stating they wouldn't do so for three years. A couple weeks later Goodman fired 30% of the corporate office and got rid of an entire division. Since then Multiband has been losing contracts and the rest of the remaining employees at the corporate office have been dropping like flies. Multiband is a sinking ship, and it's all due to Goodman Networks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Multiband management was great, Goodman Networks doesn't know the industry and is making uneducated decisions.
