About Us
WiLine is a provider of fast, flexible, affordable broadband solutions to businesses, building owners, wholesale providers and residential consumers. We offer configurable solutions that empower our customers to select the right combination of bandwidth and services to maximize productivity. Through a single broadband connection over our private network, we deliver voice, data, video and mobility solutions.

Advanced Network
Our tailored solutions are delivered over our private Metro Ethernet Network.  Last mile connectivity is provided via fiber or wireless fiber line extension, allowing us to deliver up to 1 Gbps without relying on the legacy architecture of the incumbent phone companies. This advanced network allows us to offer all the data and communication services businesses and residential consumers have come to expect but with configuration options and price points that are truly unexpected.

Configurable Services
Our services are delivered over a single broadband connection so our customers can utilize every byte to enhance their productivity.  We offer bandwidth in 1 Mbps increments, starting at 1 Mbps and going all the way up to 1 Gbps, enabling our customers to utilize exactly what they need. Our superior delivery method facilitates instantaneous bandwidth upgrades so customers can scale their communication services as their needs grow, putting choice and control into the right hands.

Personalized Support
We offer an industry-leading Service Level Agreement (SLA) to ensure our customers receive the highest availability and throughput with the lowest latency and packet loss on both our network and the last mile. Our customer support team stands behind our Service Level Agreement, available 24 hours a day seven days a week, providing the personalized attention that our customers deserve.

Company Foundation
Our company was founded on the desire to deliver scalable bandwidth and application services at the best rates to all our customers. From his past experience as the founder of a multi-billion dollar financial transaction processing company, John McGuire, CEO of WiLine, realized that most businesses and consumers were underserved by legacy providers and out-dated technology. With demand high and needs unmet, he seized the opportunity to use the latest technology available to bridge the last mile gap by building a carrier-class network that employs fiber and FCC licensed spectrum to deliver gigabit broadband in metropolitan areas. Today, WiLine is providing superior broadband communication services at market-leading prices.

    I have been working at Wiline full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was brought in to help with generating more inbound leads for the sales executives and also experimenting with different marketing channels to generate more leads. Took me about a month to be brought up to speed, get to know everyone, and feel pretty comfortable with how things are done. Now that I have been here over 6 months I can say I really like the culture here. Everyone is super friendly and really wants to help each other so the company can grow and boy the company growing. We are expanding into all these new markets and it is super exciting. The technology and how we deliver high speed internet to our customers is super interesting to me but then again I am kinda a geek but I really love this stuff and just think our tech is so innovating. I have to hand it to our technical department on what they do everyday.

    We just had our Christmas party and it was at a fancy restaurant in Redwood and had open bar all night, DJ and dancing, and they gave away iPads and Microsoft surfaces plus other prizes. Way better Christmas party than any other company I have worked at before.

    If you like a fast paced super high-tech environment and feels more like a startup than a 12 year old company then I would recommend coming to work for Wiline.

    Cons

    It can be hard getting hired. I recommended Wiline to a friend but he ended up not getting hired. They had a ton of people apply for that one job so they ended up going with the most qualified candidate. I can understand that but still a bummer my friend didn't get hired.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up what you are doing! Keep expanding to new markets so that we can hire more incredible people to join the team.
