Be warned Spectrum, Frontier, Cox, AT&T, and every other substandard internet provider in Northeast Ohio, there’s a new sheriff in town. It goes by the name Spencer Fi, and it’s being created by Proper Access—the company responsible for the Fort Knox of Wi-Fi security and connectivity.

Sean O’Brien, founder of Proper Access and the mastermind behind the ambitious undertaking to create an internet that’s so fast, so secure, and so spectacular he needs a 2,500-square-foot building to contain it, insists he is building the future.

“Recently the FCC deregulated two radio frequency spectrums that have allowed for the creation of Spencer Fi,” Sean says. “Instead of via cable, our internet will be delivered over the air. It’s faster, more reliable and totally hack-proof.”

Spencer Fi is a totally wireless, cable-free gateway to the internet. Sean says he and his team are gearing up to provide it to every homeowner who wants it. “It’s going to be particularly well received by people who own large homes, where the need for better, more secure coverage comes into play.”

“Traditionally, getting set up for internet is a nightmare,” Sean explains. “You have to schedule an appointment, take time off work, wait hours for a technician, get pushed into buying extras you don’t want, and have boxes and places to put the boxes. Then you have to install boosters to make sure you can get access no matter where you are in the house, and if there’s inclement weather, a power outage, or some other unknown issue, your internet is down for the count until you can get a technician out to service it. Spencer Fi is the antithesis of all of that.”

Sean O’Brien, founder of Proper Access and the mastermind behind the ambitious undertaking to create an internet that’s so fast, so secure, and so spectacular he needs a 2,500-square-foot building to contain it, insists he is building the future.

To connect to Spencer Fi, you simply make a quick call to Proper Access, schedule your installation, a team member comes out, and in less than an hour you’ll have the smartest, fastest, most secure and most reliable internet available anywhere in Northeast Ohio. The network operations center will be located in Beachwood, so in the unlikely event your connection goes down, they’ll have it fixed before you even notice. If you do have to make a call, you’ll get to talk to a person based in Beachwood, instead of overseas.

“With our internet, you aren’t just paying for a faster connection. You’re also paying for the highest level of security available,” Sean says. “Because we offer a point-to-point connection, Spencer Fi is ultra-secure.”

Sean compares the difference between Spencer Fi and the other internet service providers in Northeast Ohio to buying a Porsche instead of a Chevy. For $99 a month, you’ll get complete home coverage, no matter how large a house you live in. Even if you’re out in the yard or garage, your internet signal will be strong and secure. You can transmit the most secure information through your signal because nobody can gain access—period.

Spencer Fi is still under construction, but Sean invites anyone interested in getting in on the ground floor beta testing to call to sign up. For the time being, he says, Spencer Fi will be available on a limited basis coupled with the company’s secure Wi-Fi installation.

“Our goal is to sign 1,000 people up before the end of the year, but we’re confident we’ll surpass that number much sooner,” Sean insists. “There is a significant need for better internet where customers aren’t bound to contracts or bundling. Our internet has no boundaries, and we’re going to be helping so many people enjoy a better online experience.”
