GST becomes preferred telecommunications provider at Maui Research and Technology Park.
"GST is proud to partner with the Maui Research and Technology Park to provide telecommunications solutions to some of the state's premier high-tech companies," said Rob Volker, vice president and general manager of GST Telecom Hawaii, Inc. "This is just one of the many benefits of open competition in Hawaii's telecommunications market."
"Our partnership with GST Telecom Hawaii will enable Maui Research and Technology to provide the most advanced telecommunications capabilities and services to current and future tenants," said Brett Klyver, director of development for the Maui Research and Technology Park. The research center is home to the Maui High Performance Computing Center, one of the largest and most powerful computing facilities in the world.
Under the agreement, GST Telecom Hawaii will be the "preferred provider" of telecommunications services for the park, including the new 60,000-square-foot Maui Corporate Center. Other telecommunications companies may provide service to the center, however MRTP officials will work first with GST to develop the most beneficial telecommunications products and services package to meet tenants' needs. Prior to the signing of this agreement, GTE Hawaiian Tel had been the telecommunications provider for MRTP.
"GST has demonstrated its willingness to work with us to develop innovative telecommunications solutions for our expanding tenant base," said Klyver. "GST brings with it the telecommunications technology and expertise to create new opportunities for Maui businesses as well as attract new high-tech ventures to the Islands." GST will install fiber optic telecommunications lines and other advanced telecommunications infrastructure that will link the park with business centers throughout the Pacific.
GST Telecommunications, Inc., currently operates networks in fourteen cities in the western United States and Hawaii, with additional networks under construction in six cities in the San Francisco Bay area. The company provides a broad range of integrated telecommunications products and services, through the development and operation of competitive access and other telecommunications networks.
