T.J. Mitchell, Central Baptist Church:
"The church that I work for is a customer of NetroMedia for our live streaming services. Although Patrick is my account rep, I have recently been speaking with Darren. I began speaking with Darren after calling to get some help from Patrick (he was unavailable). Darren could have easily told me to leave a voice mail with Patrick, but he took the time to not only help me with that current issue, but then followed up with me afterwards. The problem wasn't completely fixed, but Darren continued to help me through it step by step. We are still having a few issues (on our end), but I am confident that with Darren's help, it will be resolved. I asked him for your email because I wanted you to know what a joy and relief he has been to me in a time when most companies and reps are quick to get you off the phone and to the next caller. Darren has been such a help! Thanks."

A quick note to thank you for your kind service in helping us explore our video streaming options. I would also like to express my appreciation for Darren from the Tech Department who has been most helpful in working through some unique technical issues we're dealing with. Due to problems with streaming to some rented meeting space, Darren is putting together special code to help us resolve connectivity challenges. I very much appreciate your courteous and helpful service."

Haskell Mayes, General Manager of KITG Radio:
"Seldom in my business experiences have I come across a company who ranks customer support and service as highly as NetroMedia. It is truly refreshing to observe the care you must take in selecting your technicians and sales people. Your response time is virtually unheard of in this day and age. I have yet to call and be placed on hold for any period of time, and email responses are almost immediate.
After working with several other streaming providers, none of whom I could contact by phone, and sometimes wait for days for an email response, I began to search for a provider who had my best interest at heart. Scanning the internet I looked for a company with a phone number attached to their advertisements. Very few were found.
After finding your web site, phone number included, I called and talked to Darren from the Tech Department, it turned out to be a very good experience for me. Darren, who actually is a person, and not a recorded voice, was pleasant to work with in every way. He was polite and knowledgeable in your product and with a variety of products that work with your service as well. Speaking with him this one time, I was persuaded to work with NetroMedia.
Since that time I have spoken with other technicians at NetroMedia. Just yesterday I spoke with William. Again, another extremely polite, patient, and knowledgable tech. He assisted me in setting up our stream through NetroMedia. Will also was truly knowledgable in the various streaming software programs. His assistance was invaluable."

David Clark, Clark Athletic Communications:
"I was teaching at the local high school and saw a need to broadcast the coming football season online. By not having any internet streaming experience and not being a heavy internet technology person, I was shaky about undertaking this project. After researching several streaming providers, I felt very comfortable talking to Patrick from NetroMedia. He made me realize that my project could be accomplished without me going crazy.
When it came time to setup the actual stream, Darren in the Tech Department was a tremendous asset in walking me through the setup procedures, and assisting my web hosting company with the links necessary to put on my webpage. These two (2) individuals made a nightmare project a sweet dream.
I strongly recommend NetroMedia for internet streaming whether for the professional broadcaster or for an amateur like myself. When professional results are needed and handholding for a novice is important, NetroMedia is the only way to stream. The company is great because of personnel like Patrick Wickstrom and Darren Shaw.
Thanks for true CUSTOMER SERVICE which is very difficult to find in today's market."

Samuel Eng, CEO and Co-Founder of Primetime Radio, INC:
"For the last few years, I was discouraged and dissatisfied with the lack of customer service of other streaming providers.
With a major deadline to meet, a NetroMedia representative was kind enough to respond to many questions I had in the middle of the night. Soon after, Patrick called me the next morning to follow up the conversation and offered help in finding what type of service we needed. It was Patrick’s patience and understanding that made NetroMedia an easy choice as a streaming provider.
What struck me about NetroMedia is their commitment to the customer’s needs. Whether it was Darren’s expertise from technical support or Che taking the time out to meet with you and understand how they can assist your business, NetroMedia is really more of a partner rather than just a streaming provider. I am very demanding and expect first class service. That is why I am pleased with our relationship between our companies moving forward. Moreover, I am confident that anyone that does business with NetroMedia will feel the same."

Simon Pogrebinsky, President of Russian Bostonian LLC:
"I am writing to express my deep satisfaction with the services provided by NetroMedia, and especially Patrick. Even in these days of weak economy it is unfortunately not easy to find the service you need with acceptable quality/price ratio.
I was pleasantly surprised after the very first conversation with Patrick. Not too many companies pick up the phone on Sundays and I bet no one does it at 5.30 am. Patrick is not good - but damn good on all counts: The way he greets the callers, listens to customer's needs, offers appropriate service and a variety of options to choose from, provides tech support etc.
At the end of the first day the service we were looking for a long time (Flash Audio Streaming) was up and running. Thanks very much Patrick, you are doing an excellent job."

Any issues I've encountered over the years have been dealt with in the most professional of standards, thanks to a hard-working committed work force, which you quickly get to know on a first-name basis.
From sales to tech to upper-management: NetroMedia is the provider of providers. They've helped make my broadcasting dreams reality."

"Alliance Films encounters numerous online companies on a daily basis as we strive to secure services that match our mandate for excellence in our interactive platforms. For the past four years, Netromedia has been a valuable media partner and asset for Alliance Films' video streaming and hosting solutions. I would not hesitate to recommend Netromedia to anyone who needs a rock-solid video streaming service and a crew that excels in providing worry-free solutions without sacrificing the human element that is missing with many companies.
As our NetroMedia project manager, Jim Piper has been outstanding. His direct and courteous manner, knowledge in all areas of online services, and his willingness to take immediate action to accommodate our marketing needs sets Jim apart as leading industry professional."

Sharon Lee-Moran, Co-Owner of WYAM Jamm Chicago:
"We have found Jim's personal direction and industry knowledge to be critical to our success. I have had experience with other stream host providers, but none have been as reliable as Netromedia. Not only that, but I can call with any questions or problems and Darren always provides above average customer service. He provides fantastic customer support.
I would recommend that anyone entertaining the idea of starting their own Internet radio station should use Netromedia as their stream host provider. Above all, Netromedia's reliability gives it the competitive edge."

John Beaudin, President of Smooth Jazz Now:
"I want to personally take a moment to thank NetroMedia so much for the great service. It is rare to have an account manager like Jim who cares about the client's long term goals. Thanks to your team, streaming my station went smoothly.
I want to also signal out Darren, from your tech department, for his understanding and patience. What a wonderful man to work with. In my 30 years in broadcasting I've dealt with tons of tech-types that just made everything more difficult - but Darren has this ability to put himself in the customers situation. That is rare. I'm really enjoying working with NetroMedia."
