If internet connectivity is lost without backup, it negatively impacts the operations of a laundry business and causes stress for the owner. CCI’s Cellular service helps safeguard laundromats from Internet disruptions and allows business to continue as usual when outages do occur. Cellular Backup is a low cost, peace of mind option for FasCard locations looking for maximum ‘uptime’ and to ensure there is continuity of service in the case of Internet connection failure. With Cellular Backup, the system automatically fails over to cellular connection when primary Internet fails and your laundromat customers never notice an interruption in service. The system will automatically fall back to primary service once Internet is restored. The cost for the Cellular Backup Plan is $15.00 per month and up to 48 hours of service per month may be used. The service activates automatically when an outage of the primary Internet connection is detected.
