2021: The Year in Signal

When 2021 started, we were all still in pretty heavy lockdown, and for good reason. It’s been the policy of this blog not to dwell on COVID-19 and its effects, but it’s been the story of the year two years running. It’s getting pretty hard to ignore.

At the start of 2021, much of our staff was working from home, and yet we continued to grow and serve our customers. The year only got better from there.

Supply chain issues? What supply chain issues?

Folks, we have the best purchasing staff in the business. They prove it every day. They never proved it more than in 2021. While other sites struggled with stock issues and shelves remained empty, SolidSignal.com continued to offer the best products to help you make your digital dreams come true. When other satellite companies couldn’t get you an H24 or Wally, we could. And we did. 2021 has been the best year for satellite that the company has ever had.

I can say the same thing for our stock of antennas and other things that came from overseas. Though hard work and a lot of smart deals, we made sure our overseas vendors never disappointed. It’s been a huge year for Solid Signal, and it all started because we had the stock we wanted.

Enter VSAT

VSAT was the big word of the year for us. (Not familiar? Here’s an explainer.) Forget about everything you thought you knew about marine internet… the folks at Signal Connect have created a new, faster, smarter way to stay online even up to 100 miles offshore. We’ve been working with partners for years on this opportunity, and we finally rolled it out in 2021. If you’re looking for satellite-based internet while you’re on the water, you owe it yourself to call us at 888-233-7534.

Signal Connect’s coming out party

Signal Connect, the commercial and activation arm of Solid Signal, has been around for over a decade. In 2021, though, that team really took center stage. They debuted at the influential Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show, wowing attendees with a suite of services perfectly matched to the yacht-loving crowd.

You can expect more of this from Signal Connect in ’22, as we keep offering the top-notch service that our marine and RV customers ask for.

More, more, more — how do you like it?

The biggest news inside the company is that we continue to grow and bring new folks into the family. That growing group of professionals needs space, though, and that’s why we’ve expanded our Novi, Michigan corporate offices to accommodate even more people! We have the best employees in the business and now they have the best workplace to come to every day!

So much to look forward to

SolidSignal.com debuted in late 2002, and that means 2022 is our 20th year in business. Throughout the year, we’ll be showing our appreciation in every way we can think of. Stay tuned for our next two decades… they are sure to be impressive!

That’s about it for ’21, though… let’s all raise a glass to a happier and healthier ’22.
