BATON ROUGE, La. -- Rancho Cordova, Calif.-based New West Petroleum, operator of 40 truckstop/convenience store locations in California, reached an agreement with Air-Q Wi-Fi Corp., a Wi-Fi (wireless fidelity) Internet access provider, to install one of its Q-Spotz-brand Wi-Fi hotspots in each of New West's retail locations.
New West operates its locations under the company brand name, as well as under the Exxon and Chevron brands. Most of New West's locations are located in and around the greater San Diego area, with a few locations stretching through Central California to Sacramento. Installation of Air-Q's Q-Spotz is scheduled to begin immediately.
"[We are] excited to provide our customers wireless Internet connections provided by Air-Q. Our customers will be able to access the information super-highway while enjoying one of our properties, fine amenities," said Chris Moore, vice president of retail. "Whether filling up on fuel or catching a much needed break at one of our food and beverage locations, New West Petroleum customers can now stay connected throughout California with the installation of Wi-Fi at all of our stations."
David Loflin, AIR-Q's president, said the deal with New West would improve the company's visibility in the technology-savvy California market, where Wi-Fi technology is more heavily used than anywhere else in the country. "Our development partner, Star-Span Wi-Fi, was instrumental in securing this agreement and continues to aggressively pursue similar deals in California and elsewhere," added Loflin.
