About us

We’re wireless network designers and marine electronics technicians; we’re WiFi system engineers and we’re proven successful business people, but most importantly — we’re boaters and we have been for years.

onSpot is aware of what it’s like to be tied up at a marina with no internet when needing to contact family, trying to take care of business, or just wanting to stream a good movie.

We’ve been there — that’s why we started this company.

Understanding marinas and boaters is at the heart of everything we do.

Where we came from

Taylor Communications Inc. (Taycom) was founded in 1994 as a provider of computer systems and services to Fortune 500 companies internationally and currently employees more than sixty technical employees nationally.

onSpot wifi was created as a division of Taycom to focus specifically on marina clients, providing them with the real solutions for their unique wireless internet needs.

In 2005, because of our love of boating, onSpot began installing wireless hotspots at remote marinas across Tennessee, Mississippi and Alabama.

Sometimes necessity creates opportunity and in 2008 onSpot found it necessary to sort out a solution to bring communications and internet to small remote islands in the Bahamas. Compass Cay was our first and still our favorite installation. onSpot added more islands in the Exumas and we’re still growing.

In 2013, onSpot redefined marina WiFi hotspots and added more marinas in Florida to our list of partner marinas.

In 2014, constantly improving, onSpot wifi designed, invented, and became Better Marina WiFi . onSpot’s list of partner marinas in Florida doubled in size.

2016: Slowly but surely, onSpot wifi has become the preferred Marina WiFi Provider for Florida and the East Coast of the United States.

From Tampa Bay to Chesapeake Bay, from Key West to Nantucket, our marinas are enjoying their state of the art high speed internet systems. And, along with our support, they’ve never been this fast and reliable.

At a modest and manageable pace, we’re still growing.

What we believe

We believe that our most effective services are rooted in genuine customer insight and empathy; we serve at the pleasure of our customers. Understanding marinas and boaters is at the heart of everything we do.

Really, we mean it.

onSpot wifi is and through continuous improvement will remain… Better Marina WiFi.

Your service is the best I've ever experienced in any marina.

I have been in a number of marinas that offer wifi and have found them lacking in reliable connections and strong signals. I have been a customer at loggerhead marina in Hollywood fl for over a year and the service since they began using your service is the best I've ever experienced in any marina. My wife and I try to spend winters in the Bahamas then return to a different area and stay for a year or so. After seeing what your company can do with wifi, we will always stay at marinas that offer your service.
On a personal note, I would like to thank Carl for spending a great deal of time and I'm sure patience with me as I was trying to set up a new antenna. He went way beyond what I ever would have expected him to do. His commitment to providing top notch service is worthy of note and most appreciated.
