BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich., May 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Recognizing the
importance of connectivity to retailing success, Taubman, through its
preferred vendor, Single Digits, will offer free basic Internet access to all
tenants in 20 of the regional and super regional malls it manages across the
United States. Beginning this summer, a business-class T1 equivalent service
will be offered free of charge to tenants - - large or small - - leasing space
in Taubman owned and managed properties, the most productive in the publicly
held U.S. regional mall industry.

"We know that the best retailers are pursuing omni-channel customer engagement
strategies," said Taubman Chief Technology Officer Michael Osment, "and that
requires fast, secure Internet access to execute both customer-facing programs
and back-of-the-store operations."

Over the last several years, major mall operators, including Taubman, have
offered a range of digital services to tenants and shoppers in their
properties, including free consumer Wi Fi. But this is the first time tenants
have been offered Business Class Internet access free of charge. "Being the
first in our industry to provide access to this service for free at nearly all
of our shopping centers is consistent with our historic commitment to maximize
the productivity and shopper appeal of our retailers' brick and mortar
assets."

Osment estimates that this new offering will reduce costs for tenants using
the service by approximately $100 to $200 per month. This makes it possible
for even the smallest tenants in kiosks or temporary inline space to connect
efficiently with their customers. Retailers requiring even faster speeds will
be able to upgrade at discounted rates through Single Digits, a leading
high-speed Internet service management and support company. "We have a
fiber-optic infrastructure in place to meet or exceed whatever level of
service our retailers require," said Osment.
