RESTON, VA – August 30, 2011 – LightSquared™, the nation’s first wholesale-only integrated 4G-LTE wireless broadband and satellite network, and Simplexity MVNO Services, a wholly owned subsidiary of leading wireless solutions provider Simplexity, today announced that they have entered into a multi-year wholesale agreement. Simplexity MVNO Services is a fully integrated Mobile Virtual Network Enabler (MVNE) which provides end-to-end and customized solutions for Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs).
Under this agreement, Simplexity MVNO Services will become a wholesale customer on LightSquared’s 4G-LTE network and will provide voice and high-speed mobile data services that are private branded for its partners that include retailers, e-tailers, OEMs, marketing organizations and affinity groups, as well as other organizations seeking to provide customized wireless solutions to their customers. This agreement represents a major step towards making the latest generation of mobile services available to Simplexity’s constantly growing partner base throughout the United States.
“In addition to the MVNE services we offer to new and existing MVNOs, our agreement with LightSquared will allow Simplexity MVNO Services to provide turnkey, private branded wireless offerings on LightSquared’s 4G-LTE network. Our operational scale and experience will give our partner companies the ability to provide customized wireless offerings to their customers at a fraction of the time and cost normally required to launch a full scale MVNO,” said Terry Hsu, president of Simplexity MVNO Services. “We look forward to utilizing LightSquared’s nationwide network and wholesale business model to enable businesses and organizations of all shapes and sizes to offer wireless solutions tailored to their customers’ needs.”
