Elevate signs deal with Sprint to offer 4G WiMAX mobile broadband

Telecom Lead America: Elevate has signed new MVNO
agreement with Sprint to include access to Sprint’s 4G WiMAX wireless network.

The 4G WiMAX amendments will allow Elevate to expand its
services to include fixed and mobile broadband delivery, enhancing Elevate’s
suite of services for 120 million consumers in 71 markets across the U.S.

With Sprint’s 4G (WiMAX) infrastructure behind us, we
are the only company able to sell every product in our Stack – voice, video,
data, and home automation – to virtually every major population center in the
country, with or without a phone line,” said Wright Thurston, Elevate

A key component of the original agreement is Elevate’s
ability to offer services on both a prepaid and postpaid basis, a feature that
will extend into 4G (WiMAX) fixed and mobile broadband services as well.

“Prepaid plans are popular among consumers who are
looking for a specific value or service. Elevate customer loyalty is a function
of our personal delivery model and stable infrastructure, not our long-term
contracts. Our customers stay with us because we create relationships with them
that constantly provide value,” said Bryan Ferre, Elevate CMO.
