LightSquared, a nationwide wireless broadband network, announced that it has signed a multi-year wholesale agreement with VoIP provider VoX Communications. VoX is culminating its strategy to add mobile functionality to its existing IP network platform by launching new mobile services and applications, including voice and video, on LightSquared's network.
VoX has also informed that it plans to offer high-speed data and satellite services to its existing and new customers. According to the company, the combination of wholesale economics and business model, open platform, 4G–LTE network and growing device ecosystem is the key reason why VoX chose to partner with LightSquared to deliver its innovative services.
"We've been closely following the rapid increase in mobile VoIP users, and determining how our company could take advantage of this new reality," said Mark Richards, president and chief information officer of VoX. "We believe that the LightSquared network and business model are creating a transformative moment for the industry, and will allow us to expand our portfolio so we can deliver a broad range of affordable and innovative mobile services to our customers."
Sanjiv Ahuja, chairman and CEO of LightSquared, said: "When we think of the types of partners that would benefit from the LightSquared network, VoX Communications comes to mind. VoX is already redefining VoIP performance and services, and we look forward to helping them do the same with a new portfolio of innovative wireless services."
