Sprint has signed up Elevate partners for new MVNO and will provide voice and data services to consumers and businesses as well as the latest Android and Windows-based devices to over 274 million consumers on both a prepaid and postpaid service basis.

 

Sprint appears to be in a growth period with it resigning and bringing new business to its network. I'm sure Hesse is happy with the new revenue streams although we may feel it short term with the additional traffic on the network. I'm hoping with these compaines bringing revenue, Sprint wil lay off nickel and diming we the consumer.

Elevate Partners with Sprint to Offer Nationwide Mobile Telephone Service and Best in Class Devices

 

SAN CLEMENTE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Elevate, Inc. (OTCBB:ELEV) today announced an agreement with Sprint Nextel Corporation whereby Elevate will sell mobile voice and data services to consumers and businesses using the Nationwide Sprint Network.

 

Elevate’s MVNO agreement, which was executed at the end of December, will enable the Company to provide mobile network connectivity and the latest Android and Windows-based devices to over 274 million consumers on both a prepaid and postpaid service basis.

“We’re excited to offer our customers exclusive Elevate rate plans, reliable coverage and innovative products through our new relationship with Sprint,” says Wright Thurston, Elevate CEO. “This contract makes it possible for us to bundle Elevate branded mobile voice and data connectivity with our other digital services in such a way as to offer additional savings off our already competitive Stack service plans.”

As a digital services integrator, Elevate is able to provide comprehensive service ‘Stacks,’ or product packages that are customized based on a consumer’s particular needs. Unlike other popular bundled offerings, the component services in an Elevate Stack aren’t exclusive to any single delivery network or partner provider. In other words, Elevate customers can save even more on their home automation, digital television, wireless broadband Internet, and digital telephone services by signing up for Elevate mobile.

In addition to rounding out the Company’s digital services offering, the Sprint contract also provides a key benefit to current Elevate home automation subscribers. Through Elevate’s mobile application, Smart Home customers can access their security and monitoring systems, they can view recorded and live video feeds; arm and disarm door and window sensors; lock, unlock and open access points like windows, doors and garage doors; and view intruder or status alerts.

Rod Place, Elevate COO, explains, “Our mobile application and in-home technology give our customers a lot of control over their homes, even when they are not in them. That control, however, is subject to the quality and consistency of the network over which the application communicates. Sprint’s network is massive, reliable and affordable. It makes our Smart Home product that much better.”

Velocity Internet, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Elevate, Inc. is the contracting party

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
