Angie Communications Partners with iPass for Global Wi-Fi Connectivity
Angie to utilize iPass SDK to integrate the world’s largest Wi-Fi network into Triple Play offering
Maarsbergen, Netherlands – June 22, 2016 – Angie Communications International B.V., a new entrant to the telecoms market and the world's largest telecoms startup, today announced a partnership with iPass, the leading provider of global mobile connectivity, to deliver secure global Wi-Fi connectivity to its customers by integrating the iPass SmartConnect SDK into its platform under its Angie HotSpots brand.
In the coming months, Angie will start rolling out its proprietary large scale next-generation wireless networks in Europe and the USA, delivering Gigabit connectivity directly to end users under its Wireless Extreme brand. Angie, which will also be offering other innovative services, including Wi-Fi calling and over-the-top IPTV services, will initially launch its own Gigabit Wireless Extreme service in Rotterdam and Amsterdam in the Netherlands, after which it will expand its service to London (UK), Los Angeles and New York City (USA). Angie will offer customers bundled access to the secure iPass global Wi-Fi network as part of its product range. This offering will supplement Angie’s communications infrastructure, anchored on optical fiber, which the firm either directly owns or leases from -or builds in cooperation with- some of the world's largest fiber network operators. In aggregate, Angie will connect its users to multi-(ten) terabit pipes.
“We are thrilled to be part of Angie Communications’ launch offering and to be part of this new triple play by providing access to our global Wi-Fi network,” said Mato Petrusic, vice president, EMEA and APAC, at iPass. “It’s great that we are able to partner with this innovative organization and can empower the Angie Communications value proposition by providing its customers with access to the largest Wi-Fi network in the world.”
“iPass provides us with the opportunity to offer our customers global connectivity beyond our own coverage areas,” said Neal Lachman, Angie Communications’ Group CEO. “Its network is second to none, and our customers can rest assured that the connection is secure, reliable and uncapped. By utilizing the iPass SDK, we will be able to provide our customers with a seamless experience regardless of where they are connecting.”
