AirNet's Customers Continue Their Expansions
MELBOURNE, Fla. --AirNet Communications Corporation (Nasdaq:ANCC) today announced that growth and expansion orders continue. Recent orders totaling $1.5M have been received from existing customers, including AirLink PCS and Wireless 2000, who see demand growing and remain convinced that AirNet's GSM technology is the best way to support demand for wireless voice and high-speed data services quickly and economically.
Bob Fisher, President of AirLink PCS, said, "Our marketing programs continue to deliver results, and that means demand for capacity is growing. Our recent orders for the Triple Capacity AirSite® Backhaul Free Base Stations give us that capacity and still provides the cost advantage of avoiding recurring T1 backhaul charges." Lee Hamilton, AirNet's CEO, added, "Our technology migration strategy allows carriers to start by supporting a few subscribers very economically and then scaling up to our high capacity solutions."
Tommy Ward, President of Wireless 2000, commented on a different mode of growth saying, "AirNet's backhaul free base stations allow us to serve areas that simply could not be supported economically with any other system allowing us to dramatically expand the area we can serve. This approach adds a dimension to our business plan that gives us a strong competitive advantage that we're successfully developing."
Glenn Ehley, AirNet's Sr. Vice President of Sales & Marketing, stated, "We receive a lot of satisfaction from our customers" success and take great pride in their confidence in us exhibited by the repeat orders."
