Flat Wireless, LLC Joins NetAmerica Alliance
NetAmerica Alliance, LLC today announced that Flat Wireless, LLC (dba ClearTalk Wireless) has joined the NetAmerica Alliance. ClearTalk is headquartered in Lubbock, Texas, and is building a 4G LTE network initially consisting of 65 sites in the combined cities of Amarillo, Lubbock, San Angelo, Abilene, Midland, Odessa and Wichita Falls Texas, as well as in El Centro, California, Yuma, Arizona and Clovis, New Mexico.
ClearTalk Wireless undertook an extensive and demanding RFP (request for proposal) process in their search for a 4G LTE core network solution. That solution had to be able to stand up to their rigorous operational demands and they wanted it delivered by a partner with proven 4G LTE commercial experience.
"Our selection process for an LTE deployment partner was rigorous and extensive," said Kevin Beierschmitt, President and CEO of Flat Wireless, LLC. "NetAmerica not only passed the technical challenges, but also provided a uniquely-complete solution, allowing us to focus on delivering high-quality service to our customers."
ClearTalk operates as a wireless telecommunications carrier in the southeastern California, southwestern Arizona, eastern New Mexico and western Texas regions of the United States. With an extensive 3G network already in place, ClearTalk recognizes the growing consumer demand for mobile data. The addition of a 4G LTE network is the next step for the company who continues to be the best value in wireless for families. ClearTalk intends to keep that core promise to customers by remaining the low-cost leader, now operating a 4G LTE network. As a Member of the Alliance, NetAmerica will provide ClearTalk Wireless with a hosted 4G LTE core solution including all the operational tools needed to deliver high-quality service 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
ClearTalk Wireless has deep roots when it comes to taking care of families. Customers know ClearTalk for their commitment to saving customers time and money by making wireless service uncomplicated and straightforward with flat-rate, no-contract, nationwide, unlimited plans.
Additionally, ClearTalk is proving itself a staunch consumer advocate, working for fairness in wireless service. They are leading the way as a Flashing service provider, making it possible for customers to choose the service they want on the handset of their choice.
"NetAmerica is very pleased to welcome Flat Wireless to the NetAmerica Alliance," said Roger Hutton, Chairman and CEO of NetAmerica. "With our solution, ClearTalk Wireless is able to concentrate on building out its 4G Radio Access Network (RAN) and delivering quality service to its customers. That allows capital and operational dollars to be spent on the portion of the network closest to the customer, where it can have the greatest impact on driving revenue."
NetAmerica's solution (currently being used by all Alliance Members) includes the operational tools needed to provision service, monitor, and measure performance from the RAN deep into the core and does so by placing a private secure portal into the hands of each Member so they have complete control over their own service delivery. The operational support system delivers key indicators on network health and performance in both graphical and report format, thereby turning data into information.
