DALLAS, 2012-01-31 00:41 CET (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Quamtel’s subsidiary, DataJack, Inc (OTCBB:QUMI), and Prouty Company LLC announced today a long-term, comprehensive distribution agreement that will deliver nationwide Mobile Broadband services powered by DataJack through ProutyCo’s extensive network of over 100,000 carriers, service providers, strategic partners and retail locations across the U.S.
Under the agreement, DataJack will provide the following services through its mobile broadband platform: order processing, automated activation, usage tracking and notifications, device acquisition, custom branding, inventory management, logistics, fulfillment and second tier technical customer support.
“We worked hard over the past several months to reach an amicable agreement with Quamtel which would afford ProutyCo exclusivity in the retail distribution sector. We thoroughly tested Quamtel’s activation platform via their Web and retail point-of-sale API, activated production devices, distributed them throughout our network, and successfully completed real-world testing under various actual and simulated conditions. Now that our contract has been fully executed and demand for wireless broadband service has been stimulated within our network, we feel that our initial goal of 100,000 subscribers will be easily surpassed within our original timeframe, and anticipate placing our first substantial equipment order the first week of February,” stated Phil Prouty, CEO, of ProutyCo.
