Pocket Communications selects ClearSky Mobile Media as new content provider; Cites broad range of data offerings and user-friendly platform.
ClearSky Mobile Media, Inc., a leading provider of mobile data and entertainment services, announces today that they have signed a multi-year agreement with Pocket Communications to provide managed mobile data and entertainment services to Pocket Communications subscribers. Pocket Communications is a rapidly growing local carrier, offering flat-rate, pre-paid, mobile phone service in the San Antonio and Laredo, Texas areas.
The terms of the agreement include ClearSky Mobile Media’s WAP Gateway services, ProPortal, ProVantage, ProVision, and ClearBill. Additionally, Pocket Communications is using ClearSky’s product line to deliver a broad array of downloadable mobile entertainment content such as ringtones, games and images.
“ClearSky Mobile Media is thrilled to be working with such a visionary operator, focused on servicing the local communities,” says Dean Fresonke , CEO of ClearSky Mobile Media. “It’s delightful to work with an operator that concentrates on excellent customer service in a very price competitive model, while offering the best network experience and bringing unique content to their subscribers. This is a key factor that is helping them become a dominant player in their local markets and aggressively build their local subscriber base.”
Launched in May 2006, Pocket Communications is quickly taking over the market-share of larger carriers in the communities of San Antonio and Laredo. With the company’s primary focus on offering the most competitive rates with the best services, Pocket Communication’s offering includes a pre-paid, flat rate plan with an optional data service plan or a pay-per-use plan that allows the consumer to purchase data as needed.
With a proven track record of tailoring services specific to the local communities, ClearSky Mobile Media’s vast range of content — including content aimed at the Hispanic market — was a key factor in the decision to select ClearSky Mobile as the provider of Pocket’s content.
“Our business philosophy is built on offering the best service to our customers in San Antonio and Laredo,” says Amir Rajwany, Executive VP and CTO of Pocket Communications. “ClearSky Mobile Media’s mobile data and entertainment offerings are very appealing and coupled with the ease of implementing their platform into our service structure, made them a good choice as a mobile media partner.”
