Vancouver BC –Fi provider, and its subsidiary mobitus are now represented in several major retail chains across Canada through InComm’s ‘FastCard’ pre-paid card sales channels. Initially, the products will be available at the Best Buy, Future Shop, London Drugs and Wireless Wave stores across the country.

The prepaid FatPort cards or ‘FatCodes’ can be used to access FatPort’s network of over 300 FatPort hotspots across Canada. The mobitus codes can be redeemed for Voice-over-IP long distance calling.

"The partnership between InComm and Fatport enables wireless internet capability to be available in retailers across Canada,” said Incomm’s Director of International Sales Brian Parlotto. “We are pleased to combine Fatport's broad-reaching Wi-Fi product with our vast retail distribution. The strength of InComm's category expertise and Fatport's wide footprint makes for a winning proposition to Canadian retailers as well as increased consumer access to this product. Fatport point-of-sale activated cards will be sold starting July 1, 2005 through InComm's retail partners."

“Our agreement with InComm allows us, for the first time, to provide a new channel for the sale of our pre-paid products for both our FatPort and mobitus brands in leading national retail chains across Canada" said Michael Kuhlmann, VP Business Development at FatPort Corporation. "We are looking forward to working with both Incomm as well as the retail partners to bring our customers more choice in how they are able to purchase our services.”
