Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) May 05, 2014

On Tuesday, May 6th, Republic Wireless CEO David Morken will be featured as the opening keynote speaker at the WifiForward conference to be held at the Newseum in Washington DC. At this event, which explores the growth of technologies operating on unlicensed wireless spectrum, Mr. Morken will highlight how the power of unlicensed spectrum has made it possible for Republic Wireless to deliver high quality smartphone service to customers across the United States at far less than those offered by traditional wireless carriers using licensed cellular spectrum alone.

The first wireless provider to roll out hybrid WiFi/Cellular smartphone service, Republic Wireless began blazing the trail of routing smartphone traffic over unlicensed spectrum in 2011. It delivers better service by leveraging the power of the robust wireless connection that people already have in their homes and businesses, an innovative path only today being contemplated by traditional and untraditional wireless providers alike.

“I am honored to have been selected to serve as the keynote speaker at the WifiForward conference. The distinguished lineup of speakers, along with the high caliber attendees taking part, will make this the event of the year for anyone interested in how WiFi and other unlicensed spectrum-based technologies are changing the way that wireless services are being delivered,” said David Morken, CEO of Republic Wireless. “I am looking forward to sharing the story of how WiFi has allowed Republic Wireless to turn the traditional cellular model on its head, and become a business model industry giants are beginning to follow, albeit almost three years after Republic Wireless first made it a reality.”
