Enterprises are frustrated with the high cost of mobile roaming abroad and concerned about the lack of data security and management features. This recognition as a Fierce 15 company validates our mission to bring about change.
NEW YORK, NY (PRWEB) June 12, 2015
Webbing, the most cost-effective and manageable mobile roaming solution for global business today, announced it has been named to the annual FierceWireless “Fierce 15” list as one of the top privately-held wireless companies of the year.
The Fierce 15 represents the 15 most interesting and innovative startups in the wireless industry—companies that have the potential to offer exciting new solutions and change the industry. The complete list of winning companies is available on the FierceWireless Web site at http://www.fiercewireless.com.
FierceWireless, an internationally recognized email newsletter and online publication covering the wireless industry, evaluated numerous privately-held, U.S.-based companies on the basis of their technology, products and services; their business plans and vision; and most of all, on their potential for changing the wireless industry.
According to FierceWireless editor Phil Goldstein, Webbing is Fierce because:
“If you're traveling for business across multiple countries and you need easy access to mobile data, you could hope that it's one of the countries where T-Mobile US or Sprint offers free 2G data roaming. But what if you're not on those carriers, don't want to worry, or just want faster speeds? That's where Webbing comes in. The company's simple solution is aimed at enterprise business travelers looking for international data roaming options.”
“We are honored to be recognized by FierceWireless, one of the most respected news organizations in the wireless industry,” said Yaniv Elron, Webbing co-founder. “At Webbing, we believe the global mobile roaming market is ripe for disruption. Enterprises are frustrated with the high cost of mobile roaming abroad, and concerned about the lack of data security and management from carriers. This recognition validates our mission to bring about change.”
The “Fierce 15” list was announced on June 11 in the FierceWireless daily email newsletter, which reaches 75,000 senior wireless industry executives. The Fierce 15 companies were evaluated and selected by FierceWireless’ team of editors, Sue Marek, Mike Dano, and Phil Goldstein. FierceWireless provides executives in over 100 countries with a quick, authoritative briefing on the day's top wireless stories, including new trends and technologies.
