BandwidthX’s marketplace connects Wi-Fi capacity between its customers

BandwidthX has been named to the annual FierceWireless “Fierce 15” list, designating it as one of the top privately-held wireless companies of the year.

BandwidthX announced today that it has been named to the annual FierceWireless “Fierce 15” list, designating it as one of the top privately-held wireless companies of the year. FierceWireless editors evaluated hundreds of organizations, and found BandwidthX to be one of the most “fierce” startups in the wireless industry in 2014, and that the company has strong potential to grow in the years ahead.

FierceWireless, an internationally recognized daily email newsletter reaching more than 80,000 senior wireless industry executives, provides executives in over 100 countries with a quick, authoritative briefing on the day's top wireless stories, including new trends and technologies.

BandwidthX has developed - and is operating - Bandwidth Market, a cloud-based service that enables Wi-Fi access and roaming commerce. The business-to-business solution enables Mobile Operators to precisely meet data demand growth by buying unused Wi-Fi capacity from Wi-Fi and Internet Service Providers.

“BandwidthX serves as a cloud-based marketplace that connects mobile operators who want Wi-Fi connections with the network operators that have capacity,” said Phil Goldstein, Editor of FierceWireless. “The company’s technology serves as a marketplace for customers to utilize Wi-Fi networks. As Wi-Fi becomes faster and more pervasive, BandwidthX’s service is bound to increase in relevance.”

“We are very excited to have been selected as a ‘Fierce 15’ company by FierceWireless, one of the leading wireless news providers. It is a honor to be recognized by such a well-regarded news outlet,” says Pertti Visuri, CEO of BandwidthX. “At BandwidthX we focus on creating value for everybody in the industry by enabling use of Wi-Fi capacity and sharing the value that's created in a fair way between the parties that have capacity and the ones that put it to use.”

The FierceWireless “Fierce 15” celebrates the spirit of being “fierce,” championing innovation and creativity, even in the face of intense competition. The complete list of winning companies is available on the FierceWireless Web site at
