Share Article

The Telos Network (TTN), a leading Silicon Valley integrated marketing solution provider today announced they have entered into a strategic partnership with 4G Metro, LLC of Granbury, Texas, a supplier of WiFi metropolitan-scale wireless service offerings. As exclusive providers, they will install Internet access and a digital sign network in the Trinity Railway Express (TRE) rail cars, and interactive kiosks in major route train stations. The TRE is a commuter rail line, jointly owned by the Fort Worth and Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART), operating between Dallas and Fort Worth. The Telos Network has on-board and train station programming responsibility for news, weather, sports, special events, promotional, entertainment, and advertising. 4G Metro will install the full range of hardware required for the mobile and fixed wireless broadband network throughout the Dallas metroplex.

    Robert (Bob) Douglas, TTN's President and CEO said, "We're excited about our partnership with 4G Metro and the opportunity to be named the content provider for the mobile wireless network. Our multi-year agreement offers certain brands sponsorship and advertising exclusivity in specified areas, and space will be available for any paying program sponsors desiring spot-branding. An initial trial or pilot phase on some cars is expected to commence by February 2008."

Kenneth Barr, a Fort Worth visionary and former mayor of the city of Fort Worth (1997-2003) said, "I am currently working with a group to promote and bring together the region where the trains will operate. By region I'm referring to the counties in North Central Texas surrounding Fort Worth and Dallas that approximates some 6 million people, making it about the 25th largest economy in the world. We also believe this population could double within the next 20-25 years. The Trinity Railway Express trains are an integral part of our growth plan. They help remove personal vehicles off our already congested freeways, and by installing the wireless services you're planning, you provide an inducement to ride them and significantly improve the quality and experience of that ride."
