"With Starbucks's recent partnership announcement with Google to offer high-speed WiFi service to over 7,000 locations around the nation, we strongly believe that they could complement their WiFi service by deploying cognitive radio TV band devices across the white space spectrum to extend their offering to larger geographic areas," said Alex Besen, Founder and CEO of The Besen Group LLC. "The presentation will focus on key benefits for retailers to launch MVNOs and explore license and unlicensed spectrum options for Starbucks to become a potential MVNO."

Mr. Besen has over 18 years of hands-on experience from the mobile industry working with mobile network operators in developing their wholesale business models, advising MVNOs to launch their mobile and mobile data services as well as helping MVNEs with their service portfolios.
