Cricket Communications, Inc. Selects Devicescape for Wi-Fi Offload

SAN BRUNO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 17, 2013) -  Devicescape today announced that Cricket Communications, Inc., a nationwide no-contract wireless provider, has deployed Devicescape's Curator Service to provide offload services and capacity-reach. Cricket customers now have access to the fast growing Devicescape Curated Virtual Network (CVN) of over 16 million high-quality Wi-Fi hotspots and intelligent connection software to provide seamless and automatic connectivity to Wi-Fi.

The Devicescape Curator Service will allow Cricket customers to gain simple and immediate access to Devicescape's CVN of public Wi-Fi hotspots, which are continuously tested in real-time to ensure they meet Cricket's requirements for a quality experience. Devicescape's Curator Client, working together with the cloud-based Curator Service Platform, identifies the best available connection and proactively connects, including auto-navigation of click through portals. 

"Cricket is demonstrating their continued commitment to innovation and enhancement of the user experience," said Dave Fraser, CEO of Devicescape. "By extending Cricket's network though using our massive CVN, Cricket will realize many benefits, including increased customer satisfaction." 

The rising cost of mobile data use continues to concern end-users and mobile operators alike, driving operators to investigate solutions that help manage data transmission costs and improve the mobile experience. The pervasive availability of amenity Wi-Fi and Devicescape's curation technology allows the Curator Service to deliver industry leading incremental offload rates from 15 to 50% over and above normal Wi-Fi home and office usage.
