Pronto Networks enhances Wi-Fi based service delivery platform with iPod & iPhone specific services

Pleasanton, Sep 28, 2009: Cogeco Data Services (CDS) partners with Pronto Networks to offer WiFi connectivity to its OneZone Network customers in Toronto, Canada. CDS has now expanded its service offering to include iPod and iPhone specific service plans that offer a premium customer experience much richer than just browser-based access.

“An increasing number of mobile devices are now WiFi enabled. A large segment of our customers who use such devices demand a grade of service that gives them greater mobility. Leveraging the capabilities in the Pronto Managed Services Platform, Cogeco iPod/iPhone customers can now subscribe to a higher bandwidth service plan that is enabled only on their mobile devices,” shares Virginia Brailey, VP Marketing, CDS.

Jasbir Singh, CEO, Pronto Networks, says, “We are happy to note that the launch of CDS’ iPod and iPhone support coincides with the first anniversary of the Pronto-CDS partnership.
