WOODLAND HILLS, Calif. -- NetZero Wireless, Inc., a subsidiary of United Online, Inc. (NASDAQ: UNTD), announced today that NetZero Mobile Broadband has launched across Sprintís 3G wireless network and is now available to customers nationwide. In July of 2013, the company signed a five-year agreement with Sprint to offer the NetZero Mobile Broadband service via Sprintís nationwide 3G network, and ultimately via Sprintís 4G LTE network. The company plans to expand across Sprintís 4G LTE network sometime in the third quarter of this year.
ďExpanding the availability of our mobile broadband service over the Sprint network gives us a much more robust presence nationally, allowing us to offer coverage to millions of additional customers,Ē said Rusty Taragan, President of NetZero Wireless. ďThere have always been a lot of great reasons to use NetZero Mobile Broadband and this expanded coverage adds another to the list. We launched our NetZero Mobile Broadband service in 2012 with a variety of value-priced monthly plans that did not require contracts or commitments and gave our customers the ability to change their plan at any time. And now, along with all those great features, we are able to serve customers in additional areas of the country that are covered by Sprintís 3G network. This new coverage expands our NetZero Mobile Broadband coverage to more than 276 million people.Ē
