WOODLAND HILLS, Calif. -- NetZero Wireless, Inc., a subsidiary of United Online, Inc. (NASDAQ: UNTD), announced today that NetZero Mobile Broadband has launched across Sprint’s 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 Sprint’s nationwide 3G network, and ultimately via Sprint’s 4G LTE network. The company plans to expand across Sprint’s 4G LTE network sometime in the third quarter of this year.

“Expanding 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,” said Rusty Taragan, President of NetZero Wireless. “There 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 Sprint’s 3G network. This new coverage expands our NetZero Mobile Broadband coverage to more than 276 million people.”

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
