CHICAGO -- fastmobile, the world's leading mobile instant communications company today announced their membership in the Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) as part of their ongoing commitment to and strategic focus on leading and promoting global industry standards on push to talk.

Bashar Jano, Director of Technology of fastmobile, said: "As we have been operating our fastchat service globally from early in the year, we naturally have a great deal of customer insight to contribute. And as the first commercial product in this sector to provide cross network and cross country push to talk, we have always recognized the value that standards will bring to this new messaging medium and we have long welcomed the interest by the industry to work towards this common goal."

Jano added: "Once agreed, a standard will be good news for mobile users and carriers as they will have many phones available to choose from and gain a greater value from the push to talk feature by being able to speak instantly with friends or colleagues across multiple network platforms."

Jano concluded: "Our participation in the OMA is just one way we're working to ensure that we deliver to our commercial partners both the best possible service and maximum interoperability."

fastmobile, who have recently announced the launch of their fastchat service with Caudwell Group in the UK and American Connections Limited in the US, are now in active dialogues with leading operators and distributors worldwide and are expected to make further deployment announcements shortly.
