A Lot More for a Lot Less
Got You Covered
Kodiak-powered PTT offers the most advanced instant communications platform, allowing LMR users to access to high-quality voice and mobile broadband data capabilities over nationwide 4G LTE, 4G HSPA+, 3G, and Wi-Fi networks — without the expense or burden of having to own, maintain and carry two separate devices. Now that’s great coverage for a lot less cost.
Reduced fees, unlimited PTT plans, and subsidized handsets – all available with PTT powered by Kodiak Networks. LMR users now have a choice – pay a small fee in addition to an existing voice and data plan, with unlimited PTT or choose a low-cost, fixed-fee PTT-only plan, with unlimited instant calling. Subsidized or free handsets significantly reduce capital expense, with prices ranging from free rugged handsets to low cost, high-end smartphones. In addition to convenient billing options, users can now upgrade devices every two years – either for free or with a nominal fee based on device type –allowing you to stay current with advances in technology and applications.
