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.

Choice Savings

Reduced fees, unlimited PTT plans, and subsidized handsets – all available with PTT powered by Kodiak Networks.

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.
