If this project gets traction, the potential of this strategic direction to foster further growth could conceivably be a game changer for the company, a fact on display in recent action in the stock.
Airborne Wireless Network (OTCMKTS:ABWN) trumpets itself as a company that focuses on developing, marketing, and licensing a wholesale fully-meshed high-speed broadband airborne wireless network.
This network will enable participating aircraft to act as airborne repeaters or routers, sending and receiving broadband signals from one aircraft to the next creating a digital superhighway in the sky. The company is involved in developing Infinitus, an airborne broadband network providing connectivity for worldwide broadband carrier services using commercial aircraft. It intends to sell wholesale bandwidth to the telecom and Internet service providers.
The company was formerly known as Ample-Tee, Inc. and changed its name to Airborne Wireless Network in May 2016. Airborne Wireless Network was founded in 2011 and is based in Simi Valley, California.
According to company materials, “Airborne Wireless Network intends to create a high-speed broadband airborne wireless network by linking commercial aircraft in flight. Each aircraft participating in the network will act as an airborne repeater or router sending and receiving broadband signals from one aircraft to the next creating a digital superhighway in the sky. Airborne Wireless Network intends is to be a high-speed broadband internet pipeline to improve coverage connectivity. Airborne Wireless Network does not intend to provide retail customer coverage to end users, but, instead, will act as a wholesale carrier with target customers, such as internet service providers and telephone companies… Currently, the world’s connectivity is achieved by use of undersea cables, ground-based fiber and satellites. Airborne Wireless Network believes that Airborne Wireless Network’s airborne digital highway is the logical solution to fill the world’s connectivity void. Once the network is developed and fully implemented, its uses are limitless. Airborne Wireless Network, once developed, should provide low cost, high-speed connectivity to rural areas, island nations, ships at sea, oil platforms, in addition to connectivity to commercial and private aircraft in flight.”
