"For almost 13 years, FreeWave radios have been on-duty continuously, and I personally can attest to their durability and reliability in conditions that, frankly, radios shouldn't survive. These radios routinely are exposed to bitter cold and winds that far exceed the radios specifications, and have always passed the test. It is because of this outstanding record of performance, as well as the superior customer support we receive, that we have decided to stay with FreeWave, despite the multitude of competitors, in the upgrade of our ARVP sites this year."

"We are driven to succeed by ensuring that all our products, service and support meet or exceed our customers' and partners' needs," explained Kim Niederman, CEO of FreeWave.
