Towerstream to Launch Distribution Network for Daily Deals

(GlobeNewswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) MIDDLETOWN, R.I., Aug. 10, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Towerstream Corporation (Nasdaq:TWER), a leading 4G service provider, today announced the launch of its Manhattan Distribution Network which will offer daily deal sites and all mobile app providers access to millions of potential consumers through their smart phones, tablets and notebooks while simultaneously providing free Wi-Fi access to those consumers.

Customers will rent one of nine channels available on Towerstream's Manhattan Wi-Fi network, the largest network in Manhattan which today includes over 1000 access points, to offer their consumers free internet access after downloading a mobile app to their mobile device or offering a splash screen featuring the customer's daily deal.

Towerstream has partnered with BlisMobile, one of the world's largest location-based media owners. BlisMobile brings leading brand sponsors to the distribution network for the first several weeks of the new initiative. Under this agreement, consumers will receive free Wi-Fi access in exchange for downloading a brand's mobile app.  Please see the demonstration video of BlissMobile for more details about the service at: Gregor Isbister, Manager Director at BlisMobile, said: "Increasingly agencies, buyers and planners understand the benefits of being able to buy mobile media inventory and optimize campaigns across a broader set of mobile channels and in particular Wi-Fi." "The partnership with Towerstream perfectly exemplifies how we are giving our blue-chip clients such as Amazon, Google and eBay, the opportunity to deliver rich, location-based campaigns to a highly segmented audience. More than this, since all campaigns are managed via BlisMobile, they can be optimized to deliver maximum return on investment."  "We are very pleased that our first partnership of this kind with BlisMobile will allow such significant internet brands to leverage our distribution network," said Jeff Thompson, CEO of Towerstream. "We believe that connecting consumers with products that are in their proximity is invaluable. Our distribution network for daily deals not only drives downloads to mobile apps, it significantly expands the reach of daily deal sites and all mobile app providers by offering untapped users – a key ingredient for all parties." Towerstream also offers its Wi-Fi network to mobile operators as a handoff solution to alleviate network congestion. It is designed to have a minimum of 200 mbps of available bandwidth per Hotzone, making it one of the fastest portable Wi-Fi networks in Manhattan. Trials have shown smartphone users have received 4-20Mbs per handset device while laptops and tablet users have received 30-90Mbs per device.
