Devicescape, a California-based company that specializes in developing software for wireless networking, is announcing that it has licensed Wi-Fi data from its Curated Virtual Network (CVN) to Microsoft for its Windows Phone 8 mobile operating system. The company has over 11 million high-quality hotspots up to date and the contract with Microsoft will allow mobile users with Windows Phone 8 devices to use their hotspots while on the go. Apart from those benefits, Windows Phone 8 users will also see their mobile data costs reduced.
“Mobile data caps, tiers and throttling are limiting the smartphone experience”, said Dave Fraser, CEO of Devicescape. “By leveraging the Devicescape network of public hotspots, Microsoft can now pass along tremendous value to its Windows Phone 8 users enabling them to locate a nearby quality WiFi network. Windows Phone 8 users will now have an alternative way to manage their monthly data plan while maintaining the quality of service they are accustomed to from their mobile provider.”
