CCA Global Expo Kicks Off with Fighting Words Masayoshi Son, Softbank and Sprint Chairman, Commits Financial and Partnership Resources to CCA Members to Compete Against Duopoly
SAN ANTONIO, March 27, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- CCA Global Expo -- Competitive Carriers Association's Global Expo kicked off today, with keynote remarks from Masayoshi Son, founder and chairman of Softbank and chairman of Sprint. During his address, Masayoshi Son outlined Sprint's strong commitment to working collaboratively with CCA's membership to gain access to LTE devices and LTE coverage.
Because Sprint and the CCA membership have complementary coverage areas, this new partnership will create a new national alternative to the largest carriers. During his remarks, Masayoshi Son committed financial resources to CCA carrier members who wish to build out their LTE mobile broadband capabilities.
Drawing on his personal story, Masayoshi Son emphasized his belief that all Americans should have equal opportunities and access. He ended his remarks by asking CCA members to join him and "fight back against the duopoly to make that happen."
"We have more U.S. carriers in attendance at this year's Global Expo than ever before," said Steven K. Berry, CCA's president and CEO. "With so many leaders coming together in one place to discuss the future of the wireless industry and the need for a truly competitive marketplace, it was exciting to have Masayoshi Son on hand to announce Sprint's commitment to our membership."
