KAMLOOPS, BC, Feb. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Navigata Communications 2009 Inc. is pleased to announce the beginning of a commercial trial of SuperWiFi service in Kamloops, BC.  SuperWiFi users will be able to access the Internet throughout the city from any standard WiFi-enabled device.  Voice, video, data and web browsing will all be supported on a high-speed, low-latency network. The service will be marketed under Navigata's newest subsidiary, kuMobile.

"We are very excited about bringing this new service to Kamloops," says J. Owen Gilbert, COO of Navigata Communications.  "After months of technical testing, we are looking forward to launching this market trial."

kuMobile will use Navigata's licensed 3.5 Ghz spectrum to provide backhaul and connectivity to the Kamloops area.  The kuMobile SuperWiFi network will support the 802.11n standard delivering throughput up to 160 Mbps.

"With this next-gen wireless technology, we can offer better bandwidth to meet the demands of today's mobile consumer for real-time applications like live TV streaming, file and photo sharing, and video calling," states John Ku, President of kuMobile.  "These real-time apps have previously been limited by upstream bandwidth."

kuMobile will offer monthly subscription services, as well as daily and weekly pre-paid options, to residents, businesses and visitors to the area.

Following a successful commercial trial in Kamloops, Navigata has plans to roll-out SuperWiFi service in medium-sized communities across BC and Alberta, over the next three years, under the kuMobile brand.
