GetWireless Announces North American Distribution Agreement with Option

GetWireless, a national distributor of cellular-based solutions, today announced a North American distribution agreement with Option (EURONEXT Brussels: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY), a global leader in wireless broadband technology. GetWireless will now be a premier North American distributor for Option’s GlobeSurfer® III broadband router and the iCON® 452 USB modem, some of the first products of their kind to operate on the AWS frequency band in the United States.
