Management Comments

"We built Towerstream's fixed wireless business from the ground up and achieved cash flow profitability," stated Jeffrey Thompson, President and Chief Executive Officer. "This is a very exciting milestone for the company and we believe we can attain the same result with Hetnets, our tower subsidiary, while addressing a much larger market opportunity. We are very encouraged by the acceleration we are seeing in small cell business activity for Wi-Fi colocation, which gives us confidence in our strategy and market position."
