  • Access to AT&T's more than 34,000 Wi-Fi Hot Spots in the U.S.
  • Monitoring of push-to-talk activity and ability to record conversations of employees using company-issued Enhanced PTT devices.

"Push-to-talk services have been a mainstay in the field services, transportation, EMS, construction, real estate and hospitality businesses for many years," Silber said. "Our customers have been looking for a more reliable, highly-secure and flexible push-to-talk alternative for quite some time and now MetTel can offer them such a solution."

MetTel has been a participant in the AT&T** Partner Exchange(SM) (www.att.com/partnerexchange) reseller program since 2013," said Chris Bryan, assistant vice president, Product Management, Emerging Business Markets, AT&T Business Solutions.
