GTA wins US Navy wireless service contract

18 Dec 2013

GTA, a provider of fixed and mobile telephony, internet access and digital television services in Guam, has secured a USD5.1 million contract from the US Department of the Navy. Under the terms of the five-year agreement, GTA will provide BlackBerry and cellular phone wireless communication services in various locations to the Naval Facilities Engineering Command in Guam. In a press release, the company said it was awarded the contract after a bidding process among several interested communications providers. ‘Over the years, GTA has participated in federal bids to provide various communications services to the US government. Through this process we have been successful in securing multiple contracts. This recent federal award is the largest granted to GTA to date,’ commented Robert Haulbrook, president and chief executive officer at GTA. Privately-owned GTA has invested more than USD90 million in network enhancements since undergoing privatisation in 2005, and in October 2013 it notably launched 4G LTE services to satisfy the increased demand for data service from its large smartphone subscriber base.
