“Greg Smith is expected to help us strengthen and reposition the company,” explained Slingshot Chairman John Hendrick. “We were the first to offer Pay-As-You-Go/Pay-As-You-Roam Internet access based on our proprietary, patented technology, and our customers responded very positively. Our prepaid mobile product has also been greeted with enthusiasm by users. We are excited about the prospects as we move forward with strategic partners in the pre-paid mobile Internet sector.”
“It’s an honor to be chosen to lead Slingshot to the next stage, building on the successful efforts of my predecessors that have made Slingshot a leading consumer brand in the pre-paid mobile industry,” said Greg Smith, newly appointed President. “We are confident that Slingshot’s patented, proprietary technology will enable the right strategic partners to have a significant advantage in maintaining a huge portion of the prepaid mobile broadband sector.”

“We are convinced that Slingshot’s technology represents the future of the pre-paid Internet access market,” said Greg Smith, president. “We think Internet access should be available to people of all cultural and economic backgrounds. Slingshot technology enables users to access the Internet without the burden of annual contracts or high annual fees, thus significantly expanding Internet access. We look forward to launching our customer friendly service in Q1 of this year.”
