Televate Celebrates 20th Anniversary
Thursday, May 27, 2021 | Comments

Televate is celebrating its 20th anniversary by offering free Pinpoint subscriptions through August 15. Counties with populations under 100,000 and tribal nations of any size are eligible, and the first 20 to sign up will receive subscriptions through the limited-time Pinpoint 20 for 20 program.

Pinpoint is an easy-to-use app that allows users to measure their commercial carrier networks’ coverage and performance right from their Android cellphones. While other crowd-sourced tools present information only where service exists, Pinpoint collects information everywhere, especially in areas where the network begins to fail or where service does not exist. This data is visualized in user-friendly online maps that subscribers can use to drive discussions with their carriers to make needed improvements to their networks.

“We are thrilled to celebrate our 20th anniversary by helping those who need improvements in mobile broadband coverage the most: the rural and remote parts of the United States,” said Joe Ross, senior partner and creator of the Pinpoint platform.

Pinpoint can be used to compare commercial carrier coverage and performance and is especially valuable in determining service reliability, a key attribute for public-safety agencies’ mission-critical communications. State broadband offices can better understand where mobile broadband service is available and use Pinpoint data speed tests for the upcoming FCC mobile data mapping challenge process to help build more accurate mobile carrier maps.

“Pinpoint makes it incredibly easy to build your own realistic and detailed coverage maps and to compare mobile carrier performance,” said Televate Managing Partner Rick Burke. “Within this three-month span, agencies will be able to build comprehensive coverage maps to help decide which carrier is best, where gaps exist and more.”
