Competitive Companies, Inc. and Columbus, Ohio: “Developing A Smart City.”

SAN ANTONIO, May 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Competitive Companies, Inc. “CCI” (OTCBB: CCOP), a leading developer of “Smart City” technologies, announced today that the Company has successfully completed its Phase Two Pilot Program inColumbus, Ohio paving the way for further development in supporting the fastest citywide Wi-Fi network in North America.

Phase Two of the Pilot Program resulted in an unprecedented download speed of more than 150Mbps to a mobile device—more than 15 times faster than what is currently available.  These speeds are a result of the company’s proprietary technology and utilization of the City’s current infrastructure collectively designed to revolutionize a consumer’s experience via their mobile devices.

The second phase of the Program focused on multiple technical network aspects including load balancing, secure SSID connections, path differentiation, millimeter wave backhaul and stability of mobile throughput speeds. The Pilot network configuration consisted of more than 50 network access points located strategically on four downtown City-owned facilities.

“As we expected, the Pilot Program was an unprecedented success,” remarked Angus Davis, CCI’s Chief Strategy Officer. “We remain focused on delivering the nation’s first ‘Smart City’ development; the foundation of which contains CCI’s proprietary ultra-fast, high capacity, citywide Wi-Fi.”

Gary Cavin, Director of Technology with the City of Columbus states, “We look forward to our continued spirit of collaboration with CCI in designing and building the first Smart City Wi-Fi Network in the United States and being able to ignite economic growth and build a healthier, more sustainable future for Columbus.”

CCI originally partnered with Columbus in December of 2012 on Phase 1 of the Pilot Program and was successful in registering speeds of 117 Mbps to a laptop and more than 70 Mbps to a smart phone. Phase Two of the Program registered new throughput speeds for a laptop at 155 Mbps. This included multiple tests for inside and outside Wi-Fi nodes.

Due to the combined success of the multi-phased Pilot Programs, the City of Columbus has now requested CCI to initiate Phase three, an expanded rollout, to the remaining areas of the Central Business District (CBD) that will include redundant connections to the City’s security applications and other strategically located sites. This solidifies CCI’s original business model of establishing citywide Wi-Fi 4G coverage in the CBD. The business model calls for the delivery of expanded coverage by serving multiple carriers over a fiber optics redundant network. The new network plan complies with the City’s mandate to provide carrier-agnostic coverage capable of supporting “free Wi-Fi” services to chosen community locations while simultaneously allowing carriers to offer exceptionally high-speed (4G) services to their paying customers.

In conjunction with Columbus, CCI is now in high level discussions with nine (9) additional U.S. cities and two foreign countries related to its Smart City development concept.

CCI Patent Report Released

SAN ANTONIO, Sept. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Competitive Companies, Inc. “CCI” (OTCBB: CCOP), www.cci-us.comannounced today that it has received a final Report on the five U.S. patents owned by Wytec International, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of CCI. “We are very excited about the results of the Inavisis Report issued by Dr. Sam Khoury, President of Inavisis, Inc.” remarked William H. Gray, CEO/President of CCI. Dr. Khoury is well-recognized as one of the most respected patent research specialists in North America.  He has been retained by, and provided patent analysis and research for some of America’s largest fortune 500 companies. Dr. Khoury’s findings on the Wytec patents provide the Company a focused pathway for uncovering and measuring the total value and specific number of Industry opportunities available to CCI in the area of multi-channeling technology.

The patents contain the foundational elements of Local Multipoint Distribution Service (LMDS). The Wytec patents contain a unique throughput expansion technique known as Multichannel Radio Frequency Transmission (MRFT). In essence, this technology combines multiple channels in a specified frequency allowing for expanding data throughput to existing carrier networks. This further enables carriers to accelerate broadband speeds to, and beyond 4G delivery definitions. MRFT has recently been identified by Industry experts as a significant contribution to the existing multi-billion dollar mobile broadband Industry, which continues to spiral upward in value. This provides CCI/Wytec the opportunity to introduce product solutions which address the current spectrum dilution in America now described by the FCC as the “Spectrum Crisis”. CCI has already begun discussions with major manufacturers for co-developing the next generation of these products including their specific operating technology and expects new research and development efforts to begin by year end. As always, interested parties can keep up to date on CCI news and information by visiting the CCI Communications Portal at www.cciusnews.com

CCI 4G Wi-Fi Success in Columbus, Ohio

SAN ANTONIO, Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Competitive Companies, Inc. “CCI” (OTCBB: CCOP), www.cci-us.comannounced today that on December 5th, 2012 at approximately 10:30AM at the Center of Science and Industry in Columbus, Ohio (one of the largest modern built science centers in the United States), CCI and Wytec International, Inc., along with top national and international engineers including technical personnel with the City of Columbus witnessed “117 Mbps” of Internet bandwidth service delivered to multiple mobile devices. “This is a very significant event and we are very pleased that the City of Columbus was chosen for this historic occasion,” commented Gary Cavin, Director of the Department of Technology. The test concluded the first tier of a multi-stage trial program involving the delivery of a “true” 4G service as defined by the International Mobile Telecommunications Advanced (IMT-Advanced) specification, setting peak speed requirements for 4G service at 100 megabits per second (Mbit/s) for high mobility communication.

This event has set Columbus, Ohio apart from any city in America as being the first to exceed the 4G speed barrier by more than 50 megabits per second. Columbus was nominated in the list of the 2012 Smart21 Communities of the Year. This is a very prestigious award program issued by the Intelligent Community Forum (ICF), a worldwide organization responsible for the International Awards Program and includes communities from around the World. The City of Columbus plans to include the 4G Wi-Fi Trial Program results in its 2013 ICF Application.

The second stage of the Trial Program includes a “network load balance” and “capacity” test designed to prove handling of multiple mobile devices simultaneously at 100+ Mbps 4G speeds and is scheduled to occur within the next few months. The third and final test will be a “seamless integration” test designed to demonstrate the ability of the CCI/Wytec network to seamlessly connect with a carrier network allowing complete customer integration without loss of carrier contact. This final test will demonstrate the capability of a carrier to maintain complete “activity” control of its subscriber activities during network handoffs throughout a customer session. This test represents a “first of its kind” demonstration of the actual delivery of 100+ Mbps to multiple mobile devices across multiple carrier networks performed simultaneously without losing customer contact at any stage in the hand-off process. “The most unique and important aspect of this test is that the CCI Offload Solution is carrier agnostic and capable of integrating simultaneously with up to 16 Service Set Identifiers known as ‘SSID’ connections,” saysWilliam H. Gray, CEO of Competitive Companies, Inc.

Upon a successful completion of the multi-stage test, CCI plans to build-out its 4G Wi-Fi offload solution in at least fifteen (15) Central Business District’s (CBD) throughout selected cities in North America by year end 2013. Estimated cost to build-out the initial CBD stage in all 15 communities is approximately $1.5 Million per community. Financing of the Project includes a combination of institutional and private funding. Columbus is the first of fifteen (15) CBD deployments planned for development by CCI in 2013.

CCI’s High-Capacity Network Goes Live in Columbus, Ohio

SAN ANTONIO, TX, September 26, 2013 –Competitive Companies, Inc. CCI (OTCBB: CCOP), through its wholly owned subsidiary, Capaciti Networks, Inc., announced today that the Company has gone live in the Central Business District (CBD) of Columbus, Ohio. Capaciti had already performed multiple Wi-Fi speed tests including piloting a video surveillance system for the City before beginning its citywide Wi-Fi deployment.

This milestone with the City of Columbus will set a new U.S. standard for the future of citywide Wi-Fi deployments and a critical measurement for determining Intelligent City criteria, remarks William Gray, President/CEO for CCI.

Capaciti’s proprietary high capacity network will initially serve more than 50 access point locations capable of producing broadband speeds in excess of 150 Mbps to mobile devices and more than 1 Gigabyte of broadband services to commercial and residential locations.Capaciti Networks is quickly emerging as a recognized leader of Intelligent Community technologies after its unprecedented pilot program success demonstrated to the City of Columbus in December of 2012.

We are extremely pleased with the success of the Capacitis technology and excited about their decision to deploy this technology throughout our City, remarks Gary Cavin, Director of Technology for the City of Columbus.

The pilot program recorded record breaking mobile broadband speeds of over 150 Mbps on a laptop and over 70 Mbps on multiple smart phones. The Capaciti network design is an important foundation for the Companys next generation multi-spectrum/multi-channel technology. Due to a growing spectrum crisis as identified by the FCC in late 2011, U.S. cell carriers are investing heavily to resolve the crisis. The public is recognizing the crisis in slower data speeds and more dropped cellphone calls. U.S. cities and municipalities are recognizing the crisis in a degradation of public services and the difficulty in completing essential interoperability between cities. As a result of these serious issues, cities have become more open to a new concept known as Shared Services involving a public/private partnership approach between city government and corporate enterprise. By incorporating Shared Services, cities and enterprises can move beyond bureaucratic constraints to the benefit of greater economic growth and advancements in public service utilities.

In order for U.S. cities to become more globally competitive and provide its citizens with improved public services while offering greater choices in education, health care, employment and business opportunities, it will need to embrace a more enterprise approach such as Shared Services, remarks Mr. Gray.

When fully deployed, Capacitis proprietary multi-spectrum network will fully support the public-private Shared Services model. As mobile broadband becomes more of the staple of global communication and as a major economic driver, carriers will need greater access to multiple microcell locations that cities can provide. Both carriers and municipalities will benefit in the Shared Services model by being able to provide citizens with greater broadband speeds while enhancing public services such as improved video surveillance, first responder, AMR and interoperability coverage.

Capaciti Networks is scheduling deployment of its proprietary high-capacity network in more than 30 U.S. cities over the next 24 months utilizing its tier one access.
