July 9, 2013

HERZLIA, Israel, July 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

In a survey among participants at LTE World Summit, Flash Networks, the leading
provider of mobile Internet optimization and monetization solutions, revealed that while
50% of the executives surveyed rated their network as “very fast” (20mps or faster), 68%
of respondents believed that their network was still not fast enough.

When executives were asked what rate of acceleration would make it worth their while
to invest in technologies to boost their network’s speed, over 70% said they would be
satisfied with as little as 20% acceleration.

“At Flash Networks, we find these results especially interesting as our TCP-4TE LTE
acceleration solution boosts network speed by up to 50%, and sometimes even more, without
any investment in additional network infrastructure – far exceeding operators’
expectations,” said Merav Bahat, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at
Flash Networks. “The results confirm our belief that operators are prepared to do whatever
it takes to win the race to be the fastest.”

In fact, 64% of respondents indicated that they plan to implement technology to speed
up their network within the next two years. These findings are consistent with a

survey published last month, reporting that all four of the
largest U.S. wireless carriers are planning to invest in LTE advanced in order to boost
speeds even further.

In addition, 75% of respondents believe that speed is an important competitive
advantage. Mentioned almost twice as often as price or coverage, speed was considered a
primary consideration when subscribers select a mobile operator.
