staff access up-to-the-minute recreation information on their mobile devices has
expanded its University Mobile Network to

“We’re thrilled with the response to the University Mobile Network,”
said Randy Jaramillo, CEO, Hothand Wireless. “We’re excited about working
closely with the universities to provide easily accessible information to
students and staff. We expect to have many more universities committed by the
end of the year.”
Last spring, Hothand Wireless made a partnership with the National
Intramural-Recreational Sports Association the resource for
professional/student development, education and research in collegiate
recreational sports. NIRSA affiliated colleges represent over 600 campuses and
more than 7 million students.
“There has been a very positive response to the Hothand Wireless
program,” said Kent Blumenthal, executive director, NIRSA.

UCLA which was sponsored by Best Buy Mobile. Hothand Wireless will be working
with universities to expand its services to encompass all aspects of college
life. Available on all carriers, students, faculty and alumni are able to take
