Spot On Networks, LLC ("Spot On" or the "Company") has implemented a subscriber-based service business of wireless broadband access utilizing high quality and cost-effective technology platforms to provide wireless broadband Internet access to residential users in Multifamily Dwelling Units ("MDUs"), hotel guests and enterprise users in commercial multitenant buildings ("MTUs") nationwide. The Company is positioned to capitalize on a $35 million investment already made in proprietary wireless security software, network infrastructure and strong business relationships with telecom giants seeking to offload data from overutilized cellular systems, energy management giants seeking to reduce costs of installing "green" energy products and building owners seeking to reduce operating expense and satisfy tenant demands for mobile services and energy efficiency. In substantially all of the properties in which the Company installs its secure, high quality networks, it has obtained the exclusive right to manage and coordinate the Wi-Fi services offered by the building to its tenants through long term contracts and has recently filed for a patent on the design of indoor Wi-Fi networks.

Secure, high quality networks that provide high speed wireless internet access using fiber optic backbone to provide services to different devices with different uses. Implementation of these services in multifamily residential and multitenant commercial buildings reduces interference of radio signals and improves overall performance as well as increases capacity for smartphones and other devices.
Using patent pending technology, the Company provides Cellphone Carrier Data Offload to residents of multifamily residential communities and employees of companies in multitenant commercial properties that subscribe to cellphone services in dense, urban environments. Because the capacity of cellphone services is limited by the amount of available radio frequency spectrum, and data requirements are increasing by greater than 50% per year, Wi-Fi offers the best alternative to the cellphone carriers to provide additional capacity.
The Company provides Energy Management, Control and other bolt on applications via a Multipurpose Wireless Backbone service in multitenant commercial buildings and multifamily residential buildings as well as retail establishments such as restaurants. The venue owner uses Smartphones or Tablets to control and monitor energy usage. Wi-Fi can also be offered to tenants, residents and patrons of the various facilities.
