Nextel Getting Closer To National Direct Connect

While other carriers are working out how to replicate push-to-talk walkie talkie services on their network, Nextel is enhancing their existing product. The latest version of Nextel’s Direct Connect allows the traveling users to use Direct Connect with users in the market they are visiting or with people from their market that have travelled with them. This is all leading up to making Direct Connect work nationally which is expected in Q3. Nextel has a huge lead with push-to-talk so it will be interesting to see if competitors can catch up and out do Nextel.
