LOS ANGELES, Oct. 27, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GAWK Inc. (OTC:GAWK) CEO Scott Kettle appeared on Money-TV (http://vimeo.com/109881835) on Friday, October 24, 2014, launching GAWK's plan to create revenue by acquiring data centers to offload the vast amounts of data produced by the major wireless cell phone companies.
"The big wireless companies like AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and others around the world have a problem," Kettle said. "The explosive growth in cell phone use creates vast and growing amounts of data. There is only so much spectrum and the Telcos are running out of room for storage. My family are pioneers in the telecommunications arena, having started three public companies that were very successful, and based on my experience and contacts within the industry, GAWK believes it has a solution by becoming the largest storage site for cell phone data. That is a business model that's not only creative, but also progressive."
"GAWK is a new way to capitalize on the explosive growth in cell phone use," Kettle continued. "We don't make or sell phones, but our customers do. And our customers are among the giants of global business. When they succeed, we do as well."
