Freeway Honored by Best Mobile App Awards, Mobile Star Awards, World Summit Awards, and Media Excellence Awards
SEATTLE – February 01, 2017 – Syntonic, a leading mobile platform and services provider, today announced that its Freeway app has been recognized by multiple prestigious mobile award programs, including the Best Mobile App Awards, Mobile Star Awards, World Summit Awards, and Media Excellence Awards. Each award focuses on a unique aspect of the Freeway experience, such as user interface, economic benefits, social impact, and the technology. Rounding out a successful year for the company, the four award recognitions reflect the user growth, product innovation and global expansion of Freeway.
“We are incredibly proud to be recognized by these four awards that champion app leadership in the mobile and global technology industries; taken as a whole, they showcase the breadth of the Freeway experience and underscore the consumer benefits,” said Syntonic CEO and Co-Founder, Gary Greenbaum. “These awards confirm that the approach we are taking and the new offerings we are introducing through the app are aligned with what our users want and need.”
While mobile data consumption continues to skyrocket, with data traffic expected to increase seven-fold globally by 2021 (according to the 2016 Cisco Visual Networking Index), access remains largely expensive and restrictive. Meeting the growing consumer demand for mobile usage at an economical price point is a cornerstone of the Freeway model. Initially launched in 2016 to help close the gap between expensive data plans and affordable access, Freeway today provides consumers around the world with a flexible and easy-to-use solution. For its unique approach of putting mobile data access in the hands of the consumer, Freeway was recently honored by four award programs including:
- Best Mobile App Awards: Securing more than one thousand votes, Freeway was overwhelmingly selected for a Gold Award in the Fall 2017 “Best Social / Lifestyle App” category. Freeway was awarded for its unique offering to help consumers better manage beyond their data plan and structure their mobile access around the content they use and care about most.
- Mobile Star Awards: Freeway was awarded with a Best of 2017 designation in the annual Mobile Star Awards “Money Saving App” category for its unique approach to reducing the cost of mobile access. This award specifically recognized the benefits of Freeway Overpass, a new offering available in the United States that allows users to tap into unlimited data for specific apps and groups of apps through on-demand, in-app purchases.
- World Summit Awards (WSA): WSA is an especially prestigious awards program given its sponsorship by the United Nations and focus on honoring the individuals and companies that are creating digital innovations for the improvement of society and be able to buy medicine online. Freeway was selected by a range network technology and entrepreneurship experts to represent the United States in the Inclusion & Empowerment category of the international competition.

- Media Excellence Awards: Named as a finalist in the 10th annual Media Excellence Awards within the Analytics & Big Data category, Freeway was honored for the capabilities of its backend technology which can collect and display massive amounts of mobile data usage analytics including audience, app usage, consumer offers, and data consumed per app.
