The idea that technology should be made available to everyone at an affordable price across all platforms and products is in keeping with the idea that the more access people have to communications advances, the more open information resources become, the better off human kind will be. That appears to be a role near and dear to Fields, Simms and Ward-Maupin. Together they are a part of a formidable team that Aio Wireless is putting in place to make sure the digital divide truly becomes a footnote in history. Especially during Black History Month, the employees of this dynamic new brand would rather spend their time and energies reminding us that people of color have always made a difference in putting this country and their communities on the cutting edge of scientific and technological progress. They would remind us that Granville T. Woods was such a person.

In 1892, Woods patented the Synchronous Multiplex Railway Telegraph, which allowed communications between train stations from moving trains. His invention made it possible for trains to communicate with the station and with other trains so they knew exactly where they were at all times. Aio Wireless is committed to never letting America forget its past as they help build its glorious future.
