About Siden

Siden, through its Unlimited Play (“UP”) service and innovative distribution platform, is delivering a high quality and compelling video service to homes over existing wireless networks without impacting the users data plan or wireless network capacity.

More than 50% of global households, over 1B in total, don’t have access to high speed fixed broadband, but have access to a mobile broadband service. Today, wireless operators and content providers can’t offer video services to these users or compete with cable providers due to a 20x increase in traffic per home subscriber from OTT Video use on TVs, tablets, laptops, and smartphones in the homes.

Siden partners with wireless operators and content providers to deliver our Unlimited Play video service to their subscribers, enabling a wireless home broadband service, unlocking $100Bs of revenue opportunity.

(Still in stealth so don't expect to find much on the Internet)
