Can you believe it's November already? In just a couple of weeks we'll be chowing down on some turkey with all the fixings and before you know it, it'll be Christmas. Before we switch gears into holiday mode, here's what we've been working on this week:

Happy Anniversary!: Yesterday marked one year since we first started on the road to wireless freedom. We've come a long way from packing and shipping phones out of our Cary office to completing all Waves. We want to give a HUGE shout out to all of you for keeping us going and believing in our industry changing idea. Thanks for all your help and cheers to the next year of wireless freedom!


Waves: The checkered flag has been waved and all waves have now crossed the finished line! Waves O and P are now open for purchase for the single-band version of the DEFY XT. We'll shorten the invitation time for Waves O and P for some system changes, with both waves closing on 11/15/2012 at 11:59 p.m. ET. For a full list of what waves are currently open, please visit the Beta Waves Status page.


Dual-band DEFY XT update: We're excited to let you know that the dual-band version of the DEFY XT has entered the lab! Our product team will continue to work closely with Motorola to assure the certification process is going smoothly. We'll share any new info with you as we have it.


Movember: In case you missed last week's update, we're running a photo submission contest to benefit mens' cancers research. For a full description of the contest, check out the Movember Challenge page. We've received some submissions already and they're looking great; keep 'em coming! Don't forget ladies, you can participate as well. Don't be afraid to head over to the craft store and make your own. We've got some pretty groovy looking 'staches here at the office as well. So far Bandwidth (and all its divisions) have raised almost $1700 for male cancer research!


Local community: We're proud to mention that Bandwidth won the 2012 NCTA 21 Awards for private company of the year. On November 7 and 8, Bandwidth attended an Internet Summit at the Raleigh Convention Center. People interested in learning or working for Bandwidth had the opportunity to speak with some of our employees and learn how to apply for open positions. If you live in the Raleigh, NC area and are interested in working for Bandwidth, or any of its divisions, please go to our job listings page.


That's all we have for you this week. We'll now return to your regularly scheduled program.
