    We're working with a similar technology, only we target all devices, not just mobile. With more than 25 million internet access points mapped we target the modem of competitors within an x mile radius and serve up display ads in a real time bidding environment across devices. For example, if you were to open up Joe's Coffee Shop right here in Buffalo, we could target every Starbucks/Dunkin' Donuts/Tim Hortons in a 5 mile radius and serve up an ad/coupon for a free small coffee. It's approximately 600x more granular than zip code level targeting.
