GSM Nation, LLC is a rapidly expanding wireless retail and services company with two primary goals:
- To encourage the US wireless industry to shift away from the practice of roping customers into restrictive, overpriced contracts.
- To improve online shopping from a complicated, stressful, and opaque experience to one that goes beyond simple retail altogether and includes complete transparency, customizable service, tech support, advice, and more.
We are always working to develop a website and company that reflects these goals. Our anti-contract agenda is the reason, in addition to offering the widest (and best) selection of phones from all over the world, our site also hosts the "Savings Calculator"—a wireless plan comparison tool that has helped users save hundreds of dollars in wireless fees by switching to contract-free services—and the most comprehensive information center to help users learn more about contract-free services and phones.
And our aim of offering a secure, transparent, and fun online shopping experience is the reason we are completely open about who we are and where we work and offer more than just customer service—not only can you keep in touch with us 24/7 through a combination of email or phone but, when you call, it doesn’t just have to be about what phone to buy. It can be for tech support, advice on what wireless service to use, or to learn about what 3G exactly is. If the gossip is interesting enough, we’ll even listen to you complain about your neighbor.
We are also crazy about all things tech and wireless-related and are constantly working to create an online community that holds active discussions around those topics. We regularly upload phone reviews to our Youtube channel and keep in touch with our customers via Twitter. We are also working on adding a discussion forum feature to pages on our site (we'll keep you posted on that!).
GSM Nation Family
CEO and co-founder
Ahmed Khattak is the co-founder and CEO of GSM Nation, LLC, and a serial entrepreneur (prior to GSM Nation, Ahmed was also helped found Buraq Energy Pvt LTD and Infinitronics LLC). He has an obsession with wireless technology, completed his bachelor’s from Yale University with a double major in Electrical Engineering and History, is an avid squash player, and in his spare time lurks around the Yale Entrepreneurial Institute, the same place GSM Nation, LLC was incubated. As with all CEOs, it is unclear what Ahmed does all day, except that it looks like he is always writing emails. If you want to write him one, feel free to send it to email@example.com.
Junaid is the co-founder of GSM Nation along with Ahmed Khattak and manages the Washington, DC office. His primary job there seems to be making the rest of us look bad—not only does he manage the company’s DC office, he is also pursuing a medical degree at George Washington University, where he is currently in his fourth year. Junaid also completed a Bachelor’s in Public Health from GWU. You can get in touch with him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Business Development Associate
Ahmed is a passionate entrepreneur. He was bitten by the entrepreneurial bug (and berated by his father) at a tender age of 6 in his father's scarf shop. Legend has it that he made his first sale by giving away an expensive scarf to an old lady at a ridiculously low price. Ahmed has since become wiser but to erase any self doubt he went to Yale (graduating with no less than a magna cum laude with a double distinction and a Phi Beta Kappa to top it all). He is currently pursuing his MBA at Harvard Business School. In between Yale and HBS, Ahmed spent time as an Analyst at Goldman Sachs in New York and later worked as an Associate at Vector Capital, a technology focused private equity firm.
Ahmed spent his most recent summer in the elm city working with fellow Yale alums doing idea generation and product strategy for GSM Nation (a Yale incubated startup). Ahmed has since continued his involvement with GSM Nation performing business development functions. In his spare time, Ahmed loves to agonize over the pathetic performances of the two teams he supports i.e. Pakistan cricket team and Liverpool. His favorite color is blue. He is a friendly guy and if you want to befriend him, shoot him an email at email@example.com.
Sajid is GSM Nation’s in-house web designer and manages all creative and technical aspects of the website’s front-end. He also assists Enam in developing GSM Nation’s content-management systems and has a BA in Computer Engineering and Design. If you have design and UI suggestions, or just want to thank him for how great the website looks, write to him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
