Industry innovator Republic Wireless is dialing up the pressure on the bigger carriers with its popular WiFi Calling service. The company is now offering some of the lowest priced plans in the market along with a significantly increased range of device options. The new lineup consists of nine new phones from leading Android smartphone manufacturers including Samsung, Motorola and the Google Nexus Line by LG and Huawei.
Starting today, consumers may purchase the following Android 6.0 Marshmallow smartphones at RepublicWireless.com:
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge - $799 (or as low as $48 a month*)

Republic’s Adaptive CoverageTM blends WiFi with cellular to create expanded network coverage for consumers that is less expensive to operate. The Clear Choice Plans pass those savings on to customers in the form of being 40%-60% less expensive than comparable plans from the big carriers:
Unlimited Talk & Text + WiFi Data /$15 a month.
Unlimited Talk & Text + WiFi Data + 1G Cellular Data / $20 a month
Unlimited Talk & Text + WiFi Data + 2G Cellular Data / $30 a month
Unlimited Talk & Text + WiFi Data + 4G Cellular Data / $45 a month
Note: While Republic’s marketing focus will be on the $15-$45/month price range, which addresses the needs of the vast majority of US subscribers, plans with up to 10GB of monthly cellular data are available.
Beyond its initial list of devices, the company is continuing to rapidly test and certify additional smartphones that can be enhanced with their Adaptive CoverageTM technology. They expect to announce additional lower priced phones in the coming months. On August 11th consumers will also be able to purchase a SIM card from Republic Wireless and activate an account using their own Android smartphones from the list of approved devices.
“With Republic Wireless talk is cheap - literally. From day one, our goal has always been to create a quality mobile service that was remarkably affordable.” said Chris Chuang, Chief Operating Officer of Republic Wireless. “The fact is the majority of consumers are within range of a WiFi network most of their day and yet are still paying like they are on cellular 24X7. Our patented technology uses the WiFi networks consumers are already paying for to lessen their cellular use and ultimately reduce what they end up paying for their mobile service. Today’s announcement is a significant leap forward in our mission to lower everyone’s mobile phone bill.”
Republic Wireless has earned a loyal customer following and prestigious awards such as PC Magazine’s Editor’s Choice for “Highest User Satisfaction for plan costs in the nation” as well as top rankings in Consumer Reports and more.
