“Republic is all about bringing the best money saving deals directly to consumers. WiFi is all around us, and it simply makes no sense to pay your carrier $100+ a month when it is so easy to connect first on WiFi, knowing that cellular coverage is always available as needed,” said Chris Chuang, chief executive officer, Republic Wireless.
“We continue to build out our portfolio of supported Android smartphones so there are multiple options for every budget – The Huawei Ascend 5W in particular offers a lot of higher-end features at a very compelling price point,” Chuang said.
“Huawei is once again excited to partner with Republic Wireless in the launching of our Ascend 5W smartphone with Android Marshmallow operating system,” said Eric Li, senior vice president carrier accounts for Huawei Device USA. “We describe it as affordable luxury with high-tech features. Republic’s customers are going to love its state-of-the-art performance, premium metal design, high-sensitivity reader, and enhanced camera functionality.”
Republic’s Adaptive Coverage™ blends WiFi with cellular to create expanded network coverage for consumers that is less expensive to operate. The Clear Choice Plans pass these savings on to customers in the form of being 40%-60% less expensive than comparable plans from the big carriers.
