What is Republic Wireless?

Recognized in the 2014 Readers Choice Awards as having better overall customer satisfaction than the largest four national carriers, Republic Wireless is a service provider dedicated to helping consumers save money on their smartphone service. A division of and headquartered in Raleigh, North Carolina, Republic Wireless is spearheading a wireless freedom movement to return value and control of the smartphone experience to members. Leveraging the power of both WiFi and cellular networks, Republic's Hybrid technology uses WiFi in the home, office or anywhere else as the primary network for calls, texts and data. When outside of WiFi coverage, the smartphone utilizes the cellular networks of national CDMA carriers.

How is Republic Wireless unique and why is it so cheap?

That's because it used wifi instead of the cellular, which does not incur any charge to Republic Wireless. The cool thing for us customers is that we do not need to be around wifi; since it is a hybrid network, the network automatically switches to Sprint when the wifi is off or out of range.

  1. While the Moto E looks promising considering how cheap it is, I am eagerly waiting on the new version of Moto X aka Moto X+1.... :)
    RW takes a little bit of time to roll those new phones through its assembly line.

  2. Moto E is a good money saver. Just like Republic Wireless itself. Both of them make a good combination. I am waiting to get a Moto G soon, and will buy a Moto E for my daughter. Money savings begins next week...

  3. Do you guys save like $100 per month after switching to Republic Wireless? I'm interested.

  4. Signed up for the $10/Mo plan! with Moto E. Hoping to save money now. Bye bye Verizon :P

  5. Signed up for the unlimited call, text, 3G data plan. Thank you for the $20 credit referral.

  6. Ordered one for myself. Now let's see how long they take to deliver. Fingers crossed..

  7. Cool stuff. Just ordered one for my daughter who's in college.

  8. Is the offer still there? Cuz I just checked it out and it seems they are not offering referral discounts at the moment. Maybe I'll wait for sometime and check back later. Thanks anyway!
