We want to thank the editors and researchers at MONEY Magazine for recognizing Republic Wireless for the savings and simplicity of our plans. They put a significant amount of time and effort into research and fact checking their recommendations.

Want the best deal on a basic phone plan? According to Money Magazine, the choice is clear - WiFi calling leader Republic Wireless. Money evaluated almost 100 plans from 15 companies to compile the 2017 Best Cell Phone Plans.

Republic Wireless pioneered the idea of “WiFi first” resulting in tens of millions in annual savings for its customers. Republic’s smartphones deliver high quality and savings by using the less expensive WiFi network when possible and seamlessly connecting to nationwide 4G LTE cellular network whenever necessary. Starting at $15, all Republic plans include unlimited talk and text whether on WiFi or cellular, and instead of paying a premium for unlimited data with caveats buried in the fine print, customers chose the cellular data they really use.

“We want to thank the editors and researchers at MONEY Magazine for recognizing Republic Wireless for the savings and simplicity of our plans. They put a significant amount of time and effort into research and fact checking their recommendations,” said Chris Chuang, CEO of Republic Wireless. “It is very gratifying to our team to receive this particular recognition, especially as our mission is to provide remarkably simple and affordable ways for people to stay in touch.”

“In 2011 when we launched Republic Wireless, many consumers paid more than $100 a month for wireless service, and they were tied up in complex contracts and device financing schemes. It was a broken business model ripe for innovation, and we knew there could be a better way. A network is a network – we all use WiFi to power our laptops, tablets and other mobile devices – why shouldn’t it primarily power your smartphone too?” Chuang adds.

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.

Of the carriers offering service over both WiFi and cellular, Republic supports the broadest lineup of Android smartphones in its Bring Your Own Phone program – currently 17+ Android smartphones (Marshmallow and above) from manufacturers including Samsung, Huawei, and Motorola.

“With the growing prevalence of WiFi everywhere, there is simply no reason for anyone to pay a carrier for 24x7 access to a cellular network when you may only need to use that network for a couple of hours a day,” Chuang said.
