A couple of weeks from now, the spring season will officially be starting, and Tello is welcoming the vernal equinox by unveiling a new lineup of lower prices. Some may remember that before the end of last year, the mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) had reduced its pricing by as much as $6. Well, just three months later, the company is at it again.
Recently this week, Comcast’s wireless service, Xfinity Mobile, has announced that BYOD (bring your own device) customers can now activate their unlocked iPhones (albeit select models only -- they can check by heading to this page) on the MVNO’s network by visiting any Xfinity Store location in the United States. Moreover, those users that happen to own handsets that are not eligible can still have their device swapped for a gift card that is worth the value of their smartphone.
As reported by FierceWireless, mobile virtual network operator FreedomPop is introducing a new cloud based wireless platform that businesses can take full advantage of when setting up their own branded wireless offerings. The service is called Carrier in the Cloud, and it is basically an extension of the MVNO’s proprietary SaaS platform.
Best Cellular is a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) that not only sells no contract wireless plans for mobile users, but also offers multi-carrier corporate plans for enterprises. Based in Colorado, the company is also selling handsets, SIM cards, and accessories, through a network of retail outlets and partner dealers. Recently, the carrier has also started to offer prepaid Internet of Things (IoT) data plans for developers who are creating solutions for IoT and M2M (machine to machine) development.
Republic Wireless has formally unveiledRelay, which is basically a screenless smart walkie talkie that both very young kids and their parents can use to keep in touch with each other. The mobile virtual network operator (read our 2017 review of the company) has specifically designed the device for children who will soon become first time smartphone owners in the next few years.
Yup, Tello is doing it again -- the mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) has decided to drop the prices of its plans even further, by as much as $6. Indeed, Tello plans that were originally priced at more than $17 are now made significantly cheaper. For instance, an option that comes with 500 minutes of voice calls and 3 gigabytes of 4G LTE data access previously priced at $34 per month has now been reduced to a monthly price of $28.
Other Tello plans with lowered prices include the following:
Today’s smart speakers are usually primarily designed for amplifying music and allowing users to manage their home controls, and not so much about taking care of phone calls. Mobile virtual network operator Republic Wireless, however, is building a smart speaker that is focused on phone calls.
Enter the Anywhere HQ -- an LTE ready smart speaker that people can use mainly to make phone calls, and for good measure, also provide verbal instructions to. Similar to how Google’s Home and Amazon’s Echo works, Republic Wireless’ Anywhere HQ can be activated by using a specific command phrase.
Black Friday starts one week early for ROK Mobile, and its latest deal is a pretty generous one. Beginning today, any new customer who decides to sign up for the Black Friday special offer get a chance to experience three whole months of unlimited voice call minutes, text messaging, and data (with a data prioritization policy beyond the 20 gigabyte limit and video streaming at 480p), all for only $99 for those three months.
FreedomPop’s retail expansion efforts are beginning to bear fruit -- the mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) is launching its wireless services and mobile devices in over 1,100 Target locations across the United States, as well as on Target’s official website. Basically, the partnership will see the retail giant offer FreedomPop’s SIM cards for five bucks and Android powered smartphone devices starting at a very affordable $59.
