After the past several years, today was the final straw that will be driving my wife and I from Republic Wireless. I wanted to draw people’s attention to a couple possible alternatives, and to solicit feedback for equivalent (or better) carriers.
Google Fi. They have a base cost of $20 per month for the first line, plus $15 for each additional line. Data is a flat $10/GB, and you’re refunded on the data that you do not use. Their cheapest phone is the Nexus 5P (well reviewed) for $199.
Cricket Wireless. They have a tiered pricing structure, with $30/$40/$50/$60 getting you 1, 2.5, 8, and 10 GB of data, respectively. All tiers include unlimited talk and text in the US, while the two most expensive tiers include unlimited international texting and unlimited talk in the US, Canada, and Mexico.
Does anybody have any other carrier(s) they know about that may serve as a preferable alternative?
