Consumer Reports Rates RW

Just got the new Consumer Reports, which has a section on cell phones and service providers. They rated Republic Wireless number 3 in the prepaid services category. Google FI was number 1 and Page Plus was number 2.

Kudos to RW for a top 3 finish.


I haven’t seen the article yet, but plan to.

Given the lead times for such articles, especially if based on consumer polling, I wonder if RW’s placing is based wholly on the 2.0 plan, or are they rating the 3.0 that well?

I read the article. They didn’t distinguish but the survey was done in the second half of 2016. Most likely all or nearly all respondents were on plans prior to 3.0. I wonder what results will show if they do it again in a year or so.
