After 6 years with Republic Wireless, I must say goodbye. Thanks to your low prices in 2013, I finally jumped on cell phone bandwagon. I had resisted all the prior years because I couldn’t justify the over-priced services for reception that was less than stellar. But RW made it worth the jump. So I started with my first phone: Moto X 1st gen.
Since then I bought 4 more RW phones. A few years later, I put my son and then my new wife on to my plan. We learned to live with the occasional phone quirks. We endured unexpected poor reception that popped up often as we travel about North Carolina and the east coast. But we had a reasonable good phone plan.
Last year, I move my Nexus 6P to Google Fi to experiment with their system. While traveling the White Mountains of NH, I lost signal only in the remotest of areas, while my wife and her RW Moto E4+ had trouble even in the cities.
Last month, we finally closed my RW account when my wife changed to an iPhone 6 through Spectrum and their low pricing. Her reception is even better than mine.
Still, it has been an interesting 6 years as a member of the RW family. I had fun doing some beta testing for you. Tech Support has been good. RW community has always been helpful.
Unfortunately, now that a cell phone has become an integrated part of my life, quality cell service and price are even more important now. So I must say goodbye.
Thank you for all of your support,
