Perhaps you’re referring to something in addition to Republic but with regard to Republic, there has been precisely one ownership change. DISH bought the Republic brand and certain other assets including us (the customers). Notably, Republic Wireless, Inc. continues on as Relay, Inc.
I suppose it depends on what one means by prepare. If one means take a look around and see what else is out there that might fit one’s needs (in other words a Plan B), I think there’s always something to be said for that. But, I don’t think present circumstances warrant a preemptive jump to another service provider. As frustrating as it might be, I think the best course of action for now is no action (wait and see).
