When I first started to research Republic 6 years ago one could see where the savings came from… the use of Wifi calling. But that was then and now other companies are competing with wireless phone & data… and better deals. I should also note that Home Direct is also a disappointment in that it STILL can’t yet screen spam calls. And if I’m away from WiFi… the call should just go to my cell, not ring both phones.
Anyway, Republic needs to be more competitive… and they could start with rolling over wireless data. I barely use 50 megs a month and I feel I’m paying for the gig and not using it… while others may take full benefit of that data. So I’m subsidizing them. Otherwise what if we all just shut down our phone’s Wifi and went totally cellular?
