I’ve been with Sprint for almost 15 years, but that’s coming to an end because of the T-Mobile merger. Since I have an old 3G iphone, I’ll need a new one. And I don’t need T-Mobile’s $60/mo unlimited data plan.
I’ve known about Republic for a long time and would consider joining. But as many have pointed out, there are even cheaper alternatives out there, such as Ting’s $10/mo plan and pay per GB, at $5 per, and I use very little to no data.
I see that Republic now has the same thing, but at $15/mo. So I’m wondering, why would anyone take the $20/mo 1 GB plan, when they might as well go with the $15/mo plan? This way if they use a half a gig, they’d save $2.50.
I’d have to see if the phone I get is compatible with RW, and Ting, but I’d rather start with the cheaper Ting plan and see how it goes.
