The small wireless operator uses both Wi-Fi hotspots and traditional cell phone network to offer voice and data service for phones at much lower costs compared to competing offerings from much larger carriers. The service uses Wi-Fi networks where they are available and switches to a cellular network when a Wi-Fi connection is not in range.
Republic Wireless’ free six months of service promo was also available last year.
